its about time but I think I finally got it...

Good morning everyone, I hope your all well and happy and have a wonderful day planned...I know your probably fed up with the camera saga, nearly as much as me, but there was sun yesterday morning and I ran around like a loony in my fluffy dressing gown before it disappeared again and managed to take some photos and by gum I think I cracked it, I was so chuffed with the photos I got, I even replaced the ones below made with the Manger, isn't it amazing what a bit of sun does to your colours...I was downloading them and was having a good look at my camera and noticed these photos were taken on the auto setting...so there you go all that faffing about with different setting, shutter speeds etc and all I needed was to put it on Auto and get a bit of sun lol...do me a favour if you have a sec scroll down and see the new photos on the Manger card below and these and let me know if you think I should stop faffing with the camera and leave well alone, because you know what I'm like I will niggle away at it until the cows come home lol...we had a fab day out yesterday I got loads more ticked on my list, we have a fab lunch and I even managed to get a late appointment to have my hair cut...I have never seen anyone look as bored as Phil did in the hairdressers, the poor man even resorted to reading the hair magazines...but then its his own fault I told him to do what he wanted while I was there but he would insist on waiting for me, maybe he thought I was going to talk about him lol...onto my card for today, how amazing is this stunning new Whimsy Wee Silver Fairy stamp I bought from Bunny Zoe's Crafts...I love her wings they are stunning, such a perfect clear crisp image too as all Whimsy stamps are, as soon as I saw her I knew I had to buy her...I coloured this beauty with distress inks and just to make up for yesterdays no glitter day I went ott with the glitter here but come on now shes a fairy and deserves a load of glitter doesn't she, I teamed her up with more of the Kaisercraft Velvet Ensemble papers, this is gorgeous and the black on it really is velvet...beautifully tactile, I finished with some punched leaves, a white bias binding bow and some more of these stunning new Prima gold tipped roses, I so wish I had bought more of these at the Kings Hall, the fabulous sketch is from Mojo Monday and I'm also entering this for the DYSU challenge...we are having Sunday lunch with our Daughter and her partner today which I am so looking forward too (well Phil does cook it and its so yummy too), whatever your up to I hope you have a brilliant one

p.s. see why I don't like using red, I just noticed the glitter glue must have touched the red as there's a bit that has spread...oops

Gorgeous as ever Mina, glad the camera is sorted out, mine is on 'simples' too...just auto! Ruby x

June Nelson said...

Stunning Mina, and if youuse auto and set it to super macro you can get more detail as it crisps it up, thats how I use my bridging camera although your photos look perfect to me!!! xxx

Linda said...

Another beautiful one. I love the way you did the seam binding bow and flowers. Both pictures are clear and crisp. I would just use auto and not worry with it. Set it and forget it! :) Hugs, Linda

Liz's creative corner said...

Hi Mina awesome card, I have this image though not used her yet lol,

I recently bought a camera and the man in the shop said it's best to put it on auto and move closer to the image if you want a close up, the man has worked with cameras for years and knows his stuff, so no problems leaving it on that lol, hugs Liz xx
