Yes, I am addicted to “playing” with images, whether there are my own photos, or images in the public domain. This is especially true when I can personalize a card to mark an event like a birthday. It’s fun and rewarding. And, what’s more, with every creation, I learn new skills.
Off and on over the past year or so, I have watched bits and pieces of Schitt’s Creek, but have never gone out of my way to view it regularly. Just yesterday, though, I was mesmerized by several back to back episodes, and have concluded that this is a brilliant production, featuring extremely talented actors.
Now that we are supposed to spend more time at home, I will maybe find time to check out what I’ve missed — on the smaller screen.
Of course, I added some hearts, some x’s and o’s, and “Mom!” and then drew a leprechaun inside — just for fun — for Mom!
Yes, Carley loves Gerbera daisies.
And yes, . . . she is very cheerful.
‘Nuff said. 🙂
Metaphors abound with this expression, . . .
but, I’m using it today to mean taking a break–today I will visit my friend.
Here’s a fun little song by Taj Mahal with a hint at another meaning. 🙂
We hear it often, “No, thank you; I really don’t need anything for Mother’s Day. I have everything I could wish for.”
Caring and sociable people who are flexible, and willing to dedicate time and energy to help others, and even just to be with them, must learn to respect their own limits. Before they reach these limits.
Hmmm. You have the sneaking suspicion that you’ve seen this image before.
Those rolling snow drifts, the long shadows, and those silly women all look familiar. Hmmm, maybe you’re right.
Spring! Yeah! Bring it on!
Turning an interesting old illustration into a greeting card, requires a few steps, including from the very beginning, research on copyrights and “Permission to Use.”
With the legalities taken care of, we then imagine how we would like to use the selection in an original or personal way that says Audities’ Cards.
Browsing through our photos, we find an image that could be combined with the illustration to create an interesting or humorous message.
Then, through patience and the magic of photo editing, we combine the two photos to create the scene.
Finally, we work on the finishing touches to the image, and add the overlays and text to complete the greeting.
Now, surely you agree: that’s fun!
Perhaps it will help keep discouragement at bay.
