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!

Mojo Monday 232 - Hydrangea Bud

We're having a lovely day of spring rain and this week's Mojo Monday sketch challenge gave me the opportunity to work with some luscious spring colors.  Here is this week's sketch:


I wanted to make a card I could use for either an Easter card or a Mother's Day card, so I used a photograph I took last summer of a bud on one of our Blue Nikko hydrangea bushes.



The K & Company hydrangea patterned paper was a perfect balance for the bottom half of the card.  In the close-up you can see how the paper has glossified* flowers.  Delicious.

I'd like to warmly welcome Sharon Jones as a new follower!  Thank you so much for joining.  Everyone have a terrific Tuesday and thanks, as always, for looking and commenting!

Please enjoy!

Paper:  SU River Rock, Wild Wasabi,
  K & Company and other
Ink:  Colorbox Dark Moss
Ribbon:  SU Bluebird

File this under "Don't That Beat All."
*I thought it was a word I made up, but I double-checked.  Turns out it is in the Urban Dictionary, as follows: "After a woman has applied lip gloss, she says, "We can go. My lips are glossified."
