Firstly, a very warm welcome to my new Friends. It is great having you here and I so look forward to catching up with you too. If you haven't taken part in the big Where Bloggers Create 2013 party, you are missing out BIG time! I have just browsed through a few of the most awesome creative blogs and come across the most interesting hobbies, which I never even knew existed. So, do take a peek on Karen Valentine's blog **My Desert Cottage** for the list of participants this year.
Gosh... 3 posts in 3 consecutive days... Am I a keen crafter or what?
It is my birthday next month and I have already received a birthday gift from my daughter... this lovely Red Nikon Coolpix camera. It's amazing how comfortable and "used to" your old equipment you become. Since I bought the new computer too, I feel I still need to find my way around these new tools. It is a bit of a pain in the backside and at times it makes we wish for my old equipment, but I am sure I will get "it" one of these days!!! I need the practice taking pics, uploading it to the computer, editing it and finally posting it. A longer process for me, until I get the knack of it...lol
Right... now let me share a card I made earlier this evening. It's one of my C&S ones and I find that I am still struggling to find a nice "spot" to take my pics, as there are too many shadows falling over them... sigh!
The beautiful paper I purchased from my friend Paola. I have kept it very simple as the recipient is a no fuss lady. Methinks the ribbon may be a bit "over the top" for her, but I just could NOT resist putting it on. Would have loved to add a few pearls, but thought I'd better not.
Here is a pic of the inside, which I have kept just as simple. I've just taken a Croxley Record Card and cut it to fit inside and stamped a reed image using TH's Vintage Photo distress ink. Now I can write my message on the inside.
The plain magenta coloured paper were leftovers from another card and I just cut a border using MS's Vintage Doily. Creates a frame around the paper. Quite nice don't you think?
Thanks for popping by. Do leave a comment before you go as I so enjoy reading them.
