Many thanks

I think I need to get out my tripod my pics are always wonky.

time for scrap -  challenge 11 - Idioms with animal names .

Sheep are usually favourite as there are many greetings which use the word EWE but I chose this cute cow . I could have also gone with ' happy birthday to MOO ' or to incorporate the little bee as well ' haBEE birthday to MOO'. The background is very very thin crepe paper and to be honest I did think it was going to tear as I cut it with scissors ( craft knife just chewed it up ) . I went straight to the felt tip pens for this one.

Enjoy your weekend.

a bit of sparkle

The sun coming through the window on the bottom pic caught the sparkle just as I clicked away.

 I used an aperture card as a base and used  sequin waste which I sponged over to make the background. Washi tape and a punched heart add extra interest to my simple coffee cup card.The sentiment I printed out on thick card so it is slightly raised up.

Happy Tuesday - I'm off to clean the oven ( my favourite job ) as if . My laundry is blowing in the breeze and later I will make lasagne  and salad for dinner .

A bit chic in purple

I've been using the same camera to take my pics for quite a few years now and never bothered to read the instruction manual  , I try not to touch any of the buttons. For some reason the first few pics were a bit blurred and I wondered if I had  accidentally pressed the settings button . As you can see from the above I tried a few settings with very different results .
The top picture has picked up way too much sparkle ,the grey paper has barely a shimmer . The colour of the dress in the top picture is exactly right but the dark center of the flower should be the same shade as the purple washi tape frame.
The bottom picture has the right grey background and whilst the washi tape and the flower center match the dress is not the right colour purple.
