Warm Winter Cocoa

My photography lessons (with the hubby) continue. I now realize, it is not as simple as point, click and done. My husband has been very good repeating those key things I should remember (ISO, aperture, shutter speed, light, external flashes............). I really am trying to get what all these things mean. As long as he doesn't mess with the settings on the camera (in between my cards) all would be fine.

Thank you again to my dear husband for this week's lesson: 
  • I must remember to turn the external flash on before taking a picture,
  • If the picture is too dark, turn that dial "thingy" to a lower number and try again and,
  • The flash will turn off if I take too long trying to set up my picture! 

Now onto my card! This is a super cute image from Sassy Cheryl called "Warm Winter Cocoa". I fell in love with this image the moment I saw it.

Although I didn't finish the card in time, the layout of this card is based on the Mojo Monday sketch # 321. 

The card is coloured with Copic markers.
