The good news is that my dear Hb has decided to give me my birthday present early.....my new camera arrived on Friday and I have been playing with it over the weekend.....it needs some getting used to but boy is it an improvement!! Here is a sneak peak of few quick practice shots....
I took this of dear Billy having a snooze. I can really get great close ups now..
Here is another, of the flowers on the table...
Yes my beloved daffadowndillies!
and lastly one to show all that was left of the cake by the time my new camera arrived.....
The photos at the end of this post had been put on the computer before my old camera broke.
I also forgot to show you the card I made for Matt's birthday...
Once again I commissioned the talented Vita to paint me a special ACEO that can then be framed or used as a special bookmark. Matt has always love giraffes since he was tiny. He loves giraffes like I love pigs! A friend of mine bought him a yellow velour giraffe on the day he was born which became Matt's special soft toy...everyone has one! His was called Yellow Horsie and he is still around in Matt's room if you look closely ;0)
I used this delightful painting for the focal of the card
I chose some bold backing papers, one with numbers the other with balloons to create a really bold colourful card.
He was delighted with it.
I had also taken a few photos of some other cards I made recently and I thought now would be a good opportunity to share them.
I bought some very beautiful limited edition cat prints which I used as keepsakes for Matt's girlfriend's card last October....
And this one below was for a friend's birthday in December.
As you can guess they are real cat fans and loved these images.
So there we are, another birthday over for my Boy, it was great one. Cheers to Matt!
I will now start to have more of a play with my camera and I look forward to sharing some new photos with you all.
Bye for now,
