Precious Photo card

Did I get a lot done today ... wow ... and I am not even tired!! Got lots of things that NEEDED to get done this morning and early afternoon and then when it started to rain I sat down and got to work making cards. Yes, I make cards for a living and I am running low so I NEEDED to get more made for the store and for my Open Markets. Then this evening I got a lot of laundry done and put away.

I looked though some of my pictures I had developed and decided to use some of them for my cards. This one I decided to cut the flower out from it's background and it really is a striking on the card that way. I added a scored background with my Scor-pal and some words from Stamping Sensations and a little ribbon and it looked done. It was too easy ... so I decided to make a few more like this one and will be showing you them for the next few days.

Now for a bit of good news .... the tree in my backyard that fell about a month ago finally got cut up and taken away and I am so pleased with how it will be used. The guy who cut it did not charge me much if he could take the wood to use it for his boy scout troop's campfires. It makes me feel so good to know that is what it is going for. Also, that it did not cost me that much to get taken care of either is good news.

Beautiful card! I love the flower cut out like that. I'm glad the wood went to the boyscout troop too. What a great way to save money and recycle for a good cause.
