VEE'S MARCH NOTE CARD PARTY

 
Slipped up behind this sea gull at Lake Tahoe.  Turns out to be a keeper and a nice note card!

 This rustic birdhouse hanging on a tree in my daughter's yard would be a note card I would buy.   I love birdhouses.

 I would love to see my mother's cup and saucer on a note card.  It was given to her on her first birthday (1913) so is over 100 years old.  It started my tea cup collection.


This is one of my watercolor note cards.  "Pansies for Betty".  A friend I worked with years ago ask me to paint his mother a card of pansies as she was in ICU and could not have fresh flowers in her room.  I added a tea pot with the flowers and named it "Pansies for Betty".  She recovered and was able to take the card home as a reminder.

  4. How nice to have your mother's teacup, and the birdhouse with the heart entrance is adorable. The pansy painting is wonderful, here we all are using Waterlogue to achieve your natural talent.

  34. that's a lovely painting, Wanda. She must have been very blessed. Alexandra makes cards like that too. Always amazes me the time and diligence it takes to make a card that one is only going to turn around and mail off right away. Good though, very.
