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!

CAS-ual Fridays #46 "Name That Tune"

I'm posting later and later in the day.  I'd like to tell you it's because I'm getting up later and later, but I'm not.  It's all about spring and spending more time outdoors gardening and it's all about lots of March birthdays.  Couples were really getting busy in June six decades ago, if you know what I mean.  I have a lot of friends with March birthdays and today I had another lunch for a friend.  It was so nice.  I think, too, by the sixth decade we are all just so thigh-flappin-happy to still be here!  And we giggle over the dumbest little thing and we weren't even drinking!  Life is good.

This week's challenge at CAS-ual Fridays is "Name That Tune." 


The sponsor this week is Melanie Muenchinger.  Melanie designs for Gina K Designs.  You can find more inspiration from Melanie and view all her stamp sets on her blog, “Hands, Head and Heart.”

(This week is also the last call for you to apply for a spot as a member of the Design Team for this terrific blog. Get on over there and get on it!  Remember Hank Ford said, "There isn't a person anywhere who isn't capable of doing more than he thinks he can.")

Seeing so many of my friends this month, breaking bread, catching up, and sharing memories, made me want to use a song about friends.  A heart-throb in my youth, I'm going with James Taylor and "You've Got a Friend."  Well, I'm not "going with" James Taylor, although I wish I was going with James Taylor!  Now, stop it, here's my card:


I won't be on at all tomorrow, but hope to be back on Sunday.  We will be out enjoying a day in the City with old friends from college days, folks we haven't seen in over 30 years! 
I'm so happy to welcome two new followers who have joined my site.  They are Amanda and Misty's Mum.  I appreciate it!
