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.

Today Is a Good Day!

Hello Stamplings!

I know, I'm back pretty quickly, but before they close, I want to support a few challenges with a QACAS OLC (quick and clean and simple one-layer card).

But first, sorry, it was rude of me not to ask how you're doing? The Heat Dome over the US and parts of Europe is like something out of a science fiction movie. Since we can't escape it, then we just have to decide that today is a good day to have a good day!
Peeking from the side of my card is a portion of a NBUS flower stamp from Craft Emotions. It doesn't say on the packaging, but I think they are magnolia flowers. I've done the direct-to-stamp inking and spritzing technique in Ukranian blue and yellow colors. The sediment is unmarked. After I touched up the image with my Ziggies and colored pencils, I ran the card through my Gemini using the SU Subtle e/f. I love how the sun lit the texture so it looks like the background is made of stucco.


No Twofer today, but I'll leave you with a couple of eggcorns. I haven't shared any in a long time:
  • escape goat, instead of scape goat.
  • hearbuds, instead of ear buds.
  • plate mats, instead of place mats.
  • radar detester, instead of radar detector.
  • real goal-getter, instead of real go-getter.
  • very close veins, instead of varicose veins.
You gotta love 'em. Seems like every family has one or two. Does yours? You prolly remember my family favorite was my Aunt Alzada's: "hard roll to hold," instead of "hard row to hoe."😂


Enjoy your day! No, seriously, enjoy! LITS!*

As always, thank you for coming by to visit the Playhouse, being a follower, and leaving some love!
