with love...

well i have just had my 4th blog anniversary ~started my blog 24th februrary 2008 ~so i thought i would change my photo ~think 4 years is enough of that old one!!..any clues how to just have a head shot (instead of all of me)!!???

anyway onto the two cards i have made, no~one enjoys making sympathy cards, unfortunately i have had to make two today..... my thoughts are with both families (one being Lewis`s friend Jack who lost his grandad over the weekend and the other for a dear craft blogging friend who has lost her mum)..also thinking of my dear friend vicki who buried her mother~in ~law today!

i am entering these cards for :~ CUTE CARD THURSDAY#205 ~WINGED THINGS

used sandra kuck images and words, nestabilities label (cut out the front of the cards) and swirl dies, sizzix(tim h) lace edge and swirl dies.

hope you are having a wonderful day and had some craft time....... today i took my father to the hospital for another trip to the cardiac dept for more tests.....i do hope his op goes ahead next month.

Hi Nessy, I love your new photo just how it is!!! But if you just want your head, crop your photo first I'm unsure what system your using on your computer, mine is HP photo smart. Then save it just with your head (eg Nessy then Save As once it's cropped as Nessy's Head) and down load that image in blogger, if your downloading an image like your current photo you'll still get what you have taken on blogger it only shrinks it to size not crops it. I do hope this make sense. Love your cards they both look awesome and I'm sorry to hear of all your sad news.

Hi nessy, great new pic and congrats on 4 years of blogging!

So sorry to hear of the sad losses, sympathy cards are the worse ones to make, aren't they? Having said that, they are lovely cards.
