This week I want you to make a card for any occasion but it must include a photograph somewhere! The photo subject can be people, items, locations, flowers, absolutely anything so get snapping. Dont forget to check copyright if you are using someone else's photographs in your art work
As usual you can share your work with us by leaving a comment on the DCM blog with a link to your own, or by emailing your photo to us at email@example.com
Have Fun!!!I've waffled on before about some changes Hubby's made to our computer set up so I suppose I shouldn't have been surprised when I went to print off the photo I wanted to use only to find the printer wouldn't work - not a good start! This was sosrted out and next day the printer worked fine - to start with. But my first attempt at a card didn;t work at all fine and when I went to print off another photo to try again, well, the printer wouldn't work, again! Apparently it's been set to go into snooze mode when it's not being used, but it must have fallen into deep sleep because it wouldn't wake up however much I dug my elbows into it! Plan B I remembered some photo stickers I bought from Crafts U Love, conveniently using the same sort of B&W images on a baby theme that I wanted to do with one of our own photos. I couldn't find them - I knew where they'd been up till last week when I TIDIED up a box with baby themed stuff in it, but now..... I did find them at last, and got this card made: Black and silver card both from pda White card embossed with the Cuttlebug embossing folder Silver brads from stash Photo sticker by Pebbles Inc. from Crafts U Love Spotty ribbon from Ribbon Oasis Yesterday, with printer working properly and the relief of having a card ready to show today I decided to have another go and this time I've raided my treasured box of old family photos to make this wedding card. Brown card blank from pda
Gorgeous paper is one of the Carrinna Rose set from Dream Street Papers
I used one of the papers from the BG Pheobe pad to make the flower
Naked Chipboard corner from an old SA Kit, covered with more paper & inked up

I spent a lovely couple of hours with Bex yesterday - it was really good to catch up and have the chance to indulge in a bit of stash-chat with someone who understands these things! What with meeting Lyth, Sue and Anita last week too, I could start to get used to these crafty get-togethers!
