Wondrous Wednesday Thinking of You

Happy Wondrous Wednesday!

Hope you are having a wonderful day! Our "W" word of the day is:
walleteer meaning one who carries a wallet  
I know, how did I miss that one for FATHER's DAY?!?!?
I guess it wasn't meant to be :-)
better late than never!


Do you love to use the photos that you take and add them to your cards? I know that I do.  Sometimes you capture that moment that is just perfect (or at least in your own mind anyway - lol)... This is one of those cards... This is a picture that goes back several years, my dad, son, and I were going for a walk and he kept trying to grab the flowers that I was trying to photograph... I happened to catch this picture and just loved it (ok, it is probably because every time I see it I think of that day and just being able to spend some time with my dad and my son - he will never be that young again and those moments are so fleeting)

I have made this card many times and have also used different sentiments, unfortunately I don't always take pictures of my creations and this was the only one I could find (you see, I don't have my pictures organized and cross linked by subject - only by date - lol)

This is a very simple card (yeah, I know... just forget for a moment the background I actually used, and use the photos as a reference only)
  • Print the photo to a full 4x6
  • Crop it so that the hand is the focal point
  • Mat and mount on the card
  • I then took one of the scraps from the cropping and used that on the card where I then attached the sentiment
  • In this case it was "Thinking Of You"
As I said, I've used it for Sympathy, Get Well, and Thank You cards as well.

Why not give this a try?  If you would like to use the photo I have used, let me know and I will update this post with a link to the pic :-)

The mosaic background frame matches so well with your photo. Yes its true I also often get so involved in a project that I forget to take photos!

That picture is great for a card even if it had no memories riding on it -but the memories make it outstanding.

Hugs,

That is a really nice card. I've been wanting to make some cards using my photos but I just never seem to find the time.
