pineapple - international symbol of hospitality


hi there,
still looking to use some stamps that have been collecting dust...and spied my big ole pineapple! Have colored that pineapple so many different ways - on this one I used SU's water color crayons and then glazed it.....
ok - since I went and pointed out my mistake on my Magnolia post...(and so many of you were so sweet and didnt notice)....that I'm not going to tell you what I did wrong on this one......LOL big grin!!!!

(I make these dumb mistakes when trying to do to many things at once!!)

Submitting this one in the Card Positioning Sketch Challenge

Have a blessed day - stay warm - going to be another stinging cold day here

Stamps: Pineapple from Tin Can Mail and Sentiment from Wordsworth
Paper: SU's Sage, white and designer paper
Ink: Memento Black, SU Mustard and Not Quite Navy, Vivid's Aqua
Embellishments: ribbon from stash, square nesties
Technique: sponging, matting, glazing

Not fair! Now you have gotten me curious. I have even clicked on it and looked at the bigger version - can't find any 'mistake'. I think you are juat toying with my mind. LOL
It is lovely. Thanks for your kind words on my blog.

OK Linda I STILL can't see any mistake, even when I try and look :).

This is simply beautiful!

Ok Linda, I don't see any flaws on this one!! Lovely card. I have 2 wooden pineapples that sit on my shelves in my dining room.

Okay Linda this is so not fair. First, I love how you colored the pineapple and then glazed it. BUT, clicked on it and still nothing wrong. You will have to tell us.

Linda, If I was only half as good at coloring as your "so-called" mistakes... I would be so happy!

Hi Linda!
As usual you have outdone yourself.
This card is so charming.
I like the colors, the laid back feel & just how overall pretty it is to look at.
Nice job.
Hugs,
Sonia

Oh dear, I am still new to stamping that it would take me forever to find the mistake. Your pineapple is beautiful. It reminds me of warmer Florida days (we are in a freeze warning tonight!). I look forward to seeing more of your work as I can certainly learn from your work.
Thank you for the well wishes on my blog.
Don't forget: I am having monthly card contests on my blog for charity!

WOW, this is beautiful!

That is the most beautifully-colored pineapple I have EVER seen! The pineapple itself is gorgeous but your finishing of it is really fantastic. Everyone loves a challenge and I studied the card for your 'mistake.' If I guess that it's the 'back edge' of the table not lining up, that's being hypercritical and certainly not noticed unless looking for an alleged mistake. If it was something else, I missed it and am sorry I brought this up. :-)
