April Card Party

A beautiful sunny day in the Pacific Northwest - just the right time for a card party. We pick four photos that we have used this month - and make cards from them.  It is hard to pick just four.

Spring time at last!

Hello Joann
I like the sparkle of the water in the first note card, love the spring blossoms and teacup flowers and think the title for your last one is quite timely.

Great cards, JoAnn! I really like the walnut trees, but I do love them all! Happy Spring! xoxo

Vee said...

Wonderful selections...all from this month? The "rule" is not quite that rigid actually. Any photo previously posted is eligible. :D

I love the "you are my cup of tea." And the "Great White Way" of blooming walnut trees is marvelous.

love "happiness" & "you are my cup of tea" ... nice picks. ( :

These are beautiful photos, Joanne. I especially like the grove of walnut trees, and love the allusion to Anne of Green Gables in Vee's comment about the Great White Way.
Are these days not beautiful?

Sally said...

Very pretty! Love the floral tea set!

Wow! The Happiness photo sure is beautiful for a whole set of cards! Love the bird, too...they are all perfect! Sweet hugs!

Beautiful photos. Visiting from Vee's monthly Note Card Party. Your book sounds very interesting. xo

Snap said...

These are all lovely images. I love your selections. I have a *thing* for shorebirds and horses, not to mention tea. The walnut tress are gorgeous. I had forgotten the walnut groves in your area. I'm sure the bee's love them!

Sheila said...

I love all your choices but have never seen a walnut tree so am pleased to see them looking so lovely on your note card!

Roses, Lace and Brocante said...

Beautiful cards JoAnn and all would make pretty note cards!
My fave is "You are my cup of tea" - it's gorgeous and has given me an idea to make some of my own to send to friends!

These are all beautiful JoAnn. I love those walnut trees in bloom! And the teacup of pansies is pretty. They'd all make nice notecards. Pamela

Very cheerful and light. I love the teacup!!

A great set. I love the teacup and pansies ( or as I call them "face flowers")

Very pretty collection of images this month. I LOVE your photo of the flowering walnut trees. Beautiful!

Your NOTE CARDS speak one word to me: Peaceful.
Well done!

Lovely note cards --- each unique and special as they speak of the glories of SPRING! I really love the pansy and teacup picture.

I've never seen a walnut tree in bloom! Thanks for sharing these beautiful pictures!

I would love to read your book. My husband has talked and dreamed about moving to Alaska. I don't know where the idea came from but it has stuck with him for years now. Maybe one day we'll end up there.

Have a wonderful day!
