Lilly Winter - You're a Star!

Today's Ramblings: Today's ramblings will be more of a "today's rant" lol. My saga continues of grape purple and lavender turning to blues on my camera. After spending 2 hours last night wrestling with my settings, white balance, etc, I have come to the conclusion that it's not me, it's my camera. And we shall leave it at that! I was (and still am) ready to pull out my hair! {end rant}

Yes, I am VERY hard on myself. I am my own worst critic - for shame.
Or maybe it's because I am very tired - work has been very long and stressful lately.


Lilly Winter is a star because she posed for 2 hours for me LOL - oh yes, she's mocking me right now in her glittery lavender goodness. What's that? Yes, Lilly has made me lose my mind...

Miss Lilly Winter is a freebie {found here}:

Girls - I am going crazy! Must be the lack of sleep!


Card Ingredients:
StampFairy image; K&Co and Recollections papers; Bazzill and Recollections cardstock; Copics; Square Nestie; Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder; Martha Stewart Purple Sapphire glitter; K&Co transfers with backing; M's lace ribbon; Dress It Up button; hemp twine.



I made Miss Lilly for some of my favorite Christmas challenges:

Well if you've made it this far, then you've realized that (a) I am a crazy girl or (b) I am just tired. You use your own judgment :)

Have a wonderful day!

Is it your camera or your monitor? My monitor shows nothing like my camera (or any other monitor for that matter)... It's too dark and blue for me to do any real editing using it.

Anyway, I think your card came out fabulously!

Isn't it frustrating? Our camera has a hissy fit when photographing certain shades of red - they look pink! Your card is gorgeous anyway and that's all that counts lol. Thank you for sharing with us at Bah! Humbug!
