Thank You

Hello everyone!

Happy New Year!!  I hope that all of you have a blessed, and prosperous year.  2015 is going to be a busy one for me, but I look forward to all of the excitement.  I'm hoping to be more crafty too.  You'll have to come back tomorrow, for the start of something new.  Then in February, I'm pretty excited to be guest designing for one of my favorite challenges.  Hopefully, you'll join me in some of my new crafty adventures. :-)

I have another card for you today.  Here is what I made.

As the sun is less and less available, it's harder for me to snap pictures of my cards.  I tried a light box, but it didn't work out for me.  I'm not sure what I did wrong, but my pictures were terrible.  I'm not sure what to do, but if anyone has any suggestions on taking better photos, I would appreciate the help!  So, I stamped the flower in VersaMark and embossed in silver, then colored it with my SU! Blendabilities.  This is a huge accomplishment for me, as you know I'm not one who colors much.  I love how it turned out though.  I'm going to submit this card for the following challenges...

Creative Card Crew #77: Anything Goes
Just Us Girls #273: Inspiration Photo
Mojo Monday #378: Sketch (tall and skinny this week, my card is 3 1/2 x 5 1/2)
I hope you'll stop by tomorrow, to check out my first new crafty adventure.  Have a wonderful day!

Your card is beautiful!! I understand your frustration with photographing your cards I am still struggling with that myself. I do have a light box and have really messed with the settings in my camera. I did a lot of research on Pinterest and that seemed to help. Like I said I'm still not content. I like taking photos outside. I think your photo looks great! Don't give up!! I so appreciate you joining the girls and I at JUGS this week! Hope to see you again soon!! Good luck!!

This card is gorgeous Steph! I am only truly happy with my photos when I take them with natural light. I have not had much luck with a homemade lightbox that I tried.
I do love all the fun, pretty details on this card! Glad you found some sun to get in photographed!
