Sent to my grandmother in 1909, she was 5 year old. 

Today, last sunday in May, Swedish people celebrate Mothers day.
This card was sent to my grandmother (my fathers mother) in 1909 on the Ingrid name-day in our almanack. My grandmothers name was Ingrid and her name is written on the card. She was born 1904 so she was 5 years old when she recieved the card. Before she died I was given all of her cards to take care of.

FotoSketcher,  må 10 (paint)

A bit lazy today I´, afraid. To hot outside all of a sudden. Just a few days ago it was winter :(

Using a software called FotoSketcher 3.0 I created the two images below from the one on top.  They are very small, only 900 pix wide.

You can do a lot with this software but yoy have the best effect on small images. And everything don´t look good. So you use it wisely.  But soon I will have my computers working, finger crossed! Then I can start praticing on the pad I have but could not use. Will be fun to see if I can handle it!
