As an accountant here in the UK, between now and the end of January is my busiest time of year as I struggle to get all the tax returns and accounts sorted by the tax return filing deadline of 31 January. Since I don't have anyone to help me do the accounts, this means that I work all sorts of hours and most days of the week in order to get all the work done. As a result, I have very little free time although I am taking some time off at the moment to have a play with Photoshop!

This week has been particularly busy as I have been out at a client's premises most of the week and it will be the same for the next two, possibly three weeks as I have two large sets of accounts for different clients to do. I get so busy I forget to not only look at the clock to see what time it is, but also at the calendar and forget what day it is and where we are in the month! I had mad panic this week as I actually looked at the calendar and realised that our car needed to be taxed at the end of this month, so we would have to get it MOT'd on the next week.... one frantic phone call later to the garage, and it was booked.

Anyhow, since I've had most of the day off so far I thought I'd let you have another freebie. I've been playing around with cardboard styles and trying to recolour them and this is what I came up with:

You can either click on the preview or here to download, and it is for personal, commercial or scrap for hire use. Whilst they are not quite the prime colours someone requested, they are the best I can do at the moment as I am still working on blend modes, recolouring, hue/saturation, etc. I love all the different things you can do with Photoshop, but there is just so much I still don't know how to do.
I'm off to do some work now and then I need to do our church notices for tomorrow as well as try and have an early night, which would be going some if I can get all that done since it is now almost 4 pm here!
