Thanks Richard - wasn't sure  I'd done it right  :lipsx:
Only tried a blog once before and it didn't last long due to malicious comments
and that is why I put the comments on moderated only for now till I know
how it goes :)

It's not rocket-science - if it looks right, then it is right as long as any links point where they should, anything more is merely a matter of taste and only you can decide the way you want it to look.

I'll add a link to yours from mine to give Google a bit of encouragement as mine is spidered pretty regularly, as is this place - incoming links are what'll help drive you some traffic.

It's looking good, Donna.

If you make a tent like thing (that covers the surface and the background) out of a non-reflective material (such as velvet) and stand your cards on that when you photograph them they'll stand out without any distractions from the background. For your cards I'd suggest either black or a dark purple fabric.

Just an idea.

Thanks Karen - will see if I can put something together at some point :)

Just need to remember to watermark photos before uploading too :)

The other thing I was wondering about is disabling right click on images ???
But I aint got a clue :o

Don't do that... It doesn't achieve anything as the images are easy to save regardless by simply turning off javascript...

Thanks Richard - will just have to get into putting a watermark
on my images before I upload them anywhere (not great at remembering
to do that yet)  ::)

Will see what I can find another day to make a photo booth for my cards :)

Have you considered drawing your own cute characters instead of using stamps?
