Hi Everyone! I really intended to post this for Friday, but I was having problems getting my pictures to turn out decently. My DH has a great camera, thanks to me ( I talked him into getting it last year because he has always loved photography) which I use to photograph my cards. I don't know a thing about the camera - my brain only has so much space and I have decided not to waste it with camera knowledge when I can just use my DH's brain (just kidding, but really it's so much easier just to have him fix all of the settings!) Every time I needed to photograph a card I set a box up on the couch, under my OTT light, draped it with a white pillow case, set up the tripod (fussing for 5 to 10 minutes everytime to set it to the right height) then snapped the picture. All of a sudden all of the pictures looked awful. Plus it took forever for one picture because of all of the set-up. I made a change today that is better, but not perfect. I bought a white plastic storage container about the size of a shoe-box that I can easily sit on the table next to the window (and that height is much better for the tripod, too.) How do the rest of you take your card photo's?
The other issue I am having today is that Blogger reader is not updating any of the blogs I am following. It says there is nothing new when I can see there is something new that i haven't read. THis is all new to me, so if someone else has had this problem and knows what is wrong, please let me know!
So, on to my card for today!
I used Susie Suprise, one of the new releases from The Greeting Farm. I love her delighted expression! THe DP on the card is Shabby Princess ( red polka dot) and Daisy D's (large polka dot and stripe). I colored Susie with Copics:
Clothes and Balloons: R81,R83,R27,R29,BG11,BG45,BG72,Y000,Y00,Y02, C1,C3
Also, I just want to remind everyone about the big New Release Blog Hop from The Greeting Farm and Club Anya on the 15th. If you haven't signed up to participate, or want more details go HERE.
Thanks for visiting - have a great weekend!
