Back to my photographs.....

Sorry, I can't leave them alone for long :o)

Good morning everyone, I hope all is well in your world. Here's a few hugs if you need or want them {{{{{hugs}}}}}

I am off to see the Doc early so I will have to pop back later to catch up with commenting. My shoulder problem, and looking after Stephen after his stroke, has stopped me going out on whole day photo shoots like I used to, but with around 20,000 photographs on my ext. hard drive, I have been digging deep and playing with ones I took years ago and forgot about. This Bottlebrush (Callistemon) plant is one of them. I think I took it at Barnsdale Gardens, Near Rutland Water, a few years ago.

I make no apologies for the photograph being crooked, I do that deliberately to get the best angle for the light to show the embossing.
The pearlised card that I used for the base card I bought at a show at Donnington Hall a couple of years or so ago. I folded and cut it to 6x6 then embossed with Ebosser A4 Honeycomb folder. You are seeing the debossed side because I forgot that the card was single sided and did it the wrong side LOL.
Photograph printed on white linen card from Papermill Direct, then cut with Spellbinders dies. Red card backing is from my scrap box.
Flutterbies punched with Martha Stewart punch.
Foliage cut with Memory Box die.
I hope you like it :o)
Jackie xx
