Shabby-Shabby~August Note Card Party

Welcome! April, May, June, July, and now August. =D






Photoscape was used for special effects: antique photo and the note card frame.

Can't wait to see what you come up with this month!

Love Vee

  27. I need your help, Vee. I just checked my link and Mr. Linky is not working for me. It tells me that I need to have 'http://' in my Url??? I tried that and no luck. It's past my bedtime. I'll turn this problem over to you and hopefully you'll know what to do. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Hmmm. Sorry for the third comment, but in looking at the comment above, some things didn't show up. I know about the http:// but there were other symbols and numbers, too. Maybe you can link for me!

  29. Vee, I'll take a set! The flowers are gorgeous. Thanks for hosting!

    Joining as late as ever for your fun party, Vee. I look forward to it every month because it always seems to drag me out of doldrums when I'm in them.

    (And I'm in them...)

    Heading out to visit now.

  36. Vee,

    These are just gorgeous! The second one is my favorite. I love the way you have edited them so that they are soft, feminine, and just so beautiful. Truly note card worthy!

    ReplyDelete
  37. I haven't participated lately as I wasn't taking many pictures but I LOVE looking at yours.

    I must learn to do some of the special affects with my pics, so pretty.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Oh Vee! I love these, with the faded crackle effect. These are beautiful.

  39. Vee, your notecards are STUNNING. I want to look into the program you mentioned. I love them. My first time linking to your notecard party. Happy to be here. ~ Abby

  40. Gorgeous note cards, Vee! I love the softness of each photo and your special effects.

    My contributions are a "better late than never addition" that I just put up, and I hope you don't mind the two add ons on the end but I needed to complete a story!:) As you can imagine, things are hectic around here. I am in the process of throwing away, recycling and donating lots and lots of stuff! Wish me luck!

  42. Love your beautiful flowers! Thanks for hosting. I'm looking forward to seeing what everyone else did, too.

  43. Vee, These are so beautiful. They have a wispy look that is very romantic. As well as note cards, I think these would make awesome giftwrap. I would love to receive a gift wrapped in the clematis paper!
    So lovely, Thanks for hosting,
    Ginger

  44. Romantic cards, indeed, Vee!

  45. oops. please delete #32. That's July's link.
    #33 is August. I can't figure out how to do it, or maybe don't have the authority to do so?>

  46. Vee I just love the special effects you did of the flowers. The photos look really lovely.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Hi Vee,

    I love the antique effect you've applied to your note card images!! They look like something you would pay a lot for in the card stores. :)

    Thanks so much for hosting the party every month; I enjoy participating.

    Hugs,

    Denise at Forest Manor

    I keep thinking about how I need to learn to do all the 'magic' you do with your photos.
    Your flowers really would make beautiful notecards.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Beautiful selections Vee. I love the editing you used. They would be perfect note cards.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Your cards are so pretty and soft, Vee. I love the effect you used. And mine are pink, too, but much different than yours. I need to play with Photoscape some more.

    I'm late to the party, but I prepared the post before leaving on vacation last week, just didn't post date it, left it in draft in case I needed to change something. I'm sitting in Starbucks, in Red Deer, catching up on a little internet time, so I'll respond to a few of your recent comments.

    No, I never drink coffee - it does funny things to my head and heart. I've even stopped drinking caffeinated tea. Sigh. So I have my steamed milk beside me again. It's been a chilly day here, but it's sunny and supposed to warm up again for tomorrow.

    I didn't see any of the MGCC while in Chilliwack because I knew some of them were busy and we were spending time with family. Although, I did go to Winks, the store they've recommended and met Kathy there - whom I had never met.

    Have a great week, Vee, and thank you for hosting this most fun party. I don't know how much visiting I'll get done until we get home, but I didn't want to miss the entire party.
