We have all heard it before....the photo does not look as good as the real thing...well it is true! 
A shame my photo taking is wanting. The up side is...wait for it...that is the big reason why I started scraping. To make a bad photo look great! know the ones you took and don't have the negative or the children are all grown up...and that used coffee cup is in the picture....and, who is that person that keeps on getting in the way just when I took the shot. We could all go and do the moment  again...but now the kids are a bit taller and grandpapa is a bit more we won't....Well. that is life...there is also photo shop.....but.... I think of all the hours it will take me to learn it....I'd rather make a few extra flowers to cover the nasties. 
The solution for you, is to make the card yourself...then you too can see how really great it is...LOL
....and...if you too can have inky fingers.
I shall leave you with that scrappy thought and inky hugs for this week.


  1. Hi, Sussi! If you drive through the mountains in Western North Carolina, you'll find dozens of rustic little roadside stands groaning beneath the weight of jars of jams, honey, fresh berries, fruit and veg. This card captures that rustic roadside stand feel perfectly! I love the climbing vines and beautiful flowers! And the embossing and coloring are magnificent! Nicely done!

  2. loving that gold embossing on this card, your flowers are gorgeous.

  3. WOW... love the magic you create with the gold embossing :)

  4. Beautiful!! Love it!! hugsxx
