An apology and a few cards

Good morning everyone. I am so sorry I have not been visiting your blogs for a few days,  my mojo got lost while I had the frozen shoulder and I just couldn't get myself motivated at all! Anyway, I am back now and hopefully will catch up at least a little so here are a few cards I made with my recent swan photograph :o)



 Although the first one looks cream it is actually white base card, the light was so bad all day yesterday as the fog never really lifted!
I opened the photograph in Photoshop Elements 5 to create a png image then opened the original image and the png in Paint Shop Pro to create the toppers.
Punches and dies used are SU, Martha Stewart and Spellbinder, swirl cut on the Cricut from the SCAL shape library, Cuttlebug embossing folder used on the mat for the third card and SU stamp for the greeting on the top card :o)

So nice to "see" your voice again. I had a frozen shoulder a few years back. I literally couldn't drive or open a door. I had never heard of a fozen shoulder unitl I had it. Some ugly shots and 8 weeks of physical therapy. Never do I carry a bag of school books or a heavy bags over periods of time...which caused mine. So glad you are moving around again and sharing your beautiful cards and photos. Just stunning!
