Sparkle ?

Well you learn new stuff everyday when you get so frustrated with things !  I do have a very good photo editing programme but have no idea how to use it!  After advice from Netty to reduce my picture size I went on T'internet and found some instructions,back to photo editing and after some swearing and such finally found out how to reduce the pixels, now to all you clever people out there it is probably just dead simple but I feel quite pleased with myself!  Anyhow after all that here is my card for a couple of challenges

Fashionable Stamping - Home sweet home
Try It On Tuesday -  Christmas Sparkle

Found this stamp while looking for something else,stamped onto a spellbinders circle with spellbinders holly motif behind it. BG stamped with free snowflake stamped with versamark and coloured with pan pastels AND I finally used my shabby white frantage embossing powder, now it will be appearing on everything !


  1. Hi Joan, glad to hear you managed to sort out your problem, not something I've had yet as I always resize my pics so fingers crossed it doesn't happen to me.
    That's one really gorgeous card roo. Love the pretty background and the little scene looks so beautiful in the circular shape.
    Thanks for sharing this with us at FSC too and sorry for lack of comments - under the weather with a nasty cold bug!

  9. A beautiful card with great winter feeling. Love the image and the coloring. Thanks for joining us at FSC this fortnight.

  10. So glad you sorted out the problem Joan, I guess this is one to come for me! Love your gorgeous card today, I adore Frantage and can't stop using it - it is the most wonderful stuff and you have certainly put yours to good use. Hugs, Anne x

  11. Oh dear Joan, I do hope I am not the cause of your swearing and frustrations!!!! This is a beautiful card; one that would suit many occasions, the colour palette is delightful.

  12. I've read on so many people's blogs that are having this problem with photos. It's something I came up against few months ago and despite resizing eventually had to give in and buy some more space. But there again I guess I've uploaded an awful lot in 3 1/2 years.

    A lovely scene in the centre of your card and the Frantage really adds interest - think I need white as well.

  13. Glad you got the resizing sorted, I have had to do it and have to keep at 500 pixels on the longest side or I will go over again lol.
    Love your pretty sparkly card, the winter scene is gorgeous, but I am away on a winter break and am in the sun, never done it before. Thanks for your lovely visits and comments.
    Take care.
