Notes from my Garden


Inspiration comes from everywhere. I had a plan for this month's Note Card Party, but then in church on Sunday, an image was shown on the screen and all my plans flew away. This one took a little preparation and good weather. I taught yesterday, so I prepared last night and hoped for a sunny morning. Wind flapped against the house most of the night and I wondered if Plan A would have to be resurrected in the likelihood of rain. How happy I was to see the sun this morning!





Easter greetings in English and French. These were fun to do. The preparation involved writing the cards.


And a box top so you know what you're getting! I'm looking forward to visiting at Vee's Party this afternoon - you're welcome to join in. Vee's new rules allow for new photos, not just ones previous published. This is a good thing, I think.

"The "signs of time ring out the news..." Remember that old song. Well it came to mind when I saw the signs of your garden, and especially the HE IS RISEN....Beautiful set of Easter Cards.

Clever, Lorrie and extra work to create those photos. Very creative and a good collective theme. Box them up!

Beautiful !!
Thanks for stopping by. Yes, hard to believe the things I started out housekeeping with are now considered vintage.
Enjoy your evening.

O clever girl! (I do see why you had to break the rules. ) Will they be made up? I hope so!

Lorrie - I love your idea for this month's cards, they really are beautiful.
Love your penmanship/calligraphy also - and using the clothespins was a good idea.

Busy week for you - hopefully some time to rest this coming Easter weekend.

Hugs - Mary

Your cards are lovely.

I was just digging through supplies and came across my sketchbook from an online doodling class I took. I miss just sketching things on paper with colored pens. After seeing your cards, I am going to play today. We are total wimps and complaining because it is 64 degrees and too cold to be outdoors.

Debbie said...

I love these!! This is one of the best note card selections I've seen because it's so creative. It makes me want to copycat you!

Jeanne said...

Nicely done. I would like any one of these as a note card.

Cranberry Morning said...

What a clever idea! I like the clothespin effect. These make great note cards.

Carol said...

I like your idea to clip notes on the plants. Happy Easter!

Smiles,
Carol
