Picture this!

Three Clovers Thursday Challenge

Challenge #28
I can not believe it has been that long already!

This week Kerry has challenged us to use a photo on our cards. I decided to make a card with the photo as the main image and a card that will hold a photo.

I love this fall photo and it really made me think of the beauty that is around us every day that we just take for granted. Sometimes we just get to busy and miss out on so much. I thought that the two rub on that I found in my drawer both worked so I used them together. It was hard to get a good picture that really shows up the top saying. It says Remember His Wonders. and of course the bottom says Trust in the Lord.

On this next card I was playing around with my Gazelle cutter. There is so much I can do with this if I only had the time to learn it all, lol. I cute the words for the front of this card....

and then cut the frame for the inside. Can you see that it is santa in his sleigh on top and a house on the bottom. Pretty cool actually! The problem was I did not have a decent picture to put in it. This is a very old picture of my niece and my son. Not a very good picture but you get the idea.


Why not play along, it was pretty fun actually. Head over to Kerry's Blog to see what the other girls came up with.

See ya later

Love them both, MJ! The pic of the tree is gorgeous! I just love fall with it's crisp, clean air and beautiful colors. And I'm right there with you about the machine. I have a Pazzle that I know I could do so much with. If only I had some extra time to learn how to do it. Hope you're having a great week! hugs!

I love the photo card idea. What a quick card to make and so pretty! That Christmas card is awesome. I wish I had a stamping room and could afford a cutter. There is so much you can do with them. I am grateful for what I do have and God has blessed me with so much.
