Photo cards

This month the technique at Hero Arts blog involves using photos on cards.... particularly for the holidays.... but last month I made a couple of photo cards to say thank you to some people... one who lent me a bag to take away and one to thank the couple who house sat for us.... so I'll have to get organised and make some more....

I started by printing out on my computer a couple of the photos I took at Monet's garden in Giverny in France and then using Stazon added the sentiment.....
Thank you flowers

Thank you

I was very pleased with the photos and how they looked as cards.  I took so many photos of the flowers and the pond, that it is hard to choose which ones to use.

So now it's back to normal for me.... and getting a start on the Christmas cards.  I have stamping group this Saturday.... a marathon event this month... 10.00am till Midnight!!!!  Not sure I'll last that long as we are heading to Hamilton the next day ( a 2 hr drive) to visit our SIL Mary....  She is improving and coming along well.  Her tumours were benign but still affected her sight and balance.  Still a long ways to go.... but she is very positive.
Many thanks to all who have been praying for her...

Thanks for visiting.
