From Photos to Cards!

Do you ever wonder what you should do with all of those leftover pictures from last year's vacation? Or you take a pretty picture, say of a rainbow, now what are you going to do with it!

How about making some photo cards? They are easy and are so versatile. The recipient will be happy to get a card from you and you will have used that beautiful photo of the rainbown that you took. Think of it as recycling!!

Thats just what I did I made cards out of photos; from the rainbow to the pretty fall tree to the eagle that was sitting on top of the silo!
And you can too!! Just take a regular 8 1/2 x 11" sheet of cardstock, cut it in half so that you have 2 pieces, both will measure 4 1/4 x 5 1/2. Then fold them in half, maybe you a coordinating color under your photo and using two way tape (that you can buy just about anywhere) you have created a very pretty Birthday, Get Well, Sympathy, Thinking of You card; and it didn't cost much at all.
My thought for today: Happy are those who dream dreams and are ready to pay the price to make them come true.
Until next time, have a great day and get out there and make something!!
