December Note Card Party

The days are just flying by and it's time again for Vee's Note Card Party.  I wavered between Christmas note cards and wintery note cards.  Since I just took these photos last Saturday, wintery note cards won out.  I did show the barn already in a collage in my last post. 

December's wintery breath is already clouding the pond, 
frosting the pane, obscuring summer's memory... 
~John Geddes

There is nothing in the world more beautiful than 
the forest clothed to its very hollows in snow.  
~William Sharp

Snowflakes are like kisses sent down from heaven.

Winter is the time for comfort, for good food and warmth,
for the touch of a friendly hand and for a talk beside the fire;
it is the time for home.       
~Edith Sitwell

Be sure to stop by A Haven for Vee to see some beautiful photos that would make delightful note cards.  And, thanks to Vee for hosting this fun party!

Thanks for stopping by!
Until next time...
