Decisions...decisions!

Back on October 28, I won a blog giveaway from High Street Cottage for 100 free postcards. I have spent many hours days trying to get one designed that I was happy with! {no easy feat on dial-up internet I might add} When I wasn't cleaning, cooking, shopping or playing I was trying to figure out a design that I really liked.
I put together this collage...

and this one...


yet another one...

and this plain photo and guess what????
 I ended up using NONE of them!! Oh heavens...I love to win things and believe me I am so grateful, but this about drove me to the madhouse. hee hee. I am not a postcard designer and we will see how they actually turn out. They may not even be fit to look at, but hey I tried.
I know this lace and spools photo is an old one, but I am still in love with it and it is one of my most favorite photos ever so I will tell you that it is part of the design I chose, but otherwise it looks nothing like these. Keeping my fingers crossed that they will turn out okay.
{I hope to get back to checking in with more of your blogs soon since I have this behind me now}
