Sometimes A Single Pumpkin Is All You Need. . .


Sometimes a single pumpkin is all you need. . . .
to make your photos "POP". . . .


unless you have three pumpkins, that is. . . .


I've been playing with PicMonkey.com. . . .
planning to use my Fall photos to send Greetings to Faraway Friends. . . .

I love how they turned out. . . .
almost "artistic". . . . 

I'm constantly amazed at what a computer can do. . . .

Once they're printed. . . .I'll add them to the front of some card stock, 
folded into a Greeting Card. . . .
and add a personal note.

How simple it that?


Please feel free to print any of these out for your own Cards. . . 
If you don't want The Country Farm Home printed on yours. . . .
then just crop it out. . . .I don't mind. . . .

  
Hope you all had a great weekend. . . .We came back from Tennessee full of energy, 
so it looks like it will be a busy week for us. . . .
The weather is suppose to be super. . . .lots to do outside. . . .
and in between we're finishing the checkerboard floor. . . .
Yes, we're still working on it--you won't believe all the trouble we've had. . . .
but, that's for another post. . . .


I'm gathering my tools right now and heading outdoors for a little Fall sunshine. . . .
How about you?. . . .Get out and enjoy the Fall weather. . . .
It won't be long til winter, you know. . . .

from my farmhouse to yours. . . .

I love your scarecrows, so original. Thanks for offering these great photos. I do just the very basic in PicMonkey. I am curious to learn how you got the one orange pumpkin in the b&w photo? xo

Cindy@OldTimePickers said...

Your photos are fantabulous! I don't use picmonkey much and I guess I should.

Julie Marie@Idyllhours said...

Those pics are so cute!... I really love the scarecrow on the ledge and also the old baking powder can... our Autumn is just beautiful here right now... but snow is predicted for Thursday, yikes!... hope it is just in our mountains and not here in my little valley... I want Autumn to last... and last... thank you for letting me print some of your photos... that is so generous of you... I will make some cards for my family as well... xoxo Julie Marie

It is amazing what computers can do. I don't know what that kind of effect is called, but I love it.

These are just gorgeous!! My favourites are the baking powder one (awesome crate) and the scarecrow. No sunshine here... snowing and blowing. Sigh.

I love the black and white photos with the pop of orange. I guess I haven't played enough with PicMonky. How do you do that?

O, girlfriend, you need to attend Vee's Note Card Party each month. She asks us to choose 4 photos we've published on our blog, that we think would make a cute set of notecards.
It's a lot of fun and you would love it.
These photos of yours are just wonderful. Now, I've been playing in PicMonkey but haven't learned to do this....I wonder how you do it? I'll go over and look....:))

Jann Olson said...

Oh my gosh Dru these are picture perfect! The pop of orange is

Hugs,
