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.

  21. 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

  29. 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.
