Spring Time

 I love springtime.
Everything is turning green, the flowers are blooming
and my girl goes outside to enjoy the beautiful weather.

I am just beaming when I see these pictures.
  I was blessed to be the recipient of a $1000 gift card to Cardinal CameraLisa from The Long Road to China... and back had an awesome give away last week and I won! 
I have wanted to upgrade my camera for so long.  I have a good one, but it was still limited in the ISO capabilities.  I had prayed for God to find some way for me to be able to afford to upgrade my camera but just did not see any way I could. 
Then I read on Lisa’s blog about her new camera she had just gotten from Kurt at Cardinal Camera.  Lisa also stated that Kurt had generously offered to help Half the Sky.  This is a wonderful organization that helps orphans in China.  If you shop on-line and
 enter the discount code "HALFSKY" when you check out he will give 5% of your sale back to Half the Sky.  Even if you shop at one of their locations mention the code to whoever helps you.
Kurt had also offered a $1000 gift card to one of Lisa’s lucky readers…..
I was that lucky reader!!
I received my new Canon 60D camera yesterday and have been giddy ever since.  I still need a lot of practice, but I have already noticed a huge difference in my pictures.  I am LOVING it!  Thank you so much Lisa and Kurt!
I need to add that Lisa is an amazing person.  I have taken several photography classes from her and she goes out of her way to help you.  She is a wife, mother of three beautiful children, career woman, awesome photographer and now is starting a boutique!  I don’t know how she does it as just typing all that made me tired.
Please go visit her at The Long Road to China... and back.
Have a wonderful weekend!

Congratulations, Sandy! Your pictures look beautiful...but then I never noticed a deficit. :P I especially love the one with the drippy popsicle.
You know this means we're expecting regular updates since you'll need an opportunity to show off your new capabilities. :D
