Grumpy Wednesday!


Morning Peeps!

Short and sweet from me today as I'm in a rather grumpy mood! Sweet Cheeks, however is much improved, which I'm happy about.

I just love this little stamp and when I was thinking about using her, I wanted to make the image look a bit sepia, not sure I pulled it off. I really must spend some time on my colouring. And my camera is annoying me at the moment. The light is good here, but the camera is not picking it or the colours up and coming out a little blurry if I doctor them too much. See, I told you I was grumpy! ;)

I'm going to enter this card at:

Lovel , lovely , lovely, as always Faye. You have totally pulled off the sepia look. Love it. Not sure what you mean about having to work on your colouring tho, think you have it spot on!
Take care - and chin up!!

I saw this image on Sunday at AP and I was sooo tempted. Now I wish I'd bought it to go with my lovely Jack and Jill papers! Love the sepia tones. It worked very well, Fluff and either my eyesight is deteriorating or your photo is alot better than you think it is! Pleased that SC is feeling better. Now take care of you and smile, smile, smile! Hugs, Lesley

Oh poor you being grumpy! I was like that two weeks ago, can't tell you why! but I could have screamed, smashed something and cried at nothing....
You will be ok soon, and let me tell you, your card is lovely and yes, you have pulled the sepia look off.

I love the image and the colour choice Faye....just adorable! You pulled it off for sure. I feel a little grumpy too. Probably due to having my very own demolition team home for the Easter hols, lol!

Very pleased that SC is a bit better today but sorry to hear that you're not exactly full of the joys! Must be something in the air, as quite a few people seem to be a bit out of sorts. I'm on a choccie high atm as Gregor and I have just polished off a (small-ish) box of Quality Street. Well we couldn't just leave them there, looking lonely and unloved, could we? Blimey, nearly forgot to say how much I love your card - the colouring is fab (as ever) so don't be so hard on yourself missus!! xx

Gorgeous!! You've totally got the sepia look down and what a sweet image, I've never seen it before. Love that wooden flower button.

Glad Sweet Cheeks is better and I hope your sour mood turns sweet!! Love the new look of your blog!!

Mrs A. said...

I want the stamp and the button pronto!!! In a grumpy mood too cos I got bitten (not by The Doc) in the garden and now I'm on antibiotics cos me leg swelled up and I got blood posioning. Muver.

Bananastamper said...

Hey grumpy girl, join the crowd! I am so having one of those weeks! lol
Anyhow, you totally pulled it off, I lOVE how you coloured her! She is adorable and beautifully coloured. I have never even attempted something like this! Here's hoping something or someone carries the grumpies away - mine have been hanging around since the weekend....
I just enjoyed a cinnamon bun sent over by Danderella - how did she know I NEEDED these tonight?!? That's what friends are for eh? Go get some chocolate girl, it WILL help! Your card though does NOT need any help! Yep, so now I've gone and written a novel - guess I should get to bed!
Hugs,
Banana :)
