A site for my handmade cards, accompanied by my photos and written meanderings which are occasionally witty, often tongue-in-cheek, and rarely profound. Beginning in June 2013, you'll also see lots of NBUS, which is an acronym I coined for Never-Before-Used-Schtuff. Feel free to join in, use the acronym, and use up your NBUS too! Thanks for coming by! Have a beverage and enjoy!

Ace of Hearts & Flowers

Hello, Stamplings!

I hope you are having a great weekend wherever you are! Papa and I are having fun with the grandtwins over the long President's Day weekend! The weather will be beautiful so we'll be walking on the beach, fishing along the river, and hiking among the redwoods, making memories!

Beforehand I made a coupla more Twofer cards for you. I mean, I can't very well ask you to keep making heart cards until February 24th for the Twofer Card Challenge if I don't stretch myself, too! I'm enjoying finding ways my heart stamps and dies can be used other than once a year for Valentines!

I bought this NBUS stamp and die set (cough) years ago from CAS-ual Fridays because my sisters and I love playing cards when we get together, but I put the set away and completely forgot about it! And it's such a cute set! The border is Washi tape from Mike's and I've glossified the small hearts to make them look like enamel embellies.

BTW, the set comes with lots of sediments! This sediment, "You're Aces" can be used for a graduation or any type of celebratory occasion card, or a thank you card, or an encouragement card, etc. ~ and it works for both gals and guys.


Using the same exact hearts, I made fragile long-stemmed flowers for this airy birthday card. The stems and leaves are from MFT's "Build-able Bouqet." Simply adding some matching matting, doing some winking, and adding a butterfly 3D sticker finishes this pretty card!

HEARTfelt thanks to all of you who have already played in Twofer Card Challenge #2!! If you haven't played yet (or you want to play again), I hope I have inspired you! Mwah!

My little heart flowers remind me of these sweet bulbs blooming again in the back yard, so here are my annual photos for you!


Enjoy your day!  No, seriously, enjoy!  LITS!*
