Just the one ....

This is my card for this week's Sarah Kay Challenge
week 11,
which is a Trio of Papers

I love this image and it is the first time I have actually used it, but very probably not the last. For some reason, and I'm guessing it's the beret, I think it has a French feeling about it.
The 3 papers I used are by Printworks Collection - or so it says on the label - and I bought them years ago at a craft fair and didn't use them until earlier this year when I needed some blue and green paper. I coloured it with PMs and the old MSBP has been dragged out again. Yeahhhhhhh xx That gorgeous velvet ribbon is from my stash but I'm not sure where I got it from.


There may be another post if I get done what I need to get done. But if not, have a brill day and I hope the sun is shining for you like it is here cos it is a gorgeous warm Autumn day here in Chester xxxx

PS, that misty thing is still there but I promise you that this house and me have been choccie biscuit free zones today. Now before you think I have gone all virtuous and good, the reason for this is that I ate them all yesterday so there are none left for me to scoff - oh what a porker.

Just call me Fat Pie Phillips lol xxx

And I did wipe the lens so maybe it is something to do with the camera, like that depth of field malarky that I hear photographers talking about and about which I nod in a knowing fashion when they tell me about it, but which in reality I have not the first clue about. And F stops, what on God's green earth is an F stop????

Answers on a postcard peeerrlease xxxxx

oh wow, love this hunny, it is gorgeous. By the way, prepare to be amazed by my sheer brilliance and knowledge of all things confusing to your wee pink piggy brain ...... drumroll please ....... F-stop is the focal length divided by the diameter of the lens!! Woohoo, do I win a prize??? Lol, yes .... google provided the answer but now you know!!
