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!
I took it easy yesterday. I was feeling needy, however, so I looked up my old friend Joann Dotcom and she was more than happy to go shopping with me. Feeling the Cinco de Mayo celebration spirt (a spurt of celebration?), she didn't even charge to mail my goodies to me. I love her.
As you know, I'm heels over teakettle trying to figure out my usual challenges and whether or not this or that collection has closed. Like my last post, I had a stamp I knew I wanted to use for today, and just for today, but which challenge? Ah ha, the Freshly Made Sketches was just the ticket! The sketch, cleverly designed by Jen Mitchell:
And my card, cleverly turned sideways by me:
It's a lovely day here and the flower garden is woefully in need of some love and attention, so I am heading there. After a grueling 12 minutes, I will be parched I'm sure and feel the need to raise a glass of Modelo Especial in a frosted glass. ¡Hola! Maybe munch on some chips and salsa . . . well, bless my burrito, a girl can dream. I can't have any of those things quite yet, but I hope wherever you are, you are having a wonderful day, partaking in merriment and food and frothy libitations of your choice!
Please enjoy ~ and, as always, thank you for

Check out our single solitary strawberry plant I got for free from the nursery last year. I just popped it in one of the planter boxes next to the chives and oregano and thyme, all of which are coming back bonkers after having survived an unusually cold winter.
It was a thrill to notice it this morning and Mister will be thrilled to have super fresh strawberries with his yogurt tomorrow!
