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!
Rather late in the day for me to be blogging, but my card is done so it feels right to just blah, er, blog about it and then go clean up and start anew tomorrow. I had to stop and keep a doctor's appointment with a new GI doctor and so the sun had gone down behind the clouds by the time I got back to take the photo. (It was an hour and a half wait, mind you without a cell phone on me, and it made me realize that for most of my adult life I didn't own a cell phone and yet I try and fail to imagine ever having lived without one! Gave me pause, which helped to pass the time. Speaking of time, you don't have all day, move along.)
I don't think we're supposed to make cards about a soup opera. Well, it doesn't actually say that, so I take that back. Whatever the theme, we're supposed to use pastels and black. The sponsor is:
That's a new company to me and I'm happy to hear about them. Cute stamps! Since I don't have any of their images to use at the moment, I did this:
It's a nice manly card with a feminine side, fitting for the modern dude. I used two shades of the pretty SU DSP in the subtle collection to represent the sea and the sky. I drew the seagulls in by hand because it seemed a nice touch.
I'm so tickled to welcome two new followers! Please check out Vicky Hayes and Michelle Lupton as soon as possible! They both do amazing things if you ask me!
Please enjoy ~ and thank you for stopping by. Special thanks to you if you took the time to leave me a comment!
