Camera Woes

Oh, my camera. I haz a sad, a big sad. I also haz three cards for the current Anything Goes challenge at Paper Smooches SPARKS, but I am most unhappy with the pictures I've managed to take. Keep your fingers crossed that when we finally get my good camera into the shop, that they can fix it! The first photo was taken with the now-ailing camera, and  the second was taken with the kids' *koff* crappy camera. The third was taken with my phone. Sigh.

The dying camera (which, somehow, uploading here it doesn't look so bad in draft....hmmm...)

Supplies: Paper Smooches kitty, 'hee', shadow, yarn ball & paw print stamps; CTMH haha! stamp; Unity 'you.are.old' stamp; Spectrum Noir markers; Memento Tuxedo Black & Gray Flannel inks; distress inks in Evergreen Boughs, Spiced Marmalade, and Tumbled Glass; WPlus9 banner die; classic small circle Nesties


The kids' camera:


Supplies: Paper Smooches birdie, puhleeze! stamps; AC Thickers; Bic Markers; MME paper

My phone:

Supplies: Paper Smooches Zoo Crew; Bic markers; AC Thickers; Recollections pleated ribbon; MME papers; Corner Chomper

It took me a long time to be happy with the photos I was taking - and now that I'm not, I'm kind of surprised at how upset I am about it! I haven't wanted to sit at my desk & make much, and I'm having a most unladylike snit about the whole thing. Oh well. I'm not much of a lady anyhow ;)


xoxo,
Jessi

All THREE are so adorable!! The camera and phone took pretty good pictures too. Sending good vibes that it doesn't take an arm and a leg to have the camera repaired. In the meantime keep plugging away and creating cuties like these.

You are so funny, Jessi! Wow! At least you have 3 cameras with you and I think all of them look good.

Love all the fun loving animals cards!

Well your cards are cute regardless of your camera being on the fritz!! I love the first one with the sentiment and the laughing hehe's cloud behind the cute kitty! I hope your camera gets fixed fast!!

Lindsey said...

fortunately for you, Jessi, the cards speak for themselves, even if the cameras are less than perfect! And I never thought that cute kitty in the first one could be so very, very mean... ;)

Annette Allen said...

Greta said...

These are just darling, Jessi! I'm never happy with my pictures--gives me an excuse for why they don't win--LOL!

All your cards are so much fun Jessi, my fave is the laughing kitty! (hope you get your camera back soon, so much time is wasted when you are not happy with the photos... it's so frustrating)

What great cards, love the kitty one the best although it is hard to choose. As for your snit....I have a stamp that works for you...Put your big girl panties on and deal with it. Luvs ya.

I agree with everyone else, the pics look fine. And OMG! Your cards are sooo adorable! Yeah, that kitty laughing is my favorite too! Hope your camera troubles end soon.

You poor dear, I hate when technology doesn't cooperate!
Your cards are adorable!

These cards are great! I know about camera frustrations. Mine died recently when I was home sick (I've had 3 colds in 3 months so no telling which round it was) and I took my germs out into public to get a new one and then it took special batteries so I had to go back and exchange it and wah....

These birthday cards are the best!

Princess Judy Palmer said...

That cat is still mocking me....!

yes, I know I'm old.

*sob*

Barbara Murphy said...

Back in the college dining hall, one of the guys said, "pardon me, ladies" and my pal shouted, "WHO ARE YOU CALLING A LADY?!" Poor guy almost dropped his tray.

So yeah, so not a lady.

And your pictures look as good as mine do. Oh, wait ...

Savannah O'Gwynn said...

SUPER SUPER cute cards! LOVE the laughing on the first one! And the googley eyes on the second cracks me up! LOVE that last one with the three zoo animals:) FUN! THANKS so much for joining in the fun with the Paper Smooches Sparks challenge;)

Hope you play along with us this week for our Picture Perfect challenge <3

Jessi, love the first card..I had a major 'ladylike snit' about my photos a few months ago..so I know how you feel. Cx

Emily Keaton said...

OK, ALL of these are so much fun!! I really need to try to make more funny/punny "ha, you are now old" kinds of birthday cards. These are great!!

Asha said...

After I stopped laughing, I read about your camera woes. It's a bummer when we have to see to the serious business of taking decent pictures for the blog. The pictures aren't bad, really. Maybe the Easter bunny will bring you a new camera instead of chocolate eggs!
hugs, Asha
