Creating in-camera is creating! I'm sure your meticulous eye had the whole thing figured out and shot it to get what you wanted. We can all learn from your precision.

They make me smile! Esp the one in the middle! Cool photoshop skills on display here. When you make this years card please add it. I will probably make several just because it's fun and good practice for me.


Thanks Minnie !!! The bulldogs are so much fun. However, the one in the middle had to be put down about 6 months later. So sad, he was our first.

Okay, so I got off my but and cobbled this together with some random leftover props from last year. I'm including a BTS in a spoiler for those who are interested. Enjoy.

Excellent Duck, lots of color, good design using fun elements, cool type (with a drop shadow, even!).

I hope to find a few hours where I can create something else myself. I just watched this free tutorial about how to make a Christmas card in Photoshop, from this vendor where I get a lot of freebies and occasionally buy something (I splurged on the $2 bundle) https://www.designcuts.com/product/illustrated-festive-elements/

That's wonderful! The bear is great all by himself but he's just way. Cute in his Santa hat guarding his tree.

It's kind of addicting, and I learned something new so that's exciting. Thank you for always pushing us to learn more! S-

I can get lost in the world of pictures, playing with the stuff I've taken to try and make something new and fun of it.

I missed this one yesterday! (Yesterday was a rough day for me and pM, as you know - I appreciate you and Duck helping me sort out the problem so much).

This is wonderful. I confess I imagined that scene as a Christmas ornament when you posted the light bulb version. It works wonderfully when piled up with other ornaments.

Creativity is FUN!
