Welcome to Monday!
So the Mister says to me, "Do your Card Ladies (that's what he calls you) know that I make cards, too?" Well, if that's not permission to show you the sweet anniversary card I got from him, I don't know what is!!
BTW, the nicknames? Yes, he does call me Toots or Tootsarino, but I don't really call him K2. He just always signs his name that way because his first and last initials both start with K and he's a science guy, so he writes K Squared. I don't call him Mister either, I call him Hon.
It reminds me of when the twins were just learning to be conversant. We were babysitting and we were all four in the family room. The boys were playing on the floor, and we were reading. I looked up and saw that the Mister was gone. I caught Adam's eye and asked, "Where did he go?" Adam got up and toddled over to the hallway and yelled, "HON?" as loud as he could. It was so darn funny!
Some bloggers call it the birthday of their blog; some call it the anniversary of their blog. Hence and fourtooth, mine is a birthaversary! Feel free to use my new word if you like it!
The light dawned, so to speak. So now I'm just going to combine the two. From now on, January 16th will be celebrated as both our wedding anniversary and my blog birthaversary. Honestly, it's just because I need a way to make it easier to remember! As I have aged, my head has gotten pretty full of dates. Although sometimes I eat raisins just to be different.
I want to again thank Melissa for the privilege of being Guest Designer for CASology Week 129 and for the compliment of having NBUS as the cue card word of the week! It was wonderful having CAS card artists linking to both our challenges with one card!
The second reason was that it provided me with a way to say thank you to all the followers of my blog by giving them a chance to win a $25 gift card. It's my uniQ and interactive way to give you blog candy.
The prize winners will be announced at noon PST on Sunday, January 25, 2015.
Even though the challenge isn't over, I want you to know that I'm feeling very humbled by the enthusiasm and love and support you are all giving to my third NBUS Challenge! I truly am overwhelmed!
When the entries reached 400 over the weekend, I scooted back from my desk, tucked Hammy in my pocket so he wouldn't fly off my shoulder, and twirled around in my chair like a 10-year-old! I gotta say, that was hella fun! Seriously, I'm very, very thankful!!
CARD/CHALLENGE BREAK ~ New Friends Corner
Now, as the entries are reaching 500 (Wait. WHAT??!) and there are still over two days left, I'm going to be taking a bit of a break from card-making and challenges this week so I can concentrate on visiting the entries and leaving thankful comments.
I do, however, want to continue to introduce you to the new friends who have arrived at the Playhouse, so when I can, I will be posting introductions for you in my New Friends Corner and I hope that you will visit them and introduce yourselves!
And just for eye candy, coz we gotta have a little eye candy, and because this is a card blog, I may include a vintage card of mine.
