Card – Weekly Photo Challenge

unnamed3

Week 2 of the Weekly Photo Challenge has indeed been very challenging and I haven’t enjoyed it as much as last week’s.  The theme is ‘Card’.  I have pondered and pondered and I was going to go to the local art shop to take a photo of all the coloured card but I have hurt my arm so am not driving and so no visit to the art shop.

Instead I have dug out my Memory Box and the photograph above is of a selection of cards from my family.  There are birthday cards, Christmas cards, Mothers Days cards.  I don’t keep the cards every year but every so often there is one that feels special or I am feeling particularly sentimental.  My favourites are the ones the boys have made me over the years often featuring flowers whether home-made or downloaded from the internet.  These days being busy men they don’t have time, or I am sure the inclination, to make cards but their bought cards are as special to me as I know they spend time choosing them. Regardless of whether they are made or bought they come with love and that is what really matters.

For more ‘Card’ photo blog posts visit Life and Thyme. Next week’s theme is ‘Awkward’ which actually might be more challenging than ‘Card’!

    Lovely memories………

  2. It was a struggle this week wasn’t it? Still, lovely sentiment and so nice to see your special stash of cards 🙂

  3. These themes are going to cause a lot of furrowed brows, and I suspect, some really interesting responses!

    I have a pile of cards waiting to be sorted… fortunately mostly Christmas cards which are readily recycled 😉 Sometimes it’s difficult to decide which ‘special’ cards you want to keep, isn’t it?

      I am very quick with those decisions or I would never throw things away

  5. Sentimental posts are extra special and this warms my heart. I know there will come a day when mine are too busy or just not interested in making cards as well; for now I’ll cherish their efforts and count my blessings. We just never know when the last time is actually that. My oldest child doesn’t ask me to snuggle anymore….all as it should be I suppose.
    I have my eyes open for ‘awkward’ also and agree, it is going to be a challenge!
