All about the eyes!

Hi Folks, What happened to the sun? Have you got it with you? Well didn't we have a wonderful sunny warm few days? It was gorgeous here for a long time!
I have made a card for the LIM 35 which is about the colour of your eyes...................well pardon the photo being on the side, I had to get my face under the daylight bulb and the camera has a function which turns the photo if the camera is tilted, can't turn it off but you get the colour of my eyes, right? Forget the droopy eylids and tired look, no don't turn round to see it properly tut now you've spoiled the illusion, you're supposed to be looking at the colour! right? LOL
Sort of brown with a bluey grey edge. I have tried to capture that with my card, the bluey shade is sprayed onto the speckles. I wasn't going to share because I was uninspired this week and my card's a bit lame again but I didn't want to miss a week.:{ I have a feeling I boiled over last week with the 1000 card challenge and there wasn't much left after that... burn out !!!LOL Anyway     here it is. By my way of thinking you don't need to be at Christmas for this greeting, am I wrong? I have used a stamp from Deborah's candy that I won, yummy!!                                                 Right I'm off to check out some lovely Limmettes creations, TTFN, Gay

I may have your sunshine...bright sun, but a bit chilly.
Your card is very pretty...gorgeous leaves. It matches your beautiful eyes really well.

Fabulous effect with those leaves Gay, just looks like the weather today, very windy and leaves flying everywhere! We are off to A Greek island on Sunday but the forecast looks as if we are going to get showers and thunderstorms!! Hey ho:)

Fabulous Gay. That leaf stamp is fab and I love the way they`ve collected at the bottom of the card. Looks just like my dads front porch 10 minutes after I swept it this morning.Lol.

your card is lovely and i think that brown is such a hard colour to be inspiring with ! x

Debgem said...

A very pretty eye, Gay! Lovely colour - I think we all have lots of shades in the iris - great for crafting possibilities ;)

I really like your card - the falling leaves, the lovely sentiment and pretty spattered background.

We've got wind and rain here too - bye, bye Indian summer!

Dolly Daydreams said...

What lovely eyes you ave ! If you think your card is lame then I don't know how to describe mine ! Maybe I should give up blogging ! You have captured the colour perfectly and the leaf is very clever simulates the shape of the eye perfectly.

I am still laughing at you making excuses for your gorgeous eye(s)..stop that! Your card is stunning and I have to say that I may just possibly have your sunshine. We have had a couple spectacular days here and I'm not really ready to give you the sun but I would be more than happy to share it with you! Thanks for letting me visit...see you soon! Just to freak you out...I clicked on your eye for a better look...you have lovely eyes Gay and I'm impressed (but not surprised)how you got such a great picture of them.

That is such a cool eye shot. I have tried that.. But my eyes are an ugly blue/grey color.. And I have that whole droopy eye thing going on.. Oh well such is life. Can't cry over spilled milk.. That is the saying right.. I haven't even had my coffee yet this morning, can you tell..

I am loving you card. so creative..

Hugs, Linda

Oh, Gay, your eyes are beautiful. Well that one anyway and I can't see that you have lost your touch. This is a lovely card and perfect for this season. It could also double for a guy card.

GinaA said...

Love your fallen leaves, makes me want to go for a walk in the park. Well when it stops raing and blowing a gale.

I have a wonderful vision of you trying to photograph your own eye, Gay!!!
Your card is beautiful, you're putting yourself down. I love the colours, just like your eyes and I agree you can definitely use that sentiment at anytime.
Hugs Lisax

Angela said...

Not lame at all -- gorgeous in fact!

Sorry for stealing your sunshine -- it's been beautiful here all week with at least a few more days to go. Hooray!

Pauline said...

Lovely picture and beautiful eye. I guess the other one is the same.:)

fatmonica said...

Love this!The illusion of falling leaves works so well.

Sue said...

Hmmm, I have to say I don't agree with you Gay. I don't think your card is uninspired or lame, I love it. I think it's a great design, especially how the leaves go over the edge of the card and the beautiful autumn colours are beautiful. I do agree that it doesn't have to be a Christmas card. Sue.x

The Crystal Elephant said...

Mrs.B said...

'A bit lame' - I don't think so!

Great 'eye' piccy - and true life colours.

Love what you did with your leaves and the spatter is the perfect BG for them too! Very simple and pretty!

You are too funny, Gay! I love your gorgeous card. The misting looks wondering behind those leaves.
