Summer Ice Cream

I am scheduling my post for today as I have an appointment with my ME Specialist so will be travelling with hubby to Bodmin Hospital, then all being well stopping off at the Herbery afterwards. I coloured this image a while ago but have only just got around to creating a card with it and I've not got a list of the Copic pens I used - sorry. This is one of Elisabeth Bell's older stamps from Sugar Nellie and I've used the sketch from the Stampavie and More blog for the card layout with a mix of digi papers from Cuddly Buddly. I've embellished with punched flowers and fronds, little butterflies and gems from my stash. My photos don't seem to be coming out very clear and I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong - I press the auto focus and get it to fix on the image, but often it's the embellishments that seem to be in focus and the image looks blured .. .. any ideas?

The theme on the Paper Sundaes blog is for childhood memories, what better than summer days eating ice cream with a four legged friend! Totally Stampalicious have an anything goes theme, as long as you stamp of course, and Stamp Something would like to see sassy circles along with the stamping.

Hopefully I'll be able to link up my card when I get home, and catch up with you too.

  7. Hope everything goes OK at appointment. In terms of foucssing - maybe the macro setting is kicking in even if it is on autofocus, I believe that some cameras have over-ride mechanisms when it comes to autofocussing.
    it might have something to do with the autocussing distance, but I'm learning with the camera too!!
