More variations on a theme

Good morning Bloggers. I haven't opened the curtains yet so don't know what it's like out there! I hope all is well with everyone, and if not then I hope it soon will be.
For my cards today I have used a photograph of a teazel that I took in my daughter's garden a few years ago.






All very simple cards. All are cut with Nesties and Xcut Nesties and matted onto either mirri or pearlised card. Border on the last one punched with Martha Stewart punch, a couple of ribbon and cord scraps from stash and Bob's yer Uncle, job done. Oooooooooooooooooops! Nearly forgot the greetings. Merry Christmas is from a Woodware word set and season's greetings is from a Peachy Keen set, I think :o)

I shouldn't be amazed anymore with your beautiful photos because they are all so pretty, then how can they get prettier. Your photos and the cards you made with them are truly beautiful and amazing and I love your spelling of color.

I forgot to ask. How do you print your photos? Do you have a home printer or do you have them printed at some special place.

I bet you wished you hadn't opened the curtains! Not a nice bright day at all.

What a stunning photograph and I think it's perfect for xmas cards. I am so envious of your photographic skills. CoB

These are absolutely beautiful! I love them! I don't know what a "teazel" is, but is sure is pretty and interesting looking! Oh, that reminds me, candy corn ~ it is little pieces of candy that are white, yellow and orange and shaped and look exactly like the little triangles on my Halloween card. It's so fun the different things in our countries that we don't know what they are, I love it!!! Big hugs, J:)
