Wordless Wednesday; Handmade Greeting Cards

Ma has had a difficult and heartbreaking week because Grandma passed away, so I'm taking over today's Wordless Wednesday for her.

Phoebe takes over this week's Wordless Wednesday
Ma's Niece is getting married next month so Ma asked her good friend Paulette to make a special wedding card for her.  Paulette makes beautiful cards by hand.  She doesn't sell them, she just makes them for family and special friends as a hobby.  Aren't they lovely?


Paulette made the yellow card in the middle for Ma's birthday last month.  She wrote a really sweet message inside.


Paulette made the other two as wedding cards for Ma's niece.  Ma loved them so much she couldn't choose just one, she wanted both of them!  So she decided to use one as the Bridal Shower card and the other as the Wedding card. 


It was not easy to decide which one to use as the wedding card and which one for the bridal shower.  These may seem like unusual cards for a Bridal Shower and a Wedding but you see, Ma's Niece is a Marine Scientist - aren't these two cards just perfect for her, with these adorable little sea creatures on them?


Ma remembers when her niece was a little girl.  She loved sitting in front of Ma's salt water fish tank, staring at the seahorses, star fish, and other critters in the tank.  Ma's Niece became a certified Scuba diver by age 13 and well, the rest is history.  Ma is so proud of her beautiful Niece!


Which card would you choose for the  Bridal Shower, and which one for the wedding?  Leave us a comment and tell us your choice, we always love hearing from you!

  2. I'm so sorry to hear about Grandma passing away. Be sure to give your Ma some extra TLC and kisses, okay?

    The cards are beautiful and so creative. I'm glad your niece has followed her dreams too. We tried having a salt water tank a few years ago and gave it our best shot, but had to call it quits after about a year. I really miss our yellow tang and the peppermint shrimp the most.

    Sending good thoughts and prayers to all of you.

    1. Thanks for the kind words, Ma is getting lots of extra love from us. I love yellow tangs, they're so beautiful. Salt water tanks are not that easy to keep.

  5. First, I'm so sorry for your loss. I hope you're doing ok - that's heartbreaking. The cards are so beautiful - what a talent. I would go with the green palette for the wedding invite and the red palette for the shower. Hugs.

  7. I'm so sorry to hear about your grandmother. A loss like that is just never easy. It's wonderful that you have such a happy event to focus on. Maybe that will make things a little easier! And I love those cards. I make my own too, but mine aren't nearly as nice as these! I don't know how you'd ever pick.
