Well, you know me… I’m just sitting here at my desk piddling away with Photoshop. I took this photo at Lake Louise several weeks back. You know, before it was frozen solid. I love this picture. It really is one of my favorites yet.
Tonight I turned it into a postcard. It’s for you. So, now you can say you’ve received a postcard from Canada. Don’t say I never gave you anything.
Dear Blog Reading Friends,
I like you. You’re nice. Thanks for always being there. Even though I can’t see you, I know you exist. I hope you like this postcard. It’s even prettier in real life. The lake, not the postcard. Come for a visit and I’ll give you a free popsicle; hand made by me and frozen by the enormous freezer that is outside my backdoor.
But goodness I just couldn’t stop there. Making postcards is just too much fun it turns out. Here are two more. I always like to show you the before and after. I don’t know why. It must be from having watched one too many makeover shows.
Here is my spooky tree before becoming a postcard. Well, sort of before. Sort of after a sepia filter had been added. But I didn’t have the really and truly before in my Flickr and I’m lazy. So, sort of before is as good as you’re gonna get.:
And spooky tree as a postcard:
Remember my little Woodpecker friend, for whom I trudged through more than one thorny thicket?
And Here is Mr. Woodpecker as the cover bird on a postcard. Even though a postcard doesn’t have a cover. It just has a front and back. But front bird doesn’t have the same ring to it as cover bird.
Turn this one over and you read this note:
Dear Faithful Blog Reader,
I love you. So I am sending you this postcard with a picture of a sharp beek-ed bird who could probably have taken my eye out in one peck if he had gotten annoyed enough with me. But I did it all for you. It’s all about you. The things we do for love.
Your affectionate blogging friend,
