True Talent Tuesday-delayed

Good morning all! Unfortunately there will be no True Talent Tuesday today. The person I contacted about this did not get back to me and being the goof I am, I didn't have a back up!! So, next week expect a FANTASTIC paper crafter!!!

I completely forgot to share yesterday that I got a new lens for my camera!!! I absolutely love it!!!!! It's a Canon 50mm f/1.8. Pretty much it's a portrait lens. The f stop is low so you can get more of a blurry background so the focus goes more to your subject. Here are a pic taken with it.

This was a toad that Jolee caught and carried around for a while. I swear she is such a tomboy, and I love it! She has caught a toad 3 days in a row now.

This card is one I made Kraftin' Kimmie's Korner but I completely forgot to upload it yesterday. They were 'due' last night at midnight. The challenge was to use pastels and black. I like how this turned out and it's nice to have a card with no sentiment on the front so I can use it for whatever I need at the moment.

  • Happy Harmony stamp set
  • Cuttlebug Swirls EF
  • Bashful Blue, Black CS
  • Marvy mega scalloped circle punch
  • Marvy Super Jumbo circle punch
  • eyelets (and Cropadile)
  • ribbon, ZIG markers, pop dots
Well, I need to get busy on some SCS challenges and Amy's Sunday Sketch! I'm fallin' behind!!! Be back later!

I love the look of this card! The colors are awesome! I also am jealous of that totally cool lense! I just got a new Nikon N40 which I love....wonder if I can convince hubby to buy me a portrait or macro lense?mmmm....
The picture is awesome!

oh,you're gonna love that lense! I have one too and it's so much fun! Can't wait to see more of what you do with it! Have a good day!

Isn't it funny how we all sort of gravitate towards the same hobbies...stamping, papercrafting, and photography. I am loving my new lense...I just think the pic you took is wonderful.

That is a great picture of the toad, and I love your card!! The BBlue and Black looks so lovely together...and I'm not getting rid of that stamp set yet either. ;)
