T Stands for Bleubeard

Several people have mentioned that Bleubeard doesn't get enough attention on "our" blog.  Since today is his birthday, it's only fair to feature him for T.  I'm still not feeling well, and whatever this is, it's more than just a small bug.  You know it's something serious if I miss four days of blogging.  So I was delighted to feature my partner in crime, but hopefully not in illness, for T today.

 Doesn't he look awesome in this cup?

Just be careful how you crop your photos,


so you don't loose important things like feet or tails!


What if I were to turn him into a latte?  Would that be your cup of T?

He'd look pretty good on the TV sitting on the kitchen counter,

or in the office computer.

Of course, he might find his way to my craft room, where
he would become a hand sewing project (not).

Now I realize Bleubeard may be showing his age, but this one is just CRUEL!!

All digital effects are from PhotoFunia, where you can turn your favorite photos into various effects like the ones I chose for Bleubeard.  But be careful.  Some photos fit better than others.  And of course, the effects can be addicting.  Just ask Bleubeard. 

Tell us a story.  Share a drink, even if it's digital.  Or share some art.  Post on Tuesday.  Send good thoughts to our British friends who are fighting the "storm of the century," Wish Bleubeard a happy birthday, then prepare for Halloween.  Enjoy the day and visit others who link up.  We are still a small community, so please reciprocate.



Thanks for joining T Stands For Tuesday.  Hopefully this "bug" won't last forever and I'll be back among the living  blogging soon.
