ActiveRain Holiday Greeting Card Contest!

My favorite kind of contest! More pictures and less words! Great idea Sally. I make my own holiday cards for clients and family, I use my own photography on a photo mount card. During the winter I am always on the lookout for that new perfect shot that will make this years card the best!

Whoo hoo, way to go!

Isn't this great? Sally always comes up with such great ideas. I do my own photos on photo mount cards every year, I have seen already that my creativity was put to shame, LOL.
