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. Note: my Privacy Policy can be found at a tab below and you can find my NBUS Challenge online. I hope you'll join in the fun there! Thanks for coming by! Have a beverage and enjoy!

CFC 36 CAS-ual Fridays, Black and White

It's a happy rainy day here in Northern California.  We are celebrating the rain and the 49ers being in the playoff game.  I hope the rest of the country gets some much-needed moisture soon.  My plants are SO happy with the rain and the warmer temperatures. 

So, okay, I just became aware of CAS-usal Fridays 36 Challenges and thought I would particpate in this black-and-white-only challenge.  As you can tell, I really like black and white (with a little blue to pick up the veins of blue in the black granite).  This is my kitchen after a remodel a few years ago:

And this is my card, which couldn't be much simpler!  I used vellum embellishments only, which I think came from Stampin' Up!, but I'm not sure.  (Sorry; my system of organization is such that I take things out of their packages and put them in their assigned spots.)  It was nice to participate in this challenge and make a useful Valentine at the same time!  TFL!
