This evening, after I accomplished my goal of wrapping gifts for a few of my co-workers, I sat down at the computer and haven’t moved much since. I’ve been playing around in Photoshop designing holiday cards.
It’s what I do for fun.
Who knows? Maybe I’ll have them printed and offer them for sale next year. Or give them away as gifts. Here, I’ll show you what I was working on.
I like the night sky in this one.
There’s just something about the sky at night, isn’t there?
This one’s sort of traditional.
The thing about this photograph is that I took it on a very warm August day. Doesn’t it look like December, though?
I really like this one a lot. I love those squiggles of Joy St. Claire’s free holiday textures. Although the edge is a little too dark for my taste, at least in this photograph, I got my typeface exactly as I wanted it.
This one will have the words inside. And I’m not sure I’m loving this last one. But for now, it can hang with the gang.
So that’s what I’m up to tonight.
And if you’ve read this far, you deserve to be entered to win a prize. Surprise! Leave me a comment telling me which was your favorite card and I’ll enter you in a drawing to win one of the key fobs from this post. I don’t know what they’re called, key chains, key fobs. So go ahead, leave a comment, and just tell me which card do you like the best?
I’ll use the random.org to choose a winner an will announce this Saturday (December 19) in the early evening.
Until then, my friends . . .
