No Spring Skips it's Turn!

Despite the stop and go weather we've been having this spring (snow one day, warm the next) there is one thing that you can be sure of in the spring.

Baby animals! 

I especially love lambs. 

So when I saw these cards at my card group last month, I straight away asked my friend and card-maker, Shauna Hunt, if I could share them with you.

Shauna is a great photographer and enjoys turning her photographs (with a little photoshop help) into cards.

Below is the original picture.  Strategic cropping, a perfect sentiment and a filtered water-color look and you have a picture-perfect card!  Be sure to Click on the image above to enlarge and see the detail.

As the weather improves, and we head out to enjoy the world, be sure to take your camera and think about cards. This has always been a favorite technique of mine, started many years ago when I received a photo cards assignment form Paper Crafts Magazine.

If you don't fancy yourself much of a photographer, or simple don't have the ability to edit them, please visit my Studio 5 segment I did last year on Photo Cards.  There are many free downloads...just print and adhere to a card.


Didn't Shauna just capture the spring in this little lamb's step?  LOVE IT!

We have sheep behind us and the lambs were born about 6 weeks ago. I do love the little HOP they do...just pure joy to watch:)
