Hope your day is FIN-tastic

Hello ladies, today’s card is for Just Magnolia – we want to see buttons and bows on your cards.Claudia_Rosa_Mermaid_1
I worked on this card over the past week. This card is really a work of heart. I don’t know how many times I sketched out this little sczene. I really wanted the seaweed behind Tilda and I could not find the stamp. Finally I decided to “doodle” it in.. but honestly I am just not a Chris Dark. OMG.. I wished I could just simply draw myself the little things in. Check out her “simple doodeling” right here. I just drool over her work!

Finally, I found that silly seaweed stamp in a box and I started all over again. I must say  I am really happy with this card. Usually when my cards are made, I put them into a save drawer and keep them there but this one is on display in my living room where I can see it all the time Smile dam I guess its because I know how long this card took me to make. Asking hubby about his opinion.. the largest reaction I could get out of him was “nice”! awwwh!!!.. I guess there will be no dinner tonight for him hahahahahClaudia_Rosa_Mermaid_2
Stamps: Tilda Pearl
Seaweed
Barrel
Seashell
Ocean Background
Papers: Magnolia bubbles paper

all right.. sorry for the load of photos. I have added a few more because Chrissy mentioned the other day she would love to see the coloring more. The reason I have the “protection” on my blog is simply because I got really sad about all the the image theft that has been happening. One lady one time even started her own Splitcoast gallery with some of my photos. Claudia_Rosa_Mermaid_5I will let you go into your weekend with a big hug and thanks for all your support and compliments. Wish me good luck with Niklas. He is down with step throat – I hope we will not get sick.Claudia_Rosa_Mermaid_6

That is a beautiful card! You can tell you put some time into it with all the embellishments. It is sad that people still pics. of people's work. I truly don't understand why they do it. Is it just to act like they made the project? That is just sad. But have I heard of more and more of it going on. They really look bad when you post that the work does not belong to her. I don't understand people like that.
I hope your son gets better soon.

This is gorgeous hun I love the little scene! I can relate to the problem with people stealing your photographs, someone pinched a few of mine along with some other crafters and sold the images on cd's!
Enjoy your weekend!

I can't believe people are using your pictures and passing them off as their own work. Why would someone do that? I just don't get it, and it is very sad and disappointing. I like many others appreciate your generosity in sharing you work - it offers so much inspiration and visiting your blog is helping me experiment and find my own style. In fact I might even start watermarking my own pictures soon, although I don't imagine anyone is going to try to pass my efforts off as their own. :)

Wendy said...

Claudia, Love this card!! Totally fabulous. My husband and I have a running joke- I ask him to look at a card and before he looks he says something along the lines of "nice" THEN he looks. Then he says something very helpful like "really nice" This is why I broke down and got myself a blog. If my cards were as "nice" as yours I'd hang them in the window for my neighbors to see too. Thanks for the inspiration.
