A to Z Challenge – 2019 – Q is for Quotes

I was going to use Queen for the letter “Q” and then talk about things related to mothers, because you know we are the Queens of the house.  Then I realized that that was just more of the mini-albums and cards that I had already talked about so I decided to use “Quotes” as my word for today.

I suppose when I am making cards I could leave the insides blank.  That certainly would be easier but then the cards seem unfinished to me.  In the post about Overlays I showed the example of tags I had put in with the sentiment stamped on them.  There is always room for people to add their own messages too, but sometimes I think it takes the “pressure” off of having to think of something to say.  Know what I mean?

I am a collector of quotes and am always on the lookout for stamps and other things with good quotes on them.  One of my sources is the desk top calendars with a different quote on each page.  I have quite a few of those. 

They definitely come in handy and I can usually cut around the quote and fit it into the card or mini-album.  

New Job

Birthday

Birthday/Wedding

Mother’s Day

Graduation

Just because

I also love to use stamps.  Some have just words on them that you can mix and match to make your own quotes and some have the whole sentiment.

This one is a good one because it has a lot of different occasions on it.  
I’ve used this one quite a few times on Thank You cards. 

This is one of my favorites though.  It has quotes from little kids.  “Getting married means sharing your toys.”  That makes perfect sense to me!  Also, “You make me smile all over my face.”  Ever felt like that?

Would you rather have a card that is blank inside so you can write whatever you want or do you like ones with appropriate sentiments already?  Do you have favorite quotes that would be good to use?  Share!

I hope you are getting a chance to visit some of the other 10th Anniversary A to Z Challenge bloggers out there.  I know that some are new and would appreciate the love.  Tomorrow is Saturday so see you here for some R and R!

  1. What a fun idea! I love quotes and often make my own graphics with them on my own photos.

    I’m a quote lover as well. If I like the card I see, coupled with a great quote I go that route when I need it, otherwise, I too enjoy blank cards so I can just write what I’m thinking. A fun quote I like is “A good friend is cheaper than therapy – Thank you for being there for me!”

    I should collect quote for those times when they pass the card around work – you know the ones, for birthdays and such – ’cause I never know what to say!

    What I said before was that I like some quotes, but prefer blank cards because I’m a wordy girl. Let’s see if this comment makes it to your blog.

      Funny that this is the comment that made it to the blog. I found the other two in my trash. I don’t know how WP picks and chooses what comments to show me? I’m glad to know that blank cards would work for some people and maybe I should leave some blank once in a while. Thanks for being persistent, Ally!

    I like some quotes, but often find that blank cards work for me. Of course, I’m a wordy girl so what would you expect?
