Latest Cards!

I've been getting some cards ready for Easter, Mother's Day and spring to take to Creative Wellness. Here are a few of them. Can't resist butterflies. Do you like this one better...

Or this? (The faded butterfly is actually poor photography -- it's as vivid as the others and the one above.)

I love the soft lavender-gray ribbon on this sweet girl.

This bunny enchanted me. He looks just right with the pinks.

This bunny, on the other hand, is just so darned cheery, I couldn't stand it!

This rose was a favorite. I found the background paper when I was at Paper Source in Kansas City with Beth!

The poppy is far brighter, bolder.

For the dog fans, something to delight!

This one is clearly for Mother's Day -- it's a little dark and I'm not sure how well it works. But the music was right.

This one is also -- I've always been fond of these graphics.

So is this one. I love this image.

Or maybe another Easter bit?

I leave you with one of my favorite "little girls" -- she seems made for spring!

I seem to be on a roll, which is tremendously fun. Oh, there just isn't enough time!

NOTE: Now at Chopsticks and String, a look at "Mad World," a fascinating biography about Evelyn Waugh and the people and events that inspired "Brideshead Revisited."

They are all beautiful! Too hard to choose! You are so talented. I think I like the butterfly ones best? or the music one!

Annie said...

The poppy! The poppy! Love it.

I love the fresh blossoms and bold butterflies ... and who couldn't love Mom is Queen or the wistful appeal of the little girl in the closing shot -- wonderful new directions you're finding here! Happy Spring!

I love them all. It does look like you are having fun. And yes, there just isn't enough time to play. I am having a productive week, which feels totally delightful. Oh but the mud we have to tromp through to get to the productive days.

How fun! I admire your productivity, and of course, your creativity continues to amaze me. I love the nostalgic look of these.

You create the most BEAUTIFUL cards, Jeanie! I especially LOVE the butterfly cards, as butterflies are very special to me. Wow... these are all amazing cards! I love your mix of materials. Happy Weekend, my friend ((HUGS))

I'm not so much for butterflies, but that poppy would come right home with me for display. I'd never send it to anyone.

I like the mother's day card you thought might be a little "dark". It's a lovely antidote to all the schlock and sentimentality of that particular day.

And that last little girl is a charmer. It's a really nice collection, with something for everyone!

Jeanie said...

All of the cards are so pretty and unique. I kept going back to the poppy so I have to say that is my favorite.

Judy Winter said...

So lovely!!!! I especially like the top one because I am so into orange these days, but they all make me happy when I look at them! You've found a true card niche, my friend. LOVE!

Bella Rum said...

Love these. They are so charming and they exude springtime. I especially like the second (faded) butterfly. They all have a certain feel to them. Can't describe it, but I like it.

Tamara said...

What beautiful thoughts to send someone... my favourite are the butterflies. I'm just having trouble believing Easter is almost here (I'm still cleaning up after Christmas!). Have a lovely week.

Arti said...

They're all so cute. But if you ask me to choose from the two butterfly ones at the top, I'd pick the first one... simply due to the color scheme and the composition of the picture. I love the one of the little boy giving something to his mom, who's a queen to him. THese are all beautiful, Jeanie.

These are all so delightfully charming! I can see what fun this is...!Each, in it's own way, is so unique and original....Beautifully done, my dear.

Hi Jeanie: Your cards are adorable! Happy Easter! ~Marti

Becca said...

It’s hard to choose, they are all so delightful! Of course as you might imagine I’m partial to the music card (Mother’s Day) and the one with the puppies on it :)

You are SO talented! Miniature works of art they are!

joyce said...

You have a beautiful style of your own....I am always impressed with how clear the images are, when I print from the computer, they don't seem to turn out as clear. I love vintage art too,,,,must check out The Fairy Tale Book!

Barb said...

Who can choose a favorite, except Lucinda is yelling "Rabbits, Rabbits, Rabbits" in my ear! You've been a busy gal.

Roses, Lace and Brocante said...

I love all your cards Jeanie - you're output is fantastic!!!
I need to speed up my process and have some cards tucked away ready for a 'rainy day'!!

Wishing you a very 'Happy Easter"

Joanne Huffman said...

Linda said...
