Harvest Home, StampinB, Kaboodle Doodles, The Stamp Man
It's another challenge for the Stampin B's Design Team and the challenge is to use Fall colors..rusts, browns, golds, etc. The colors are beginning to change in my part of the southern U.S. but not quite there yet. Actually, we need some rain to get all the splendid Fall colors we want. It is very dry here and I am really tired of watering. Ugh!
My card is for two other challenges: Kaboodle Doodles #41- Color Challenge to use the colors you see around you and use something that celebrates that color. Fall is all around and getting better everyday.
Below is a photo of some of the Fall colors I see around my area. The bottom one is a crape myrtle in my yard. I have 4 of those down my driveway and they look as if they are on fire when the sun shines on them. The other two are some I see when I drive around my city. This pic was taken last year as they're not quite there yet this year. But the inspiration is there for my card.
The Stamp Man Challenge Blog #7 - Autumn
I went out yesterday and bought a new camera. Of course, the one I bought was not in stock and I am driving two hours tonight to get it. I didn't want to wait a week for it to arrive. I'm really excited about it and will now have to fill my time learning to use it. It is a Nikon D90 SLR. I think there will be more to learn about it than my Sony Cybershot I am using now. Once I get the hang of it, I think I'll be fine. I am hoping it will be good for my cards, nature photos, sweet babies, ..love to take photos of birds, too. Wish me luck!
