Not just an ordinary light bulb

I have been wanting to work with light bulbs for some time now, I guess  its because I work for an electricity company. These light bulbs with a scene inside were designed on photoshop, I printed the  images and cut them out, the sentiments have been computer generated. I added the light bulb to the cards  using self  adhesive dimensional foam. These cards are inexpensive and I feel can be given to a male or female.

Of late I have been inspired by everyday things such as cameras, fans, bulbs, hangers, coffee cups and other such things. It just shows that inspiration is all around  us and all we need  is a little imagination to make the ordinary into something extra-ordinary.

I had a much better day at work today, thank goodness. Hope everyone is having a good week.
