I have a new toy!

Hello fellow bloggers,

So how are we all today?  Can you believe that I'm posting two days in a row - you never know if I keep this up I might manage two posts in one day!

Anyhow, my new toy - hubby has brought me a light cube!  I've only taken a couple of pictures using it (this one included) so please excuse any flaws - I'm trying out different places to put the thing, which is huge by the way.  It's so big Emily could almost crawl right into it (and she tried!)!  I have to say though I do like it, it certainly has stopped the problem I'm having with the light being too bright in the conservatory, not tried taking a picture at night yet.

And don't go thinking that hubby treated me - he said he could use it for when he takes pictures for his web-site!

So onto my card:

Only the one picture today, as I'm trying to work out how to get close to the card - without trying to crawl into the cube with the card!  I know I could zoom, but my hands wobble and the pic gets fuzzy.  I think I'll have to dig out the little stand that came with my camera.

So here is what I used:

Image is a Pollycraft digi - Taking a Break, coloured with my Promarkers (don't ask me what happened to his face - I completely mucked that up!).
The papers are all from K&Co - Hopscotch pad.
Martha Stewart punch.
Lili of the Valley sentiment, die cut with a nestie.
I made the card blank.

So that's it from me for now, hopefully will be here again soon.

Take care,
