Blah, Blah, Blah

Valentine's Day.
   Blah, blah blah ...

Hearts and flowers.
Yadda, yadda, yadda,

Ooh, drink and chocolate.
I've changed my mind.
There might be something to this Valentine's Day after all.

A cute, shaker card for Mr. Kiss.
And more attempts at playing with the White Balance.

(I took inspiration from the frame and the word love,
with a heart replacing the letter 'O')

Stamps/Dies - WPlus9, Unforgettable.  Lawn Fawn stitched rectangle dies.
Do Crafts, nested hearts die.  'Love' felt sticker.  Glass seed beads/ sequins.

I think you're amazing

Take one photo. 
Upload to 1) new tablet and 2) ancient laptop.
Wow! Gobsmacked.
Totally different brightness, contrast and colours.
Eek! Makes me wonder what you see.

Time to play with my camera.
Steep leaning curve this way .....

Big thanks to Debby Hughes at Lime Doodle
Her cards are always an inspiration,
but have you checked out her excellent photography tips.
I have a long way to go.

I'm back. What have I missed?

Hello.    It's been a while.
Things have been tough.
Long story.
This is my first card in 8 months!
I'm a little rusty.

Things I need to re-learn (quickly) -
How to post.
What size to cut my base cards.
How to get a sharp, stamped, die cut.
Which colour combos go together.
How to take a decent photo.
