Thanks Teacher.



HUGE apologies for the large gap between posts! There were a couple of reasons for my absence.
1. Finally the nice weather is here and I've been spending my afternoons outside, rather than inside on my computer.
2. I often feel irritated with my photography skills and can't stand the pics of my cards! It's really annoying to make a card that I'm happy about and ruin it in a click of a camera :)
   I've worked out a new location and lighting for my photographing and I think it helps but the left side of all my pics are still looking blurry. I can see a small hair in the lens and believe that is the cause but it's INSIDE the glass and have no idea how I would ever get it out!

I'm done acting like a cry-baby. Whining more than my 6 year olds :)  Other than that everything else is great! I've begun geocaching, which I've grown to LOVE and the kids really enjoy it too. There are tons of walking trails around here and we've found some great, inventive caches.

This is a card I made to thank a teacher.

Adorably cute card! Love your paper pieced background! As for the first photo, I see the blurry or bokeh on the right side and that would be because your card is sitting at a sharp angle so that the front is in focus but the part farther away from you is blurry. Photographers seek that in some pics to blur out the background or to make the subject stand out. If you turn your card and have most of it on the same "plane" it should all be in better focus. As for the hair in the lens, maybe someone at a camera shop could clean it for you? I know it is frustrating to work so hard on a project and the photo does not show it. But your card is fabulous and I want to thank you for sharing it with us at Cards in Envy. Maybe you didn't want help regarding your pic but I couldn't help myself as you posted it bothered you so please forgive me if this is too much of a comment. :)
