Business Cards

I was playing around today and trying to make my own business cards.
I have print shop, so I can make lots of fun things with it and figured, I should use it.
Sometimes people ask me for one, and this way I will have some with me, even if they aren't perfect.
The problem is when I printed them, they lettering is small, so want the info to be seen.

I used my pirate photo and a ship from the program and used a wood background, I like the look of this one.
But, the lettering is harder to see, so need to work on that. I had to save it as a jpg, so they came out small, hopefully you can see them.

I also tried it in white and rearranged the pictures. I think the wood looks nicer, but the white is easier to read on.
On the printouts, I had vanilla card stock, so maybe I can find a better textured card stock and use that as the background.
Would use less ink too.

And this is the hotel we are staying in. This is the marina suite, it has kitchens, which I need that because of my special diet.
I could never afford a place like this, but with the hotel points, we got 3 free nights, so just right for an anniversary getaway;)
Bill has been sick with a bad cold, lets hope I don't get it.
