Hope that you are all enjoying your weekend. I have received 3 emails lately, asking me why I never post cards that have been published on my blog. Well, I can only say "duh". I just haven't thought to do so! So, without further ado, or jabber, here are the cards that were in the July issue of CardMaker.

About the photo cards.....
I am absolutely NOT a photograper, so when the submission call came out for photo cards, I was bummed. What to do, what to do? Then it hit me that our DD is a fabulous photographer! She has had some of her works published, and loves to take photos. The photo on these cards was taken by her. She's been lucky enough to have worked in both the Phipps and Brooklyn Botanical Gardens, where beautiful flowers are in abundance, and this was just one example.
I had originally submitted the blue card, with the black and white photo, and the editors asked me to make a sepia, and a full color card as well, so that is what you see here.
Also in this issue was a cheerful birthday card on page 39. This call was for a rainbow color scheme. Unfortunately, it appears that I forgot to save a photo! Tee hee...
Enjoy your weekend, and thanks so much for stopping by!
