When you sit down to make a card does it take you forever? Do you have all your stamps out and all kinds of paper and you keep thinking about it? Well, today was not one of those days for me! I saw this fun challenge over at Splitcoaststampers to create a Clean and Simple (CAS) card with these colors…(Whisper White, Poppy Parade, Peach Parfait and Daffodil Delight), and then I was done.
Okay, so I thought about it, grabbed my paper and supplies in about 5 minutes and then put this quick and simple card together in about 2 minutes. It took me more time to photograph it then to put it together. The sun was too bright….okay, I know all of you that are living in the middle of a snowy heap and gray skies are not happy with me saying that, but it’s true. Have you ever had a problem taking a photo in bright direct sunlight. It washes a lot of the color away…oh the trials and tribulations of living in a warmer climate, I guess, LOL!
Then, this guy couldn’t keep his nose away from the card while I was trying to photograph it. I think it looks like he is saying “Who Me?” Do you have a pet that must “touch” your pieces of art when you are busy photographing them? If I look back at some of my old photos, I’m sure I could find a couple puppy noses.
