My first standup card
Tis my sister's birthday and I made my very first standup card! I figured out that the reason I was having so much trouble with the photography was the paper I was coloring on - I love that paper but it has a sparkle to it and really affects the camera - it was an absolute no-no to use a flash. I had a good time making this card. I am actually fairly new to this scrapbooking/card making such as it is now. When I was a kid, I made cards because I didn't want to waste my money on them instead of the gifts! Now it probably costs as much to make the cards (if not more) than to go buy them! But what fun! I am approaching about 9 months since I began and loving every minute! Actually, it gets better each time I work on something! Hugs to you all, Barb F just entered it in Simon Says Challenge for this week.
Nearing 70, a great grandmother and just now turning into a crafter, I found that it is fun to share my scrapbooking type crafts with others. I am always organizing even though I am pretty good about putting things away after I use them. Guess that will be my epitaph, she was an organizer and a scrapbooker/cardmaker.
