For my Sweet Hubby


Morning gang ;0) If you read yesterdays post you will know that  hubby and I have our Anniversary on Thursday, and we are still very much in love Aah lol. So with the next event on the crafty calender being Valentines I thought I would use this theme to create a card for hubby and fit a few challenges in while I'm at it lol. Over at Studio L3 Linda is having fun again each Monday with Tim's Book and this week it's rusty grunge. I really do like this technique. I am also playing along with GSC I am using Petra's idea of scraps. And lastly  Artistic Stamper who want to see wings.


The lights was so poor this morning despite us having more snow in the NW of UK today. Here you can see a wee bit better the details of the rusty grunge key which I give to my hubby who used it to set my heart free to love him for all eternity *swoon* the heart is slightly raised over the grungy alcohol inked cage. The wings and heart are made form scraps as well as the obvious vintage music paper. I hope your NY is going as planned and your all well, I'll be popping round a few blogs today to see what you have all been up to. Love Dawn xx

Hi Dawn,

I thought I left a message to you earlier, but I didn't send it. I hope I remember to hit send this time.

My "macro" is my tulip setting on a very poor camera. The camera was actually made to make videos, not stills, so it is challenged in many ways. It is not a DSLR, just a point and shoot Kodak Zi6. It looks more like a cell phone than a camera, but it's only a camera.

The camera seems to do much better on the "macro," or tulip setting than the normal setting. I hope that explains what I did. Sorry if you thought I had some good answers, because I have none. It's a bad camera with one good setting (grin). Thanks for asking.

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

I forgot to mention how much I like that card for your upcoming anniversary. I really love this style.
