Note Card Party~April

Welcome to this month's Note Card Party!



 a clinker?

This has been a challenge. My abilities have been improving over considerable amounts of time. Even though I have nearly five years of photos in storage on this blog, I have precious few of any merit. These photos have all appeared in former Aprils. I hope that there's no repeat of that last scene this year! (Yes, I added the note card feature from Photoscape.)

Rules Refresher:

1. Let's try not to make too many rules... ☺
2. Search for four photographs on your own blog that would make a nice set of note cards. They must have appeared on your blog by the time you link up. 
3. Write your post.
4. Link directly to your post below. 
5. Visit ten or so others (at least) and comment. Knowing that new visitors are viewing and commenting is part of the fun. (Permission granted to look and not comment at blogs practicing safe commenting. All those word verifications get very tiring when trying to visit a lot of blogs.)
6. Have fun!


This is going to be so much fun!

Love Vee

  1. Hi Vee, love the happy yellow daffodils. I think flowers will dominate this month! I enjoy this monthly meme. xo

  2. It looks like I can reach out and touch the daffodil, Vee. I had the same thoughts while searching for my photos, and was asking myself "what was I going to do for future notecard posts."lol I hope your snow has left for this season! Thanks for hosting.
    Hugs,

  6. I know yellow is one of your favorite colors, Vee! I love your selection of yellow flowers, especially the forsythia in the snow photo -- was that from last year?

  7. I think your pictures are gorgeous, Vee! I love the daffodils and the forsythia blossoms in the snow. Photography is a challenge, isn't it?

    Thanks so much for hosting this fun note card party!

  13. I had a bit of trouble linking up. My number 9 is from last month. 11 or 12 are for this month. I don't know how to delete 9 and 12. Sorry I messed it up.

  14. I like your notecards ... Especially the forsythia with snow. Your new header is also very nice ... Good job in P. we'll miss it.

    Thanks for hosting another fun party.

  15. Hi Vee - sorry that I posted the wrong post first. Could you delete the first one, #10, from me as it does not relate to your party.

    ReplyDelete
  16. The yellow flowers are so pretty and the notecard feature is really impressive. I was wondering how you achieved that. I can see I need to spend some time getting familiar with Photoscape.

  17. I seem to have a problem with entering linky parties twice. I see I'm not the only one who wants to have one (#15) deleted. Or you could leave it as it says I don't exist anyway :). From now on it's copy and paste! Sorry.

  18. Gorgeous flowers!

    Can't wait to see everyone's posts this month!

  23. The yellow flowers are beautiful Vee. Every now and then I will come up with a picture and think that it might make a nice card...and it is all because of you!

  25. Love your sunny April photos and I hope you don't get anymore snow either!

    Thank you for hosting!

  26. You have chosen another lovely set of photos, Vee...and I love that you used the note card feature! What a cheerful month April is, even when there is snow on the forsythia! :D

    ReplyDelete
  27. Such pretty pictures! I love that Spring colors are so cheerful.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I love the sunny yellow you've chosen for your note cards. They would certainly brighten up a dull day beautifully.

    I hope I have this right. I first thought that the photos were to have been posted this past month. So I chose a set for that. Then I came over here and saw that yours were from other Aprils and I read the rules again.

    So I've chosen past photos but not all from April. Do I have this right or am I really confused?

  29. This is the first time I have seen your Note Card Party. Decided I should join in with the others! Such lovely photos you have, full of yellow. Mine turned out to be a Pink theme.

  39. Hi Vee,

    This is my first time participating in this party and I think the theme is just so fun! Thanks so much for hosting this.

    I love those daffodils and I have some flower pics too, but since this is my first link up there's some other pics to introduce us ... hope that's OK!

    I can't wait to visit and be inspired by the photography of others.

  42. Hi Vee!

    I think this is a smashing idea of yours to feature 4 photos/month. I missed last month but got to see lots of gorgeous shots.

    This is my first time to participate but hopefully, not my last.

    Thank you so much for thinking of a new way to have fun with our cameras.
    I loved all your pictures except that one with the 4 letter word...S-N-O-W!! I sure hope we're done with it.

    fondly,
    Rett

  47. Hi Vee,

    I love this idea (and love your happy daffodils!) but just couldn't seem to do it very well with wordpress. I am sorry....I'll play around and see if I can manage to do this for next week, but am not too hopeful....But I'm visiting and commenting on the blogs of people who are joining in!

    ReplyDelete
  48. OH MY! These are all wonderful! But I'm a bit distressed! I'm about to miss the party! Will the link still be up tomorrow? Please let me know, Vee! This one 'snuck' up on me!

    ReplyDelete

  51. I'll be able to participate again once the wedding is over! Just trying to keep up with quick blog posts and I'm late for the next Mother Heart post.
