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!

Penny Black @ Allsorts and Simon Says

I spent today painting the deck, so I didn't get out to the playhouse until this evening to make a card for two challenges, one new to me.  I used a Penny Black stamp so I'm linking to the Penny Black Saturday Challenge Week 191, "Case It Challenge."  And because I used a Happy Mother's Day sentiment, I'm also linking to the Simon Says Stamp Challenge of "Mother's Day/Special Girl."  Here 'tis:


Well, hmmm, when I went to link to Penny Black Saturday, the linky had expired, so maybe I'll luck out and my card will be appropriate to link to the new challenge tomorrow. 

Edit: Well, it turns out my card is not appropriate for this week's PB Saturday "make a card for a child" challenge.  However!  I just found out about the Penny Black @ Allsorts challenge, so I've linked my card there.  Wonders never cease!

Enjoy!
