Another try

Remember when I showed you my Thanksgiving cards and said that I had another idea I was going to try? No? Oh well, it really wasn't that memorable of a statement anyway :)
But it did give me something to blog about today. Mainly I wasn't pleased with the last 2 cards because of the lack of color. This time I chose more fall like colors and used my own photos. I also went with a larger card because sometimes bigger is better.
So what do you think of these?

This first one isn't actually finished, or then again maybe it is. I was thinking about putting something in the blank space next to the picture but haven't decided what yet.

This one didn't need anything else.

  5. I'd frame the 2nd one and the first one could have some words on like Thinking of you or Just a note or something. Both are really nice!

  13. The first design would make for a great series of Duke cards. For you could replace the flower with a picture of him, and then use the blank space to convey his greeting or maybe a thought for the day. No, one can never get too much of Duke.

  15. Brilliant, Ann - bright colours do it every time! Maybe on the first one you could quill a matching red daisy to go in the space?

  18. They are beautiful and I don't know what size they actually are but for sure, more color is better.

  19. So pretty. Are you giving me a giant hint that you want to use a picture of me in a turkey suit in the blank one? I will have to contact my agent to see if this is a possibility.

  21. I love the first one Ann...I always love a card which you can personalise just a little bit more. They are both excellent though!!

  22. Pumpkin and I agree that the second one is awesome! Bubba seems to disagree. Something about a blank space that would be appropriate to write a little loving thoughts about Duke. So he chooses the first one for that reason.
