Good photography day outside … NO!

Hi there …

It’s a terribly muggy hot day today in MN – perfectly windless with a bright sunshine! What a great day to take photos of my cards. Yet when I tried going out to take a card photo on my deck, some non-existent wind keeps blowing my card over. It’s just too frustrating!

Perhaps I will not be waiting till it’s winter in MN to get my lightbox after all.

Well, here is the card I tried photographing outside to no avail … I did enjoy making the card!

The little children dancing image from Hero Arts is just too happy – it’s called “Dancing with Flowers” and I just love these patterned papers from the new My Mind’s Eye Stella Rose Collection.

And for those who know me, you will know I can’t stop at 1 card. So I made another version of this card using distressed ink instead of pattered paper just to see how it would turn out. I’m not really sure which one I like better, so please give me your feedback. The sentiment was from Impression Obsession Sentiments II. I love how versatile that sentiment set is.

I hope you are having a “dancing in the flowers” kind-a day.
