This was the sunset last night. It had all the colors if you include the green of the trees and grasses which are still visible in the fading sunlight. It's so hard to try to edit this kind of picture. Ideally I would like to get rid of that halo of pink and have it blend more as it did in real life. But when I look at the computer screen, the intensity of the colors changes as I tilt my laptop screen forward and backward so I'm never really sure what others will be seeing on their computer. This was untouched with all it's pixels too. And even when I look at the preview screen, the intensity does change when I tilt the screen, so if it looks washed out, tilt your screen back or look at it from below because it definitely was not a pastel moment but one of vibrant intensity.
As I switch gears - Looking back as I was clearing off my camera card, I realized that I had not shared this card that I made for my blogging friend Sabrina. Her birthday was in April and I think I was waiting to make sure that she received it before I actually posted it. Well, I knew some time ago that she did receive it and I was so happy that she loved it. In actuality, she had sent me the Pig Brothers birdhouse stamp for my birthday and it's perfect for a bird lover AND a flying pig lover! I just had so much fun coloring that image. Then I went to town with my embossing folders and dies and even some more stamps to make the little scene to surround those bird houses. I like to think that the birds (or flying pigs) that take up residence there would be very happy.
Just thinking that I would love to send birthday cards to any of my followers, so if you do follow my blog (see that followers area over on the right) send me your birth date and your address and I'll put you on my card list.
Okay, on with the weekend activities. Hope you have a wonderful day!
