December 2011 - photo challenge - Pets and the Holidays

December 3rd, 2011, 11:57 AM
Anyone got ideas for December's photo challenge?
thx! M

Something Christmas!! Hahah.

We're sort of in between winter fun and summer sun here--not enough snow to have a good game of bury your packmate and too cold to sit and bask on the deck. So how about just a "dreaming of summer" challenge--could post pics of a pet napping in a sunbeam, or just napping...or use some older pics of summer fun to illustrate what they're dreamin' about. :shrug: (LOL Yes, ulterior motive. I have some pics like that heheh)

I like "Dreaming", sleeping with a "dream caption". I know sleeping has been done, but they can be intense dream like expressions....

another idea or two and we'll have a majority :)

Pets with "Bows and Ribbons" for Christmas.........everyone is lost for ideas!!

No clear majority here so I'll make the call.

Pets and the Holidays.

Ok then merging posts now - who will go first?

Bailey and The Boys say Merry Christmas!!

December 23rd, 2011, 06:55 PM
All are wonderful! I don't know if these photos count or not. I fell in love with a commercial card. I took this photo of my boys (which was a lousy one composition-wise), did some fooling around with the commercial card in PhotoShop, and came up with our Xmas card for this year featuring Den-Den and Corky. I did give the original artist credit on the back of my card, with the notation it was modified by me. Still not sure if it's legal or not, but only did it for our own use.
