note card photos ~ a new meme




lilacs in a basket

My dear blog friend Vee, at "A Haven For Vee",
has challenged us to choose 4 of our favorite photos
that could be used for note cards.
Join me for a Note Card Photo Party at Vee's.

This was a real challenge for me as I have thousands
of photos to choose from.

These are just a few of my favorites.


birdies in the garden


I use a lot of my photos for greeting cards that I make
from card stock and envelopes I purchase.
It is inexpensive to print the photos at a print machine
at a local store so I save a lot of money making my own cards.

Thank you Vee for hosting this party today.
It was fun to take part.


Please drop by and visit Vee for a




Blessings,

  5. Very good. I make my own cards too. Mostly I paint each one by hand but I try to stay ahead. I will be using some photos now. This was a good idea.

  8. If I didn't know better, I would think that these were already postcards! I love them all, but the Lilacs are my favorite. I could almost smell their wonderful frangrance!

  9. You made some beautiful choices, but I have seen you have a lot to pick from. That huge gray barn a few posts back, for instance. I could never adjust to the climate, but that old house would be fun to live in. Making your own cards is not only smart, it's so personal too. I love the idea. I'm glad to hear the melt is on! I have a deep aversion to mud though. I hope you have a beautiful season!

  12. Morning Pamela, I love all your cards but particularly the "ticking one" if I saw that in a shop as a postcard I would buy it for my collection. You have made a great choice for your four, well done. Have a great day, Jackie in Surrey, UK.x

  19. Oh yes, you are a photographer! I can see every one of the photos you shared on the front of a Hallmark card! Stunning! (And yes, I realized that I ended every sentence with an exclamation point...but I am feeling exclamatory!) :D

  22. I really like your note cards . . . the bird on the fence post is charming. I used to make cards too, not as much anymore. I like a card where I can write my own message . . . Yours a very nice!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Yours are very nice . . . once again . . . It wouldn't let me go back and correct . . . sorry!

  24. My favorite is the birds in the garden. All are beautiful!

  25. Those are all beautiful! I especially like the window and room in the second one. Dramatic lighting is always one of my favorite things! Making our own cards is fun and I think folks appreciate them more than store-bought one!

  26. Your photography is lovely, and each one of your photos make gorgeous notecards. Now that you make your own, I'm sure everyone wants one.

  27. Oh my! They are all beautiful! I'm having a hard time finding a favorite! I think I will say the lilacs in the basket but the birdies in the garden is just as pretty. They all look so prefessional. I could see any of these as cards in the Halmark store.

  36. Your photos are gorgeous - I sure people love receiving your note cards. I was reading your bio(while waiting for my satellite internet connection - ugh) and had to chuckle at your "retired stay at home mom" title - it's one I use also.

    Have a wonderful evening, and thank you for sharing.

  37. Hi Pamela,
    Your photo cards are beautiful, the lilacs are stunning...Are they from your garden?
    I love the picture from Kings Landing we would take our kids there whenever we had the extra time to stop. They always loved it! What a perfect family destination.
    The sunset is just breathtaking, so beautiful!
    All the Best,
    Christine
