I love CASual Fridays. This week the challenge is to make a card replicating your blog banner. Hmmm. Didn't see that one coming. Woulda put a cockatoo, or shoefly, or a martini on there, had I known.
Why is my banner my banner? My initials are "djk." I made up the name "djkreations" over ten years ago and had a rubber stamp made with that name which I stamped on the backs of my cards. Fast forward to about a year ago and I set up my blog. It seemed only natural to put "djkreations" on my banner and dotcom it while I was at it. That's when I found out there is a disk jockey in Kansas City, MO who already has that name. So that's how "djkardkreations" came to be. I know, genius, huh?
But not so genius when you have to make an identifying card. I didn't have a new rubber stamp made with the new name because I now make up clear labels that have the copyright symbol and "djkardkreations.com," which I put on the backs of my cards.
I thought about it for several days. Then a few minutes ago, as time was running out on this challenge, I suddenly remembered that I still had that old rubber stamp around here somewhere and I quickly made my as-close-as-it-gets banner card.
Here is my Horn Tootle card. Just don't tell the disk jockey!
Hop into this challenge if you haven't already. It is being sponsored by the fantastic A Muse Studio!
Thanks for the second stop today! Mwah!
Nice to see you again Darnell. That would be a tough challenge for me with all my red and white squiggles and not much else, but yours is brilliant, you are so inventive - love it! Crafty hugs, Anne x
Love your grassy background. I'm sure the dj won't mind. I'm not even attempting to toot my banner, as there's nothing to toot!
Very creative idea, I love it.
Fantastic - love that you included the grass!
Cute story about your blog beginnings, and a great card for the blog banner challenge! I love how the grass mirrors your blog background!
Brilliant Darnell!! Di xx
