Continuing the Theme

What a day, it snowed from 0600 this morning till around 1500 this afternoon them it turned to rain.  I took the dogs out for their last walk and it is fair but water lying all over the place with the melting snow. Glad we are not on a flood plane as the water has nowhere to go.  At least the forecast for the next few days is promising, just have to wait and see.  The dogs this morning love running in the new snow.  If they find a patch which has not been walked on they have to make their mark and run all over it, noses down like shovels.  I have the task of drying them when we get home but it is great to see them enjoying it.

This is the second in my series of cards and I just love this one.  My sister wanted a card for one of her work mates who is retiring this week and wanted something different from the normal run of the mill cards so this is what I came up with.  I had to take the photographs out in the conservatory to get some light to avoid reflection and these are the best of the bunch sorry about the background I forgot to put something behind them to make the photo stand out.

Same as last post except the papers were printed from

Image from LOTV which was already coloured
Sentiment done on PC

I really must take a course in photography in order to do my cards justice.  I am so eager to get them snapped that it is not until I download them to my Blog that I see where I have gone wrong especially the backgrounds.  Hope you like my effort tonight, one more to go and then I will have to try something different.
Well I hope you are all well and no major problems.  Just take care and wrap up warm.
Big Hugs.
