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!

OLW 81 - Cream, Black, and Bling

Seriously cannot believe that we are into March.  It feels like a march, doesn't it, straight through to the end of the year.  Hello?  Excuse me?  I wonder, could we get off now and play in the grass for a bit, just slow down?  Excuse me?  Hey, Llllaaaddddyyyy!!  For those of you too young to have known Jerry Lewis in his younger days, you won't get that visual; it was beyond funny when he did it.

Marching on ...  Today I made a card for the odd half (no offense) of One Layer Wednesday over at Styles Ink (or Syle Sink, if you want).  Jennifer gets the odd-numbered days for this challenge and Susan over at Simplicity gets the even-numbered days.  You should check them out if you like clean and simple, no-fuss cards!  Jennifer's challenge, as the title above declared, is a) cream, b) black, and c) bling.  Period.  Love that.  Here you go:




Isn't that the best picture? Anyone who has ever had a sister, or wished she had, or had a very bestest friend, will be giggling right now!

Today I'd like you to welcome Ali of TeddyBobCrafts who joined me as a follower.  Ali is very new to blogland, newer than me even, so please stop by and leave her a comment.

And, as always, if you leave me one, thank you!  Comments do help us find each other in this big blog world!  Have a good one!

Enjoy!

That is a sweet picture. I don't have a sister, just two troublesome brothers! But now I have two girls of my own and I love to see those sweet moments of sisterhood. :) Ann

I really, really love this. Love the photo, and yes, gave me a big smile and a giggle thinking of my 3 sisters and of all the amazing women friends that I have whom I love like sisters! I am going to try using a photo. I never think of that. Thanks for the inspiration!
