Mixed post

Hi everyone, well after 5 months I have had my hair cut today, it was January when I had it cut at the hairdresser, they went into lockdown as I was due a cut! (hubby had taken an inch off the back though.) It was all done so well, with a mask given, although I had my own, my temperature taken and a hand sanitiser for me to use too. I think she is a great stylist, but I always wash it as soon as I am home, as I don't like how she, or any hairdresser, styles my hair after a cut. Fussy so and so aren't I?

 On to why you are here! after doing my comments and emails, I thought I would just browse my files. I have seen quite a few digital stamps and paper used recently and as I didn't feel like doing much on a very wet afternoon I decided to see what files I had, (forgotten about!) There were a LOT! 

I came across this lovely watercolour pineapple and background paper, I decided to use them and this is the resulting card. I added them to a shape in my Silhouette Design page and added a digital die to the centre, then after cutting them all out, I added them to a card and also the sentiment. The centre pineapple is layered 3 times. I wanted to print and cut the image, and also to cut it out on one page of paper, it took me longer to adjust them to fit on the page that to design it! LOL
pineapple and paper - Creativefabrika
digital die - Silhouette #14365
Nuvo Drops - Tonic 
sparkle pen - Spectrum Noir 

Yesterday morning I looked up into the sky and saw a plane trail, but not only that it had a shadow! There was another trail not far away but that had no shadow, I had to take a photo of it. It's like I did a shadow in Photoshop, (I didn't), it was originally on the right of the trail but gradually moved to to the left of it. It was a  duunnn dunnn... duuuunnnn duun... duuunnnnnnnn dun dun dun dun dun dun dun dun dun dun dunnnnnnnnnnn dunnnn. moment!

This is how it started

A closeup of it

This is where it had moved to the left and was still a trail,
 where the original had almost disappeared! 
The smaller trail had also nearly disappeared.

EDIT - After Shirley's comment I went to Google and found this explanation, seems it's not common, so was thrilled to get a photo of it. 

Keep safe everyone.

Wow, so gorgeous! I love the fruit card and your plane trail is pretty cool.
You are so much like me! I always wash and style my hair after getting home from the hairdresser. I had gone quite a while with gray roots and longish hair. So I colored my own, which did not turn out as well as the hairdresser. After two washings, the roots were there again! And I took a pair of scissors and just started cutting all the way around my head. It turned out pretty good considering I did not know what I was doing. Since then I have had my hair done a few times and go again Wednesday. Hopefully, we won't be in lockdown by then.

Love the pineapples Faith, great card. Going to the hairdressers last Thursday was the highlight of my week, I told her if we go in to lockdown again I’m leaving home and moving in with her - can’t wait that long again !! Never seen a plane trail like that, I googled it and I think it may be a contrail xx

Lovely card, Faith. I love pineapples, actual pineapples to eat and pineapple images. :-D
What incredible photographs of the con trails! I've never seen anything like it in the sky although I have seen shadows on the ground of a con trail from the window of a plane in which I was flying. It took a bit to figure out what the dark line was on the ground that seemed to keep pace with the airplane which had to be flying at more than 200 mph. :-D

Beautiful work Faith! I appreciate pineapples so much more now (not living in Hawaii) than when I did (kids don't usually appreciate fruit and botanicals). They touch my heart! You've reminded me I need to make hair appointments for my daughter and I~I look savage!

Beautifully designed card, love the pineapple theme, such a lovely summer look. Amazing photos of the jet stream, Kate x x

Glad you got a good haircut finally and I used to wash my hair and re-style it too after coming home from getting a haircut! LOL Great pineapple card with those pretty images and colors! Your photography skills for the skies are amazing too. I've questioned all the trails in the skies for some time and there's never been a logical explanation for them to my knowledge, but this shadow effect is a first even for me! You did good!!

Brenda said...

Ha, I need a hair cut too Faith! Mine hasn't been cut since last Sept and I was going to make an appointment to get it cut when Covid hit and we shut down. Still haven't gotten one, so it is more than half way down my back. Yes, I NEED a haircut! I don't let my gal dry my hair because I don't like the way she styles it either. All other hair stylist could work with my hair, but not this gal. So I just come home with it wet and style it myself. So no, not fussy because I'm the same way! lol I am loving your pineapple card! The watercolor digit paper is fabulous and I love how you took one pineapple and made it into a digital die. Love that frame too, it pulls the eye in to the center on that beautiful pineapple. Wow, I've never seen a jet trail with a shadow before Faith! Those are great photo's of it! I figured it has to not be common because I've never seen one before and how cool that you got a photo of it! It's very interesting to say the least! I will have to read up on it. Hugs, Brenda
