How is the weather in your part of the world?

Your note cards are beautiful. We had two days of much needed rain but today is sunny. I have not had time to enjoy it but that is okay.

Great shots of the ducks!

We were cold and rainy but the last two days have been warm and sunny!! Love the ducks and beautiful pictures!!!

Vee said...

Success all the way around! I always sigh with relief when Mr. Linky goes up without a hitch and you did link.

I love the duck paddling around in that rippling water in the second photo. His (her?) feathers match the ripples.

Our weather is like yours. If you get some good stuff send it up...thanks!

Carol said...

What lovely scenes! I could enjoy Vee's note cards in any one of them!
Our rain has cleared. Sunny and lovely the rest of the week here!

Very cute duck photo! They would make a nice series, and I like your artsy last one! I think the weather is improving!

Beth said...

Great shots! My favorites are the first two and especially shot #2. That one's a definite wow!

Sallie (FullTime-Life.com said...

Those are just wonderful -- I sure wish I knew how to make real note cards out of some of my pictures (and all of yours ;>))... of course I would never do that,even if I did know how, but your pictures here are definitely lovely enough to be sold as such!

Kati said...

So pretty! I especially like the last one. So cute! :)

Susan (My Place to Yours) said...

Beautiful reflection in that first photo!

Your note cards are just beautiful. Love them. It got all the way up to 70º today. A virtual heatwave in this area. It is supposed to be nice tomorrow, too. This time of year we never know what is happening. One county North of us it is supposed to freeze tonight. UGH- xo Diana

Betsy@My Salvaged Treasures said...

Pretty photos Diane. and fun effects too. It was around 80 here today and should be about the same tomorrow. I know the heat is coming soon, so I enjoy this weather while I can.

Absolutely lovely. I love the technique used on the apples. The ducks are so neat. Great note cards.
I am visiting in Illinois, very nice here. Hot and dry in Savannah.
Hugs, Ginger

Poppy said...

I love how beautifully these pictures are taken and the photo editing of the apple vignette:) Love the greenery against the backdrop of blue skies and the ducks. It is raining here with overcast skies but supposed to get better towards the weekend:)Thanks for the inspiration. Happily following you back through GFC. Hugs,Poppy

Super Earthling said...

What absolutely perfect photos to use as note cards! It's hard to choose a favorite, but I think it would have to be the ducks. Lovely! :)

Robin @ Happily Home, After said...

The sky's reflection on the lake as the ducks swim through it ... you captured such a peaceful, perfect moment there, I feel refreshed as though I actually inhaled some of the mountain air. Lovely images for notecards, thanks for sharing.

Lovely Diane! We're finally drying out here in the Midwest -- have finally gotten my gazebo up and I sit there as I type this enjoying the breezy, sunny evening.

Hope the rains give you a break soon. We are really heating up now but the high ozones gives me a major headache. LOL

Have a great weekend.

What perfect selections for note cards. I would frame the one with the orange flowers. Just the perfect touch of color. Nice art work there too.
