Little Green Apples

It's time again for one of my favorite link parties...
                       
  NOTE CARD PARTY  over at A HAVEN FOR VEE.


You should go by and check out all the cute ideas for NOTE CARDS....
Vee asks that you use 4 of your favorite photos that would look
COOL as cards.
 My NOTE CARDS, this month, are entitled
LITTLE GREEN APPLES
"Love doesn't grow on trees like apples in Eden - 
it's something you have to make. And you must use your imagination too."
"There is more to sex appeal than just measurements. 
I don't need a bedroom to prove my womanliness. 
I can convey just as much sex appeal, picking apples off a tree or standing in the rain. "
AUDREY HEPBURN 
"We are born believing. 
A man bears beliefs as a tree bears apples. "
RALPH WALDO EMERSON 

“Call it crazy, or just chicken salad.”

Thanks, ya'll for stopping in at SWEET NOTHINGS today.
I hope you will come back soon.....
and I hope you have a
GREEN APPLE and  CHICKEN SALAD kind of day.
XOXOXO, bj

...also joining  the fun at
REDNESDAY

Cute! It sounds like a fun project. I usually just buy note cards because it's quick and easy. But, these are much cuter!

Beth said...

I think I would like a chicken salad sandwich and a granny smith apple right about now. :-)

All pretty pics BJ and those apples kinda look a lot like pie to me:@)

There is nothing like chicken salad with nuts and a sliced green apple. You rocked the note cards BJ:}]

Thank you bj! I have viewed a video and downloaded step by step instructions on threading the bobbin. Now why didn't I think of that, I google everything else. :-)

Jackie said...

Very nice BJ.

My Little Home and Garden said...

What a fun and clever post featuring your green apples! The salad certainly looks tasty.

Vee said...

These are so refreshingly cool looking...all the green...and so seasonal...all the green...and simply delightful in every way. I like the borders you created, too. I could happily have this set of note cards.

I'm back! I love the apple photos...we just got the first Illinois apples at an area orchard on Saturday. They are Honeycrisps, my favorite. We've been gone it seems like forever and I still am finishing the laundry and ironing from the trip. I have a story to tell you...will save it for an email in the next few days.

The colors of your apples are so vibrant! And your chicken salad picture looks so yummy.

Stacking the apples must have been fun. I like that photo the best.
Having said that, though, they are all great and I enjoyed them very much.

Love everything about this one from the quotes to the photos to the funky green frames around them. It all came together perfectly to make a great post.

I love the idea of finding quotes to go with a picture theme. The Audrey Hepburn quote is hands down my favorite.

Love your theme, dear friend! Your color palette and choice of quotes took these over the top in cuteness! Notice you've made a change in your header, as well! I'm intriqued with the Pears & Hot Dogs???
Fondly,
Pat

These are so cute! I love the frames. I also like the Audrey Hepburn quote. I've read several of her quotes, she was a smart lady!

Jo said...

Oh, boy.....Your chicken salad look so delicious! It's just perfect for a summer's day. I love the walnuts and bright red strawberries. What a feast!

Thank you, bj, for your visits and comments. Yes, we could have a ball thrifting together! I just discovered the most incredible "treasure trove" thrift shop yesterday. You pay by the pound for nearly everything in the shop. I spent $5 and came home with so many wonderful goodies. You would have loved it!
Have a happy day, my friend,
Blessings,
Carolynn
