Wishing you Better Soon
My last uploaded photo of a Japanese Anemone in my garden seemed popular so, as I'd cropped it with the flower towards the top left, I thought I'd add a greeting in Photoshop at the bottom so I that I could make some cards to sell at my church in aid of charity.

The possibilities are endless! Watch this space.

NB I printed the photos 6-up on an A4 sheet of semigloss photo paper and I added six tiny thumbnails in the unused space. I'm sticking a tiny thumbnail picture on the back of each envelope so the recipient gets a sneak peak of what's inside!

How lovely to make this out of that wonderful picture you took!...I love the idea of the tiny thumbnails on the envelopes..great idea!
Just been reading on Light writer Bobs page about your son not watering..I remember coming back after a 2 week holiday to a scene of death and devastation when my girls had not watered..I was so upset..lost a good few plants that year..I hope your are not so bad and recover..

Thanks, Gillie! It was just the tubs on the patio that I'd forgotten to ask him to water. Not his fault at all, he would have done it if I'd asked him. The break in Cambridge (for a wedding) with a couple of days either side was magic, and it was worth a few dead flowers!

Thank you, Joan! However I'd like to make it clear that the money goes to charities supported by our church, not to the church itself. We major on giving money away, not asking for money!

Great idea to make use of spare space on the paper and to stick them on the envelopes. And the cards are so nicely produced. Excellent!
