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 234 Sketch - Round or Square

Edit:  I know.  I just noticed, so thank you, but no need to comment at my mistake about the square size (not) of my card.  I think perhaps it was my brain that exploded Sunday and not my back!  What a moron I am.  Right after, like a minute after, I posted on Mojo, I started looking again at the entries and it hit me that I went on auto-pilot when I made the card and didn't make it square.  Even talking about the round v. square in my post didn't connect me to my error.  I'm leaving this post anyway, 'cause it's still a cute card, but I asked the Mojo DT to delete my entry from their blog. 

I guess this will really inspire me to make a round card to properly enter.  Oy. Yoy. Yoy.

This is my Tuesday edition of Mojo Monday because I couldn't decide if I'm round or square.  That's not true, I'm totally round, but of the two sketches, gotta say I'm a square.  For sure.  The sketches are:

Actually I should have done the round because I have that new Cuttlebug and all, and it is cute as pie - the sketch I mean.  I positively must make nothing but Easter cards from now on.  Here I am watching March whiz by like a maniac, just now realizing how fast Easter will be here after I turn that page on the calendar.  I know, right?!  Thankfully, there are so many inspiring Easter cards entered, but for me, this morning, this is what spoke:




Other than spending an hour trying to make the three bleeping panels, this was a simple layered card.  WHY didn't I stay awake during math?  I need a digital ruler so bad and I bet someone makes one.  How nice it would be to just lay it up against the paper and mark off 1.67 inches.  Aaaah.

Oh, sorry, I drifted off to crafter's dreamland. 

So anyway, as I was coming in the house to take the picture (dark outside), I happily remembered that cute little makeup and lipstick that sister, Diana, gave me ages ago.  I love it when my brain produces thought before it's too late.  It's rare anymore and worth celebrating.  But enough about me. 

So what do you think the deal is with that makeup and lipstick?  (Sorry the close-up is a little blurry.)  It's really way too big for a miniature doll house, but kind of small for a real-sized woman.  Unless they made it specifically for a long weekend getaway with your honey.  Or for the hospital bag you took when you went off for a week's stay to  have your baby?  Or did they used to sell makeup and lipstick in emergency road-side vending machines for when you got caught out of the house without makeup and you got a flat tire?

I think I'll go try my hand at making a round bunny card, so I might be back.

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

And, finally, as a follow-up to yesterday's posting about the air ball, thank you for all your well wishes and compliments!  I'm moving around surprisingly well.  I'm sure that eventually I'll stop canting off to the side.
