Some Flower Fun

The sun was shining in the window....
the amaryllis was basking in it's glow....

I snapped about 50 photos.
Then sat at my computer
and had some fun!

All done using Photoscape
and it's different tools and filters.
Don't you love it when you can
have hours of fun and create
wonderful art for free???

I'm thinking I should make 
some winter note cards
with these images of our amaryllis!
Which is your favorite?

Spread a little kindness today,

I'm linking this post to Tootsie Time's 
Flaunt Your Flower Friday.  I'm only a day late, oh well!
Check out some other gardener's post and have some fun.

I like the idea of using our own photos for note cards and do that very thing myself. Store bought are so expensive and hand made are fun to craft.
The first photo is the one I like for a note card, I'll have to play in PhotoScape too.

I like the first one! I used to make note cards with flower pictures all the time and I bought the envelopes from Wal Mart.

There's nothing more flashy and gorgeous in wintertime than a big blooming amaryllis, and yours is sure a perfect example!
Fabulous -- I love that third incarnation -- it would make a grand card.

Morning, they are all great pictures but I think my favourite is the first one the mirror image. I love playing with my photographs as you will see by my mosaic on Monday!! It is great that they programmes are available free, there isn't much free in life!!

Enjoy the rest of the weekend and I hope your weather has improved. Jackie in Surrey, UK.
