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!

Freshly Made Sketches 27 and One Layer Wednesday 84

Just one of those days where all is right in my crafty world.  (I should catch a cold more often!)  Since I actually made my ColourQ card yesterday, I had to make something new today.  As it happened, I went to check on what the new Freshly Made Sketch sketch was and went right from there to see what the One Layer (Even) challenge was and Happy Days Are Here Again, I sang to myself.  Circles?  Pinks?  Orange?  I Can Do That!  I hope you'll check out both sites and join in the fun!

Here is the Freshly Made Sketches sketch #27 - "A Sketch by Lesley (Seeing 'Spots')":



And over at Susan's One Layer Wednesday #84 "Pinks and Orange," she challenged us to make a white-based card with pinks and orange, like this:


(Doesn't she do beautiful CAS cards?)  She wants us to use only one orange color, but as many pink colors as we want.

So I combined the two challenges, which is about my maximum ability to combine when it comes to challenges, and made this CAS card:


Please enjoy ~ and thank you for stopping by! Special thanks to you if you took the time to leave me a comment!

Darnell's reply: Thank you for your comment and the head's up. I visited some WOYWW blogs Tuesday night before I linked my own so that's why. I'm #141 on WOYWW now that I've linked and it seems to track back to my blog from there just fine now. (I hope.)

I REALLY (sorry for shouting) love these cards, the colours are amazing and I like the clean, elegant simplicity of them.

This card turned out really cute! I have the PTI dot set and rarely use it. Didn't think to use it for this challenge!
