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!

If I didn't want to use a naughty word, I would say, "Oh, sugar!"  (Like I've ever said "Oh, sugar!" in my life!)  I finished my chores this morning and checked out the Mojo Monday challenge.  I'm pretty new to this, but it sounds like this time there is a contest and normally there isn't.  Well, it's no contest as far as I'm concerned.

Today, oh, today, this wasn't easy.  It was just one of those days.  You know how it goes when you don't have the right-sized punch to make a tag and without it, it's just not all that "sharp" looking?  Or you don't have a punch or a die for the flower you really want, or the leaves?  Or the colors, well ... I don't know, maybe they are not your favorite colors, so why did you pick them?  That kind of thing happened today, but I am posting my card anyway because it took waaaaaaaaaay too much of my time to make it, not to post it.  You know what I'm saying?

Here is the perfectly fine sketch:

And here is my card:

which, please, you don't need to click on it to make it bigger.  Honest.  I made a lot of mess out in the playhouse, too, which now I'll go clean up.  Then I'll start a new card.  It's what we do.

Darnell, Love your card... I might have to CAS this one. I have this same sentiment stamp and haven't pulled it out in awhile. Great color combo. It just feels like spring!

That is a difficult template. Your card is lovely. I am getting a really confused head with all of these challenges - could spend all day entering them, but must do other stuff!! Ali x
