Challenge Chewsday - one of my own!

Right off the bat, I'm going to need to ask you to be kind to me today.

Firstly because I'm not at all sure of the card that I've made, but if I take the time to make another one, Challenge Chewsday will turn into Where the Heck Have You Been Wednesday and that's just not in the rules.

Secondly, I have found a picture online that I rather like so have turned it into a bit of a challenge of my own - the first I have ever thrown out there, so make of THAT what you will.

And thirdly, I have just spent waaaaay longer than usual with the process of uploading and editing my photo as our hard drive packed it in on Saturday morning, presenting me with an error message that I simply could not decipher when I switched it on, so I have had no computer all weekend, got it back yesterday afternoon and have spent a goodly chunk of this evening re-loading my programs, trying and failing to locate the disc that came with our camera in order to load photo's onto the computer (I managed a work-around), re-doing my watermark in Photoshop and getting myself all hot and bothered in the process in this incessantly humid Perth weather.

Whinge over.  Moving on...

This is the challenge that I set for myself this week...


The image comes from a blog I love to look at and have stashed away in my Google Reader in a file I call Gorgeous Inspiration.  I'm sure when you check out A Creative Mint for yourself, you will agree that it has been aptly filed :-)

Here is the card that I based on the colours above and am still unsure of, but we've been over that, so here you go...


I just received the Sale-a-bration set So Happy for You last week, and this was its first foray out of the box.  I did plan to keep the card simple, but I think I may have erred too much on the side of simplicity as it turns out...

This stamp set is one of the four that is available to you for FREE with a purchase of over $100 during the Sale-a-bration period, which finishes up at the end of the month.
