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!

An Irish Smile

Hey! How's it going?

Don't forget the April Boo-Boo Hop/NBUS Challenge #11 is coming soon!

Happy St. Patrick's Day to you, whether Irish or not! I'm Irish by marriage and have a blessing for you below, but first I made you a smile, surrounded by a leaf wreaf:
For this simple OLC, I lightly traced an oval die with a pencil and then stamped the leaves around it. The leaves and the sediment are from a NBUS Concord & 9th set called, "Love You. Mean It." The sweet trio of rasp berries is from Rubber Stamp Tapestry, all glossied up. A Crop-a-Dile chomped the corners for me.



Happy St. Patrick's Day!

I actually posted this card a coupla years ago. I think it might have been one of my first attempts at smooching. I hope you enjoy this reshared Irish blessing!
I also like this sweet, compassionate, and tender blessing:
😄 I actually have a stamp that says that. I'm sorry I didn't have time to make you a card with it, but I know you'll enjoy the blessing anyway.

Wait. What?

Speaking of limping, it appears the Mister and I have such a compatible marriage that we take turns being incapabilitated. I'm six weeks out from my surgery, feeling spry and dry and back to jumping up and down when the UPS truck stops out front. So guess what happened? 

Two days ago the Mister's back went out. He nearly collapsed from the pain and he has been pretty much flat on his back in bed waiting until we can see the doctor this morning. Poor guy. He has been faithfully doing exercises every single day for two years so this wouldn't happen, so he's very frustrated. Your prayers and positive vibes are very much appreciated. 


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

As always, thank you for coming by to visit the Playhouse and special thanks to you if you take the time to join as a follower!  Please let me know you came by so I can be sure to return the flavor! Under the circumstances, it might be a while ...

*Life is too short!
