August Notecard Party–Tall and Skinny or Short and Wide!

I love making banners and I keep mine altogether on my desktop in a folder called bansandbutts. I did a post on it HERE!

And one thing you can know for sure, if the banner has a mountain scene, I’m in Western North Carolina.

When you see a Florida State Park, I’m here in Florida.

And if I’ve just been to the beach, it will probably have the ocean.

And the Postcard banner I have up there now is a copy cat from BJ’s Sweet Nothings! She helped me! Thanks girlfriend!!! (who knows were I am! I might be mailing myself to an exotic location! lol)

I’m joining Vee at a Haven for Vee

for the August Notecard party!

I wonder if these would make good notecards? And are they skinny or wide? heehee!

I have always enjoyed your banners. How great the BJ helped you create the post card one!

Chel @ Sweetbriar Dreams said...

I love your banners, they are always so sunny, warm and inviting. I especially love the postcard one as it feels as though I am getting a postcard from you. xx

Bella said...

I love your banners, especially those in Florida. It's so beautiful down there!!

Kim@Snug Harbor said...

I'd love for you to do a tutorial on how you make your beautiful banners. I made the one for my blog a long time ago and I don't have a clue how I did it. LOL! It's time for an update I think.

Kathy said...

They would be perfect for those cards that come with a little bookmark gift inside. Add a tassel to the end and you're all set!

Shelia said...

These are all so pretty, Diane! :) You did good.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Pamela Gordon said...

I like these Diane. They all speak summer, sunshine and vacation. I love your new header with the postcard too. Have a great day! Pam

bj is a sweet thing - (not a sweet nothing.) ;)

Each of your banners is wonderful. As a beach lover, the ocean scenes are my favorites, but I like them all.

Linda aka Crafty Gardener said...

I love to create banners too .. at least one for each month. Your postcard one is lovely.

Sue said...

Beautiful note cards indeed! Thanks for sharing.

Happyone said...

They would also make great bookmarks.

Geralyn Adams said...

Such pretty banners! Each one definitely captures a mood. :)

Snap said...

your banners make lovely note cards ... and we can keep track of you! ;)

Vee said...

I really like the one you have now because it is so unique. I think NC is gorgeous. However, when I close my eyes and think of "Lavender Dreams," I see you walking on the beach looking for seashells.

Jeanne said...

I have no clue how to make a banner but will learn someday. These make wonderful note cards or bookmarks.

Creations by Marie Antoinette and Edie Marie said...

That is an awesome postcard banner,
BUT please don't mail yourself anywhere. No telling where you might wind up in...LOL.
I went and looked at all your banners. Love them of course and I love that you have them in a folder called bansandbutts...How cool is that.
Thank you Diane, for your visit. and lovely comments. It brighten up my day.
Pleasant Dreams Dearest,
Marie Antoinette

Lavender Cottage said...

The post card banner is so neat Diane, and I like the mountains and ocean too.

Sally Kelly said...

All gorgeous shots!

Susie said...

I love the picture you took of the water with the black swan...you should use it as a header too. I am like Vee, I think of you walking along the shore.xoxo,Susie

Lauren @ My Wonderfully Made said...

I love your changing banners -- I get tired of mine but I always forget how to change it and by the time I research and remember -- it's too much trouble HAHA!

Ceekay-THINKIN of HOME said...

I love that banner....always loved it on BJ's also!!

Blackberry Lane said...

Very pretty.

Donna said...

Haha, I guess I missed that post! These are wonderful. I really like that one of the beach, searching for seashells. Oh, and those NC mountains seem to be calling out to me too!

I just started doing a few "stitched" photos in photoshop, where I put them together to make a panorama. But I've only done 3 so far. Mmm, I need to do another one so that I can have a panorama theme in a future note card party! Mind if I copy cat you, LOL?

podso said...

You remember those funny greeting cards in the long envelope? I am seeing them more and more, so yes, I think your long rectangular cards would make lovely cards. I really like your new header! That would also be a nice card! I wonder where you are, but I was in the mts here earlier today!

Irene said...

These would indeed make great postcards.

Betsy@My Salvaged Treasures said...

So that's how we'll always know where you are! I really like the Florida postcard and all the beautiful scenery you use to create your banners.

Noelle the dreamer said...

Too funny Diane! You won't be able to hide from us! Still, the postcard banner is just bang on!
Wherever you are now, enjoy! Life is good!!

Linda @ A La Carte said...

I always enjoy your headers and yes, I kind figured out that it's usually 'where you are at the moment'. Now I do love this post card.
Hugs,
Linda

Peggy Jones said...

Just love visiting all over the place with you. Our daughter and family are building a new house on Hilton Head Island hope we get there soon. We haven't been to the ocean in a few years. Great cards. Yes that size is around now. I like this linky party very much.

Wsprsweetly Of Cottages said...

..and by the way...that bj can do ANYTHING! I am such an admirer of hers. Your header is lovely. HOW wish I knew how to do my own.

Lorrie said...

I love your banners. Note cards would have to be skinny and long, I think - with special envelopes!
My banner is in dire need of a makeover, but I am uninspired and can't make the time to do it. I missed summer and now I might as well wait for autumn to make a new one.

Cameron said...

I just love the photos you take of all the wonderful things you see! They make excellent banners that are just so you....beautiful :)

Musings from Kim K. said...

You are always having fun! Thanks for sharing the secret code on your various locations. I'm addicted to changing my blog banners on a monthly basis. It's usually vintage holiday related. Hugs!

suzie jay sroka said...

Hello! I am back in blogland still at http://itch2stitchdotcom.blogspot.co.uk/ but with a different name .. the cock-eyed arty miss.. I see that your blog is still as beautiful as ever! Suzie xx

Melissa Gill said...

I like your banners and I have to agree with you, they are fun to make! That's neat how your banners give a clue to where you are. :)

Jennifer said...

I love your banners. They are very nice. I need to get more creative with mine. :)

Susan Nowell @ My Place to Yours said...

They would make pretty notecards! We don't see to many horizontal "skinny" cards anymore, but they were very popular many years ago!

valerietilsten59.blogspot.com said...

I love the way you always change your banners..
some would make great post cards..
It makes it interesting.

Kat Griffin said...

lovely note card for sure I love the mountain scenes very much. my guys (boy scouts) hike the A T in Virginia and Georgia...looks a lot like that picture. I did a painting of one from a photo my hubby took of a sunset on Springer mountain in Georgia

Jeanne Baney said...

I don't change my banner often, but I made the couple of them I have myself. Like you, they are from trips! My current banner is from Key West. You do a wonderful job with them! I followed your link to a previous post to see them all!

Patty Antle said...

I love the header - I recognized it right away from bjs. Your banners are very pretty. The views are just wonderful. They make great note cards.

Sheila said...

Your Banners are wonderful. My sister often sends me a cheery note on the back of a postcard and I do think these would be much appreciated by your friends. Keep smiling!

JG said...

What a great collection you have made!

Love the fun banners! They ALL would make great cards! I'll have to check out the link you mentioned. You are kind of like Waldo! "Where in the world is Diane?"

Chatty Crone said...

What a great idea. I did not know that. I saw they changed, but didn't know it meant where you were!
