Happy Birthday Todd....

Mike's brother, Todd will be celebrating his 40th birthday on July 6th. Since we live so far away I have to plan ahead so cards/gifts get to our family on their special day. Here is the card I made for Todd. I had some cardstock laying on my table and thought the color combo looked pretty good I decided to go with it. I was pretty happy with the end result...a guy card that came together pretty fast.

Supplies used (All SU!): It's Your Birthday/Let's Party (retired) stamp sets; Wild Wasabi/Soft Sky/Blue Bayou/Whisper White cardstock; Wild Wasabi/Blue Bayou ink; square punches; double stitched wasabi ribbon

I was able to read through my lesson in my Oh Shoot class yesterday...and all I can say is "whoa" my brain is definitely going to be stretched! Luckily we are having a class chat tomorrow night, so I can ask some questions. We are learning about shutter speed, and I think I have the fast shutter speed down...cannot seem to get the right effect with the slow shutter speed. Ashley said she would be my model today (isn't she nice?). I need someone to run or jump, so I can catch the motion. So I thought I would practice last night (so I know what I am doing when I have my model). Here is one of my pictures with a low shutter didn't turn out the way I thought, but it was still kinda cool;D

And this is what my craft table looks like these days. Can you believe it took me about 2o minutes to figure out how to change my lens? Once I got it, it was pretty easy...I was just afraid of breaking something.
Enjoy your day and thanks for visiting my blog!
