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!

Hammy's At Pixie's Playground ~ Cousin Hammie's a What?!

Hello, Stamplings!

We've had a wee bit of rain! It wasn't enough to completely extinguish all the fires, but it helped the firefighters tremendously which is a huge relief. I'm feeling better with the clear air and return of blue skies. I hope where you are, things are sunny, too!

I am delighted to be Guest Designing for my very good friend Di over at Pixie's Crafty Workshop. Of course, Hammy wanted to be involved since he went all the way to England with me to meet a lot of the Pixie Playmates last year! Not to mention, Di has her own special critter named Parsnip and the two of them are fast friends.
Isn't him so cute eating his cookie?! The NBUS hamster stamp is from the "Hammie Coffee & Tea" set by Your Next Stamp. Naturally we HAD to have this set of stamps and dies! The fun NBUS sediment is from Riley and Company. 

The background dotted pp is from SU and the watercolor pink paper is from Lawn Fawn. I just love it when I can stamp directly onto a piece of pp and use that schtuff up! Hammie is die cut and popped up for a little bit of dementia.

Snippets Playground BadgeIf you have been friends here for a long time, you are familiar with Pixie's and it's been great to see a lot of you join in the fun at the Playground over the years. Di and her challenge regulars are a hoot! They will all make you feel welcome and half the fun is reading their comments! It's definitely a friendly place to make friends and it always feels good to use something from that scrappile!

If you are not familiar with Di and her challenge, the only requirement for playing is that you use at least one scrap (snippet) on your creation. Just like I encourage you to use your NBUS, Di encourages you to use your leftovers and she's been doing so for a long time which we all appreciate! (Of course, when I say leftovers, I mean papers and ribbons and schtuff, but Di is also pleased when you reheat last night's dinner for today's lunch.)

Thank you, Di, for the opportunity to be a guest designer at the Playground!


And here's my twof ... wait a second. What?
Are those vampire teeth?! We don't really know this branch of the family very well, thank goodness, but every family does have their little monster!!

Take it, it's yours

Real quick. I've seen this car driving around in our neighborhood for quite a while, but until now, I've never had the chance to catch it when it was just sitting in the person's driveway!
How about that?! Hammy got quite becited, so one of these days we are going to go by and introduce ourselves!


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!
