May Note Card Party ~~~~~


Good gracious, another month has flown and 
it's time to join Vee's Note Card party for the 
beautiful month of May.
I dried a new batch of roses, some purchased from that favorite grocery 
store (if you're in the US you know which one!), some from my garden. 
I used one photo for my Mother's Day post and decided the extras would 
make a good selection for this month's box of all-purpose cards.







I'm displaying the roses under one of the old glass domes I've started 
collecting - seems a perfect place to keep them dust-free.  
I have more roses drying in the potting shed so don't be surprised if 
this small bunch gets larger.


Joining the party HERE at Vee's - hurry on over to see more cards and perhaps add some of your own - we'd love to see them.

  10. Very Victorian I think. But, then, aren't dried roses always Victorian?

  12. Oh my goodness...I love what you did with the dried roses. I also dry all of mine and have a lot of them. I never thought of arranging the under a cloche! Great idea...I might just have to "borrow" your idea! Your photos and the effects you used make for a very lovely set of cards!

  22. What beautiful cards - and how beautifully displayed!
    I have been hammering pansies and making cards with the results. They come out very well.

  23. Your dried roses are beautiful. I had to smile when you said not to be surprised if the bouquet gets larger.
    One of my cousins always dried the roses her husband would bring her until she had this huge bouquet of memories.
    She even saved some from the roses at my mother's memorial service and added to the bouquet. It was so beautiful.
    I haven't been good at saving them because they get dusty. Great idea to put under a dome. I must do that. I even have
    a dome just right and waiting. Thanks, m
