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 used one of the sheets from the BoBunny "Key Lime" collection:
Since yellows, reds, and oranges weren't in the scheme of colors, I cut the paper into strips and just used the colors that were in the scheme, and I flipped the sketch and made this:
The flippy flags are all the rage and I'd love to have hooked this up with Nicole's Make It Monday challenge, too, but I didn't use any PTI goodies on this card. Still, the video on her blog was great and it's a fun look.
I have been dying to use that little "daddy" charm that's been in my stash for over a year, so this was a perfect operatunity. I'm pretty sure it's from Doodlebug Designs. The rest of the ingredients are waaaay down at the end of this post. And that's the end of card talk if you want to scoot. Thanks, though, for stopping by!
Oh, hold up. Before we get to Miss Elaine E. Us, I'd like you to meet Ros, otherwise known on her blog as Mikey's Mom. Ros has been sharing her astounding creations for a few years now, so you are definitely in for inspiration and astonishment when you go and visit her! Welcome, Ros, and thank you for joining our friendly group!
First, what is that sweet flower from? Why a radish gone to flower. I found this old pack of radish seeds a few weeks ago and decided to sow them to see what would happen. Turns out that twenty-year-old radish seeds make some pretty disgusting radishes, according to Mister, who we all know will eat anything, so if he said they were bad, well, ew.
There are three more of them still in the vegie box and I've decided to leave them and see how big they get to show the twins. I'll keep you posted.
On a more pleasant note we have these awesome returning flowers:
and our butterfly bushes coming into bloom:
You see, kids, I really do play with Duke until he works himself into a lather and flops out that big ol' tongue to sweat it off! Genetically, the beloved Duke is a mixture of a lot of breeds and like a lot of dogs, he is also part Somekina cat. If you've never seen a small pony use its paws, you're in for a treat!
I'll be back in a few with a card for a challenge that is closing fast. Eek!
Enjoy your day! No, seriously, enjoy. LITS*!
