Say Cheese...

Good morning!

So, just for the record, I one-hundred percent dislike the new blogger format. I woke up this morning to a totally changed appearance, and although I have TRIED to find something good about it, I can't.  Whew...thanks for letting me get that off my chest.  Would love to know what you think of it!

I decided to try the Wednesday sketch at the Outlawz sketch challenge again, and wanted a simple card for mailing. Oh, how I love to color. It's always fun to get one of the little girlie images out and waste lots of time with markers or colored pencils :)  Today's card uses a C.C. Designs Swiss Pixies image, called 'Camera Birgitta'.

Supplies: Cardstock (unknown), White cardstock (XpressIt Blending), Copic Markers, Pearl Flowers from Michael's $1 bin, Oval Spellbinder's Large, Glossy Accents for glasses and camera lens, DP: My Mind's Eye "Miss Caroline".


I'll be entering this card in the Wednesday Challenge at All That Scraps: Anything Goes.

Sure hope your week has gone well, and that you have a nice relaxing weekend in store. I think we do!  

Thanks for stopping by - be sure and put April 25th on your calendars! Creations by AR gals are having a blog hop to showcase two fabulous new templates by Adela - hope to see you here. There will be prizes, as always!

Hugs and smiles,

Patti J.

Oh, Patti! What a sweet card! I don't know what new format you are talking about...mine looked the same this morning. Maybe I had already made the change as I do know when I changed it was difficult to get used to. HUGS!

She is very cute Patti. I hope you do end up having a very relaxing weekend. I'm going to check out your DD's blog. My husband was in the USAF & I know how hard things were for him. :(

Awesome card! Love the bling and nice job with the coloring! Hope you get used to the new format even if you don't like it!

Loving your adorable card Patti. My Blogger am sure hasn't changed yet but if you don't like it then I'm bound not to like it either. Enjoy the weekend, Annette x

this card is adorable!

I switched to the new blogger a while ago when they did the beta test so I've become used to it and actually like several things better now that I've used it for a while. good luck transitioning! And, have you ever thought about changing your site feed settings to full? That will let your photos be seen in google reader. Just a suggestion but not a necessity by any means. :) LMK if I can help.

Adorable layout for this card! I agree about Blogger - I have spend most of the day pulling my hair out trying to figure out where my stuff is!

I'm liking the alternating papers and the sweet image! I never did "upgrade" to the new Blogger so I got it automatically this morning too! It's a little strange but maybe it won't take too long to get used to it.

Super adorable card! Love your little pearl flowers! I love the new blogger! It took a bit to get used to but I find it more user friendly then the old blogger (0=

Shirley said...

Patti, she is just adorable and I really like those pearly flowers you gave her too!!

I guess i am use to change all the time.
What a cutie today, really like the papers and added sparkles.
Enjoy your weekend

My screen had changes also so I just changed it back to the old blogger. Maybe I should not have and the new one is probably the way to go. Just did not feel up to dealing with the change lol.

Your card is lovely and the girl is adorable!

Auntie Em said...

Your card is so cute! I love the papers and your cutie patootie you used. You are certainly not wasting your time!

The new format is a little awkward to get use to but at least our blogs look the same. :)

Hope you are having a good weekend. They go by so fast! :)

Darling card - she is so darn adorable and love the layout. the flowers in the R corner are perfect. I'm still getting used to the new format - and I've had it now for a while when I switched over to Google Chrome.

Pam Sparks said...

Beautiful card, love your coloring and the layout!

Carole said...

Hello lovely lady, how are you Patti, I SO love when you visit, always leaves me feeling uplifted, thank you. I love the bling and the wonderful layout and what an adorable stamp. Big hugs ... Carole

Maria Matter said...

beautiful Patti, such a little sweetie!

I forced myself to change awhile back so I would get used to it by the time they changed. It's pretty easy once you learn how to get to everything again. give it time my dear, you'll be fine! :)
hugs & blessings

Gorgeous card as always Patti! love that image. I haven't made a card for ages, still trying to finish my dress, but soon very soon, I'll post it.
I hope you have a lovely Sunday.

Love the card Patti, what sweet image and love the papers and sparkle.
Like you I hate New blogger! why mend something thats not broken?
It took me a good while to even find the bashboard which gives me three posting at a time then have to click for more....grrr!!!!
The only good thing I can say about it is that my friends are still where I left them :-))
Hugs Mau xx
