ATC Online Swap 3 - Floral Designs

ATC Online Swap 3
Floral Designs
Well you certainly sent some lovely ATC's for the last swap and quite a variety of designs. As there are some very beautiful winter flowers in my garden I have decided we will do a floral theme this time.

Here are some of my garden pics to get you in the mood.




My Mum was much more of a Gardner than me. Here are some of our home when I was a child. I loved our garden. Although these were definitely not taken in winter.

As you can see by this last photo our neighbor was a gardener also. The photo was taken from in front of our neighbors house looking toward our house.

The ATC's I have done are below. 


I can't wait to see what you all come up with.

Below is the information you will need if you wish to participate in this swap.

  1. I love the all but how can we copy them if not uploaded in the right size? Dorothy Allison,Barbara K I think I can enlarge barbaras but how can I copy dorothys?

    1. Sorry Melody, I think I have rectified the problem now. Quite often people do not send me their ATC's singly. They are one large picture for multiple cards. I then have to find the time to separate them, sometimes after that, they do not enlarge without blurring. As for Marie's design, when I first copied it I could not enlarge it without blurring it so I left it small. I recopied the ATC's just then, separated them and they seem to be in focus at the right size, so I do not know what I did wrong the first time. This is a learning experience for me. Thank you for challenging me to fix the problem. Let me know if you have any more problems.
