Good morning bloggers on this gorgeous start to the day. Wall to wall blue here although a tad nippy. I cannot believe it is nearly a week since I last posted, hopefully I will be able to catch up on your blogs over the next day or two.
I have had a wonderful birthday long weekend, what a shame they have to come to an end! I spent Thursday with my cousin and we went out and had a lovely lunch. On Friday I went out and bought myself a birthday present. My old compact camera has given me brilliant service for 5 years, but I have now retired it because I wanted something smaller and more up to date. So, I replaced my Nikon Coolpix 1 (6.5 megapixels) with a Nikon Coolpix S3100(14 megapixels) which is bright redLOL. My main camera is still my beloved Nikon D40 DSLR but it isn't always convenient to carry such a big camera around.
Here they are, the old and the new, for size comparison. I can get the new one in my handbag. I have taken over 20,000 photographs (I promise you I am not exaggerating) with the old and I hope to take at least that many with the new :o)
Onto my card, made yesterday at our wonderful craft get together. I did make others but haven't taken their pics yet.
This is for our hostess's son and DiL on the birth of their gorgeous new granddaughter on Saturday. I used my new Marianne die which my wonderful friends gave me. I couldn't make up my mind in the shop whether to buy it or not, and when we got back to the house they had bought it for me. Aren't friends just the greatest people?
Talking about craftshops, I bought myself two sets of Grand Nesties with my birthday money so now I have to go out and buy a Grand Calibur LOL.
Sorry, I should have warned you it was going to be a long post :o)
