~Notecards for May~

Written by Sue, Tuesday, May 20, 2014                A beautiful day, sunny and warm 70's

I call this month's note cards....
~God's little Creatures, Designed and Created by Him~

~I am praying for you~

 ~If I can do it, so can you~


~Congratulations I knew you could do it.~


Hang on, things will soon change

~My note card box top~

I don't think I did this post justice, my only excuse is, I am so busy here at the farm, but I could not let the day go by without joining one of my favorite friend's party, and the  hostess with the mostess. Thank you Vee for hosting. I will be by this evening to visit all of the guests, as we are working on a major work project today. 
Blessings, 
Sue
Please join us at A Haven for Vee, and share photos that you think would make great notecards.

I loved this post and the sentiments you chose to go with those creatures!

Vee said...

These are the very kinds of cards I so often need to send. Hallmark needs to start paying attention! Really cute, Sue. Love'em.

Christine said...

OH, you DID do it justice.
those little creatures are so interesting. We don't have them over here in the Pacific Northwest.
So interesting!

(Thank you for your prayers and kind words these past few weeks. It meant a lot to me.)

Delightful note cards and as a nature lover, I'd want to receive one of them.

Your cards & captions are wonderful, Sue! You have captured a part of nature that most of us overlook. My favorite is the praying mantis.

Smiles,

Dear Sue, I love your pictures of the insects. Mary gets such a kick out of praying Mantis and I love to photograph dragon flies too! I also loved, loved your post about your mom's hands. So touching, it made me want to cry. Thank you for your encouraging words on my blog down through the years. You are a gem and so glad to know you through your blog!

Debbie said...

These shots are amazing. I have never been able to find and shot detail like this. I love them.

Michele @ The Nest at Finch Rest said...

Your pics are amazing - there is no way I could get so close to those neat but kinda creepy bugaboos.

I know, I am such a city kid, haha.

Love your sentiments on your cards too - esp the "hang in there" one, so cute!!
