Happy Valentine's Day, Jim!

 
This is the Valentine's Day card that I made for my hubby, Jim. I recently got this stamp and I love it, especially the "Kiss Me You Fool" sentiment, Jim will get a kick out of that, I'm sure!  :)

I just wish I had an easier time taking a picture of it, though. Because of the photostamp, after several attempts with different camera settings and in different lighting, I still couldn't get a good picture.  So, I opted to just use my scanner instead. Arg...I need to take a photography course! lol :)

This is a little container of yummy goodness for Jim for Valentine's Day.   Chocolate covered cashews and chocolate covered cherries.  Afterall, what's Valentine's Day, without a little chocolate! 

Thanks for stoppin' by!  :)

I have pretty good success photographing my cards with my point and shoot with a few things in mind

1. As much natural light as possible... I prefer to take photos outside and if I can't, it's in my sunniest window
2. Use the MACRO setting on your camera (looks like a tulip)
3. Don't use a flash
