February Note Card Party

Certainly we are out of touch with the world here in snowtime. But many of our happiest memories are winter memories. Each day is a sort of triumph. It takes so much effort and planning merely to exist and keep warm. But see, we have been comfortable, we have been content! And each night we go to our beds with a sense of having truly lived that day.
~Elizabeth Coatsworth 





Guess that you can see what might be on my mind these days. Now to see what's on yours!

  6. What beautiful snowy scenes, Vee! I think our winter may be over with here in Texas. However, I enjoy looking at your pretty pics, especially the first one, although the last one looks like your grand is having a ball! Thanks for hosting your fun party. xo

  7. Beautiful images for note cards, Vee, especially with the sentiments you've added. Since you've had (and have) so much snow, might as well get all the mileage you can out of it. It is beautiful and those of us who long for a wee bit more are happy to see the photos. Thanks again for hosting!

  12. Lovely winter cards! I should "order a set." Keep looking up is how my husband signs all his correspondence. You've done a nice job. Not sure why I had trouble before but all is well here now!

  14. So nice, Vee. And next month I want to see spring flowers. ♥ I messed up on the notecards. I had my collage made and then realized that it was supposed to be four, not six. Oh well, hopefully I can learn to follow instructions by next month. :-))

  15. The photos are beautiful Vee. I know everyone is probably tired of it by now, back there. It has been snowing hard just above me at Snoqualmie Pass. They have had to close I-90 several times for avalanche control. I can hear the big guns late at night sometimes. They really work hard to keep the roads safe. We just have had a dusting of snow down here but they say we might get some in a day or too.

  16. Vee, thank you so much for letting me join your card party with my watercolor note cards. I just love your beautiful photos of Winter. Living in Southern CA we are experiencing some spring colors early. I'm enjoying visiting all your friends and their note card photos.

  23. Hi Vee, Your winter scenes make beautiful notecards. I have always felt an appreciation for the visual beauty of snow. My favorite is your first card. Love the fresh snow on the trees, Vee. It's stunning! :)

  27. Although I'm getting really tired of winter (as I know you are too!) your snow photos are just lovely. Great choices for winter notecards...

  28. Beautiful Vee!! I especially love the "Keep Looking Up" card! I was going to link this time but alas, I've got too many cards on my post - maybe next time, now that I sort of know how to do it!!? Might need you to coach me through it when the time comes. Hope you are having a wonderful time with your grand boys. You must be having a very busy but wonderful week!

  29. These are really beautiful snow scenes Vee and are great notecards. Have fun with the party!! I've visited a few that I follow anyway.

  30. You know, your snowy note cards are wonderful, but come August they may be life savers on a hot summer day! I love the words you have put on your cards Vee. Great addition!

  31. Dear Vee,
    I'm so excited to have participated in your note card party for the first time!!. :). Your cards are simply amazing!!

  32. Pretty photos for note cards! I love the touch of pink in the first photo. Thanks for hosting this fun party!

  33. Oh, Vee, I really love your cards this week! I always like them, but these just seem exceptional!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Best note cards you have ever done, IMO. Considering how many of your offerings I love and remember (like my previous favorite which was the one of the boys that you edited.) I love these and would very definitely send them as cards. I have said often that it's for no small reason that the "down" seasons of our lives are often called winter seasons. You show a beauty and encouragement in the winter with these that really and truly restores the soul. Great job, Vee.

  35. Great choices Vee - many of us choosing winter scenes and so interesting to note the differences in areas around the country. Love the last one with your grandson - children love the snow and it's probably doubly inspiring to conquer those steep hills with the Olympics going on! I also love 'Keep Looking Up' - for some reason trees are really inspiring when we get this perspective - makes one realize how tiny we actually are in the big scheme of things.

    Looks like my link didn't work again - don't know why that happens. Is there a way you can delete it and I'll try it again? Thanks Vee. Good showing today - we should start a card publishing company perhaps!

  36. Wonderful pictures of snow Vee, makes me miss being back home. We are on our way though back to Canada and taking the slow road. Winter scenes are so much fun, love the light you captured through the trees. I'll try and make a post but it might be rather short as this android isn't supportive of pictures,lol

  41. p.s. me again...I still cannot link up. I'm sure it is a blogger problem. I have many blogger problems at present but just want to say thanks for hosting and I did try to link up!

  42. These are so beautiful! Winter photos have always been a favorite of mine.

  43. Love your winter photos Vee. You have to print out that last one for sure.

  44. I don't understand...are your photos for others to use as notecards? I visited some other blogs as well and the photos are wonderful!

    1. No. Thank you for asking. It was originally a way to feature well loved photos from the past. Trouble is that many ran out of material so it has since shifted to featuring at least one photo from the past and as many as three new ones. Some of us have printed up our note cards and use them for gifts or personal stationery. I was very pleased with those that I had done. I'm sure that you would as well.

  45. Hello sweet Vee!!! My goodness girl...it's been SO long since I've visited, I should be kicked to the curb! I cannot EVEN believe all of the snow you all have ~ and we here in Atlanta can't handle two little inches! And send in the ice? We are helpless. I tried commenting on some of your older posts but comments weren't allowed but I just wanted to visit and tell you hello and wish you well!!! I hope you and John are doing so very good, staying cozy and feeling wonderful. I've been in a bit of a slump but hope that spring will pull me out ~ love you so sweet friend!!! xxoo, Dawn
