Tried out my new camera today!

You have to play with new toys, don't you? And as neither my glitterpot order arrived today nor my eagerly awaited magnolia order it had to be the camera! It's a Canon EOS 20D and I love it already!
The first picture I took was of my little boy Jacob... but see for yourself

Also did the (late) entry for last weeks Magnolia challenge on Do Crafts... It is a wallet card I made with watercoloured images and card and paper from my ever increasing stash. 
Basecard and pink mat are papermill card and the white is hammered cardstock from them as well. The backing paper is Papermania from the Exquisite range. The flowers are prima and brads Papermania. The closure is a basic grey magnetic snap which is quite neat, but not cool enough to deserve its own picture!
The challenge was to use pink, 3 flowers and brads. I think I ticked all boxes, although I would have liked to leave the flowers out... too late!
