I'm playing in Mandi's and Chrissie's Less Is More challenge, which is a one-layer card featuring foliage. I'm combining it with this week's One Layer Wednesday (OLW), which features both Susan's Gratitude Campaign 2012 and Cheryl's fun theme this week, Autumn.
So up my alley. So the wrong time for Moe Joe to leave the Playhouse. Actually, I think he's still here, he's just wasted. I finally broke down and went to the doctor this morning about my
Here's my entry.
I'm feeling negative about it, which I'll blame on the meds and behinds which, I don't like it when other artists are negative about their cards. So instead I'm going to say, what a doggone cute embellishment that is!
I have been wanting to share this with you for a few days:
Some of you know that I subscribe to Dictionary.com's "Word of the Day," even though lots of days I forget to look at it on my home page. Well, last week my eyes were drawn to it and they couldn't believe what they were seeing. Turns out there is a real word in the Dictionary that describes my "special" way with words! I know! Can you believe it?! I'm totally not even making this up - you can check it out yourself.
Word of the Day

cacology \ka-KOL-uh-jee\ , noun:
But it does make sense when you think of the word cacophony, which means "a harsh, discordant mixture of sounds." Discordant means that annoying sound corduroy makes when your knees rub together. I'm just kidding about that, but this word thing can be a full-time hobby. When you look up one word, the description often contains another word you have to look up. At my age, by the time I've ridden that word merry-go-round to completion, I've forgotten what the original word was that I was looking up!
Cacophony is pronounced Ka-cough-o-ny. I always read it as Cack O. Phony first, then stop, remember, and read it the correct way. Talk about annoying. I also have trouble with the name "Penelope," which, you guessed it, I always want to pronounce Pen Ah. Lope, like it's a member of one of the hundreds of subspecies of antelope.
As ca-ca as my blitherings may sometimes be, I delighted to report that I was nominated for a Liebster Award by Shirley-Bee. Thank you so much, Shirley!
Okay, that's enough interdiction for today. I hope you're having a great day whatever you're doing, or sleep well, if it's night time where 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!
