PRETTY HEAD LILLY........AGAIN!!

***Quick edit: I changed the pic size in the previous post!! No wonder they weren't that great!! If you have time, take a look again!!! Thanks!!!***


Hi all, how are you today? Today we are having a SNOW DAY!!! How about you?? Kyah is SO excited; she wants to make cards!! So, we will have fun stuff to post later!!!
OK, so my DH loves this Pretty Head Lilly image, from The Greeting Farm!! I am slightly drawn to it as well (haha), especially in varying sizes!! You just have to LOVE it, ya know? That being said, here is another card using this LOVELY image! You can find TGF on my side bar; Lilly is a Digi image, in case you forgot! Hehe! I layered my K&Company BG paper on my SU CS. I LOVE that Basic Grey CS from SU, such a great shade of grey!! I also used my Nesties. Speaking of which, I really would have LOVED a bigger size of ovals for this, mine weren't big enough for the larger image to fit!! I was a tad bummed. You know how you have something in your head?! Oh well, I will have to look for that bigger size, I just think it would have looked nicer with an oval; instead of a circle. I finished this creation off with a sentiment from Verve! If you can't use a UNITY one, you have to use VERVE! They BOTH have the neatest sayings!! Oh, I was also was thinking of using my NEW Labels Nesties, however, that didn't have a big enough one either!! Ackk! Hate it when that happens!! Hehe!! You know, I have also noticed that the Labels One set has too much space in between sizes! Frustrating!! Does anyone know of or have any suggestions??
Well, I have another card to share with you. The second one is just a simple one, but, I really like how it turned out. What do you think? I used my NEW Rhonna Farrer rub-ons, that my friend DEBBY sent me. Thank you SO much DEBBY!! I finally used them!! I had been wanting to and just had a creative block! .....Block lifted! Hehe! I also used the same K&Company BG paper & SU CS, except red this time. Alright, I have gabbed enough!! Oh, sorry, one last thing. Can you all suggest a good light? You know, those natural lights that people use?? I want better lighting for coloring and taking pics. Been a little irritated with the whole pic thing latley!! I have been taking SO many, just to get ONE good one!! I am sure some of you can relate!! I thought of saying, ALL, but I have seen your pics and know they look professional!!! There is a new store opening here and they have a Verilux light on sale for $40. I guess it is origianlly $80. It says it has a natural spectrum indoor light?? What do you think? I know I keep asking you that, but, hey...I LOVE your thoughts and opinions!! Ok......I am done!! Hehe!! Thank you so much for stopping by and listening to me ramble!! What can I say, I like talking with you!!! I will be back later!!! Have Fun and......ENJOY LIFE!!!!

Both cards are beautiful, Jacquie! I keep looking at that digi stamp, and thinking about it -- fun to see how you made her up!

Debby said...

They both turned out exceptionally cute. I use this. http://tinyurl.com/ake6a8

I do believe you still have to have knack for taking photos. Uh. I don't.

Jacquie,

This is so, so cute!! I love Lily too!! She is just adorable! I have the same problem with the nesties. I am really hoping they will come out with sizes in between for all the label dies. Glad you had fun today! Sorry that you have to work tomorrow. Have fun though!

Smiles,
janna
