NOTE CARD PARTY FOR APRIL

 "A Gala Event"
 "Summer Fashion"
 "A Father's Touch"


"Seeing Eye to Eye"

When you think of watercolor...you think "color" but I wanted to  to share my watercolor note cards in black and white.

These note cards I've use on different occasions.  The two lovely ladies have been Birthday Cards, or an Invitation to Lunch.

The Father and baby I used on Father's Day.

And when a friend of mine was having some trouble with a friend and wanted to make it right; I suggested she use this card, and begin it with the phrase ~ "We don't always see eye to eye, but your friendship is more important than that"
She took my suggestion and it mended a friendship with a smile.

That's what I love about note cards.  They can truly make a difference to the one that receives them.

To see a wonderful variety of note cards just click on the purple Note Card badge on my sidebar.

    1. I truly believe that. Just yesterday I was going through some old boxes and found a bag of cards that were sent to me in 2009 during my cancer journey. They meant so much to me.

    I do love your profile comments about "being"!! I'm right there with you - only I have just the one grandbaby and she's only 3 - no great grands for sometime, I daresay. Delightful getting to know you.
