Fast Friday Card :: Enjoy Everyday Enjoy Life



Hey everyone! TGIF! I've had a busy week moving and organizing my studio and it is still not finished, but hopefully with some time this weekend, I can get a lot more completed. Today's card is SUPER FAST! I ran out of steam last night after working on another card, so I had no choice but to make it really quick and easy. I also practiced on my camera a bit, taking tips learned from Lisa Spangler's Scribble This challenge. Since I did not have time to customize my white balance for the picture, I did use an auto white balance setting in the manual mode! That is a big step for me to get out of an automatic macro (flower) setting! Since my pictures were a bit blown out (due to over-brightness), I asked Mac what to do about it. So, he suggested I adjust the apeture setting. It worked a lot better! :) The card is cream, but the brightness is still there. Do you think the photo turned out good or a little too bright still?

As for the studio update, I did add a major element to the room, but I can't share it just yet. I'll reveal it soon! Sorry folks, no sneak peeks on this hot item!

I appreciate your comments and thanks for stopping by! Have a great weekend!

This is great Ashley! I find it difficult sometimes to maintain the brightness of a card w/out washing out the cream color - so great job!

Have a great weekend!
