two from own photographs

Good morning bloggers, I hope you all enjoyed the beautiful day yesterday.
Today I am off to Wollaton Hall & Deer Park to meet up with a crafter from Docrafts. We have never met so I am looking forward to it very much :o)
Anyhow, on to my cards for today.


The first is from a photograph I took of a carnation at a friend's house many moons ago. I printed it out and cut to 5x5 for the background. For the centre I added flutterbies from other own photographs. The punched flowers and flutterbies were punched from the background photograph. Punches used are Martha Stewart, McGill and Woodware and this is my first use of the Marianne Doily die.


This one is a photograph of a cross between a Siberian Husky and wolf that I met with her owner when I was walking round the perimeter footpath of East Midlands Airport a couple of years ago. The owner very kindly gave me permission to take photographs of her and her dad. The paper was created by my good friend Pat fron the colours on the dog. Punches used for this one are Martha Stewart, SU and Marianne's doily die :O)
