My New Card and WOW!

"Sneak Attack!"

When we visited the Longwood Gardens on the old Dupont estate in Pennsylvania I was amazed at all the beautiful flowers!  We went in the fall and I thought I might not be able to get any good pics of flowers.  I was wrong!  There were so many beautiful autumn blooms.  One, in particular was this beautiful color combination:  gold flowers and purply brown foliage.  The photo itself was not that great but I loved the contrasts of shades.  I knew I could make a nice card out of it but by itself it wasn't enough.  I love cats and my son, Cliff, has 2 beautiful gray ones.  I thought how striking it would be to incorporate a gray cat into this colorful scene.  I'm very happy with how it turned out.  

Of course Cliff was the lucky one to get the original.  It's his 40th birthday today and I wanted to give him a special card.  But I knew this could be a popular one for others to purchase.  So the printed card was born and today I picked it up from the printers.  It far surpassed my expectations and, if I do say so myself, it turned out spectacular!

So, if you would like a set or more:  it's $12.00 for 4 cards plus postage if I have to mail it to you.  The cards are 5" x 7" and easily put into a ready made frame if you want to enjoy it even more on your shelf.  My email is if you would like to get in touch with me for a purchase.
