Note Card Inspiration


Today is Vee's Note Card Party.  Vee from A Haven for Vee hosts this party each month.  She asks that we just choose four photos that we have already posted on our blog that we think might make nice note cards.

Why not join the party too, or just stop by Vee's place to be inspired.  Here's a nice song for Spring inspiration.  I'm an old movie fan.


Last year I posted about Spring and there I found a few photos that I thought might make nice note cards.


I love walking along the paths at Tower Hill Botanical Garden.


There Daffodil gardens are lovely too.


This tree is in my garden, and every year I await the beautiful white blossoms.


Spring, sigh. It will arrive soon.

After the long harsh winter,
Spring arrives like a beautiful gift.


For the first Daffodil image I painted for fun, I used backgrounds, textures and brushes from French Kiss Collections.

How beautiful Karen we are all just waiting for spring. I am so tired of cold and rain and sleet.

Not only is it beautiful, it looks so warm. Perhaps we got it wrong, Karen. It's not really March in like a lion out like a lamb. It's spring in like a lion out like a lamb. Sigh. Thanks for the beauty!

I'm reading via Bloglovin and it's not allowing me to listen to the music so I'm running over to my blog roll so that I may.

Karen these are lovely images, especially the last. Blossoms are bursting out all over here. A wonderful time of year. I like all your creativity such as the daffodils. I should check out your source and see what is there.

Hello Karen

I'm visiting from Vees.

You've gathered a special selection of cards to send to friends looking forward to Spring - and who isn't in your corner of the world!
They're just lovely and will bring hope and good cheer wherever they go!

As beautiful and inspiring as ever, Karen. Please keep your page as is. Don't change a thing. I've seen so many blogging friends going down a trendy and dangerous path lately and I'm hoping that my favorite pages remain genuine and free of ulterior motives...a true inspiration these days. Your work is even lovelier because you are so graceful at presenting it. Thank you.
Happy spring!!!

I love your note cards and I especially love the way you framed them all. Anyone who received a card as beautiful as these would surely feel special.

These photos are lovely signs of spring. Soon, soon. How we all long for those blossoming days. Spring is a gift, indeed!

Good morning sweet and most special friend.

Your name came up in a sweet conversation about people who truly inspire, and of course, your blog and the spirit behind it all, YOU was the topic of a conversation about perseverance, beauty and good taste. Thank you for always being there. Anita

Karen, I love your look at Spring. It is always a happy visit to see what marvelous images you will share with us. Happy Spring!

Kathleen Grace said...

Oh I can't wait for Spring can you?
I am so ready for barefoot walks in the yard and listening to the crickets and peepers at sunset while sitting in the garden. Your images are beautiful, but my favorite is the close up of the magnolia's. It really would make a lovely postcard!

Very lovely blossoms Karen. Botanical gardens are such treasures to photograph in, aren't they? My birthday treat every July is a day at RBG Kew and I wouldn't want to go anywhere else. Here in Vancouver we are just starting to see some of the earliest cherries. Hurry spring! :)

Those certainly put me in the mood for spring! Lovely.
