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!
And we're back around to Friday! (And, geez, the last day of August!)
I had a great time visiting my friend's cabin yesterday. It was a beautiful day and it was a beautiful, cozy cabin. I wish I had pictures to show you, but my friend is in the Witness Protection Program and I didn't want to blow her cover. Also, I forgot to bring my camera.
I still got in some crafty card time last night. I do adore Melissa'sCASology challenges. The premises are surrounded by an electrical ... no, wait, I mean the premise is a single "cue card" word and you then run with it. Each week the winner gets to be the guest designer for the next week.
At first glance, you might think, what the heck am I going to do with that? But that's exactly the fun of it. The possibilities are only limited by your imagination! Well, and don't forget the "ology" part: Clean And Simple.
This week there is a sponsor: the outstanding Cindy from Cindy Coutts Designs! Check it. And this week the guest designer is the wonderful Karen from Karen's Nuts. I know you think I made up that name, but I did not neither! Karen is brand new to Blogland, so please pay her a visit. How cool for her to be recognized right from the start!
Here is this week's cue word:
Cindy covered drinking, so my card tells the story of another of my favorite relaxing activities:
Not the best photo because the skies here are cast over today. Fun card, though, huh? One of my little sisters loves puzzles even more than I do, so I will send this card to her, along with the rest of the beautiful puzzle.
I mentioned the other day that my DDIL, Rachel, was away visiting her sick auntie. She flew home via United and emailed me this:
"I wanted to mention that the pilot of the flight from Chicago to SFO was a lady who sounded exactly like you over the speaker. She was funny and even made up words to better describe situations. I was dumbfounded and actually thought to myself: does Mom have a secret life?"
How fun is that?! Do you think I might have a twin gerbil out there?
Enjoy! It's a long holiday weekend here in the States, the last hoo-haa of summer, so please be safe wherever you are! As always, thank you for stopping by to visit. Special thanks to you if you take the time to join as a follower or leave a comment!
