Well here I am, eventually!, with another card. I don't know I just can't seem to get a regular dose of my hobby at all at the moment. When I get a few hours free I'm cramming in making cards, as I know that free time seems to be very small just now.
So we've had one set of guests come and go, more cleaning to be done ready for the next set on Friday - my daughter has had a cold over the weekend and was 'high maintenance' as hubby calls it! I've hoovered top to bottom on my house, made more apple jelly and am looking at how to make apple danish pastries! Phew, makes me sound really busy doesn't it - but where is the card making in that! I'm getting really twitchy as all I'm getting at the mo is an hour or so, really need a good 3 / 4 hrs to make me happy!
So I won't waffle on too much as I want to enter this card into a couple of challenges and I'm sure one finishes today. I've missed so many the last couple of weeks - what happened to Emily starting school and me having more time?! It's so not happening!!
Shut up me and show card:
Faye this one is for you - sorry I'm so late showing my purchase (one of many), what can I say - I'm just a busy domestic goddess (and if you believe that you'll believe anything ;-) )
Detail of image:
Saturated Canary Digi image - Neveah, coloured with Promarkers (no stickles - shock, horror!), die-cut with a nestie and chalked for definition.
Papers are all First Edition - mostly New Leaf, some Hideaway (these are my absolute new loves - even more than Basic Grey pads!)
Gems from my drawers.
Hope everyone else is well,
P.S. - Does anyone have any good tips on taking pics - my camera isn't too bad, it's a Panasonic DSL with lots of idiot proofing - but how do I actually get a good set up in the first place? I've seen, somewhere, a cardboard box chopped up and tissue paper put in place of the sides (is this a sort of light box?) does anyone know if that helps? I'm stuffed at the mo - the light has changed in the conservatory (where I normally take my pics) and the rest of our house is dull! Helppppp?!
