Lucky I didn’t promise to not ask again. I had a long talk this morning with my friend JC who shared with me his own journey in relating to my business card. He shared why he changed his opinion on using “In the Garden” as the third image. So he encouraged me to go try out some other images … and we discussed which ones might work best.

So you can blame him or give him credit … I choose the credit route … for yet another round. I then got what people were saying about the image (In the Garden) not going with the other images. It helped me that he hadn’t seen the lack of working together either until others pointed it out.

He also suggested that I was actually using the context of the larger size of “In the Garden” when I was looking at the business card. I wasn’t seeing what is actually there, but furnishing details from my brain. Then I got it … I could see it plenty well … but if I had never seen it, that might be distracting to try to see what was there … so helpful! You never know which words will get an idea clear to someone! Looking again, maybe I can see the details … whichever is true, I am going to have all 3 versions in the running and THIS should be the last time (notice, no promise again …) …

I am happy because none of these 3 versions bother me. I could live with any of them. Good place to be! Until now, I have not been happy with more than one version at a time. I think I know which works best, but I would like to hear from you. I tried about 12 versions this morning … just to make sure I wasn’t overlooking any gems. Susan and I winnowed out these 2 new ones – I feel sure they are the best of what I put together this morning.
Whoops … one more tweak … on the size of the Inner Flow … sigh … thank you for sticking with me!

Tom is seriously considering this one still … so I am putting this in too … any other requests? I sent Tom a pdf with these choices … I am glad to send one to anyone else too!

I have edited this post again to take Sue’s suggestions into account. So here is another version of the 1 image card … obviously very different. I hadn’t thought to put it together like this ….

Now Susan wants a change … She wanted me to put this version up too … and I wonder where my times goes … I am very eager to hear what you are going to say! I am going to sleep on it all!

This is my change … I couldn’t sleep thinking about I wanted to try the image just a little bigger so it filled up the space more … I think I might actually print 2 versions … I have never spent money on advertising .. and this would all be a lot for me … but doable.
