Can I just state one more time for the record how much I hate my camera? I won't do closeups...rrrrrrr!

This technique is so much fun! In fact, I can't believe I never uploaded pics of the several others I've done (prob due to that camera issue!). But here's a look at today's....

Thanks for looking, and for all of the new inspirations for View Master cards!

I was thinking the same thing. There are a few steps missing. Read the comment section in the tutorial. I don't see any answers for all but there is a bit of help. I'm still confused.

Thanks for the CHALLENGE...and it WAS a challenge...at least for me....

Took me forever and I almost gave up...but glad I didn't as I'm pleased with the result.

Thanks so much for getting me to do this today!

Here is mine and thanks for looking!

I wanted to be different, and two of my images (antlers in the one I linked below) show in the ~turn~ area

I hope DH can figure out my problem there. If so, this might eventually be technique class worthy!

http:////www.splitcoaststampers.com/...0&ppuser=65469

TFL! Any suggestions for improvement welcome!

Thanks, Beth for this week's challenge! I have been away for so long that I have not been able to do the challenges. I have so missed them. My goal is to do each one for this week!

I messed up on the dial thingy because it is sticking out too much, but I wanted to upload it anyway as I do not have time to do another one. Here is my card:

I haven't done one of these in awhile. I took the colors from my swimsuit but I don't know if I love it.

Thanks for a truly difficult challenge for me...I had a hard time thinking of what to do with the rest of the card after I decided on doing a flower in the window.

Oh, I was so excited about today's challenge... that is until I sat down and tried to follow the directions. After hours of reading, trying, wasting a ton of paper - In Colors - I have given up. Maybe my wheel was too big ~ there weren't any dimensions given ~ or maybe my window hole was off a little ~ top right corner could be just about anywhere ~ maybe it was that I couldn't figure out how in the tutorial it showed a little piece of blue behind the wheel and I was trying to put in an entire piece 5 3/8 x 4 1/8 and lining up the two side partial holes ~ in any case, I've trashed the whole project!!! I must be the Villiage Idiot, because everyone else has obviously made wonderful, delightful cards with the same instructions. I'll try again next week!

Here's my first attempt with a View Finder. I don't know if it counts because I messed up somewhere and mine doesn't really turn. LOL! Well it spins out of the card and sometimes misses my circle.

Here is my card for today's challenge.. I needed to stamp today and what a great way to spend my day. Only took me about 6 hours to do... No motivation today what so ever. I do like how it turned out. TFL!!!

Well, here's my final outcome, after trashing tons of paper and getting very frustrated with this challenge. Thanks girls for all the encouragement. I kept the outside really simple because frankly I'm just tired of working on it!!

You're right! I can't find your card either! I guess you'll just have to upload it again. I already commented on it, but I will again!
