Donna said...

These are both beautiful Debs, the image is too cute and I love the fibres and ribbon you've used.

Thank you so much for the lovely comment you left over at mine. I'm no expert when it comes to taking photos of my cards and every picture I take is a learning curve for me. What works at the moment is a homemade light tent made out of 4 pieces of cream card and I use to two daylight lamps positioned at the top, one at a slight angle. I'll try and remember to take a piccy of the setup next time I'm photographing a card :) Donna ♥ x
