Hi!! How did it get Friday???
I don't know about you but I HATE it when people (normally at work) start abbreviating things to initials. Normally there are three of them,- initials, not people - so they become three letter acronyms (or TLA as they are also known, abbreviated... always makes me chuckle that such a phrase has become a victim of it's own "success") I have always thought that they are commonly adopted by senior managers who frequently have no idea whatsoever of what the TLA's mean, but use such jargon as a means to assert their authority, and look like they understand and are in control, 'cos if you ask what on earth they are talking about you are the one that looks like the ninny...
I get similarly confused when HB watches films of the action genre... I mean is DEFCON 3 better or worse than DEFCON 5??? and what is DEFCON anyway... I meant it's a six letter acronym, so that has to be serious right??? I have a sneaking feeling I'm better off being ignorant on that one!! (if you know the answer, please don't share, especially if we've just hit DEFCON 6 or 2, whichever whay it works ... just tell me how lovely the card is and I'll go through the pearly gates a happy woman!... )
So, back to the subject... I have enough of management speak at work, so to be honest I was pretty alarmed to find it had found it's way into my beloved world of craft, which i had (wrongly???) assumed was a safe haven!!
So tonight I am going to share a Clean and Simple card with you, or CAS as some call it... please, I implore the crafty community to type those extra 11 letters!! Honestly, it doesn't take long!!
I needed this card tonight as I have been working on a load of party invites this week (got bored after 5)... and two special cards (wait 'n' see) ... so needed to do something with no stress but that would deal with my creative urge (but be done in time to watch last ever Big Brother!!)
In essence I have followed the sketch by Mercy which you can see here. I love her sketches as you can go plain and simple as I have tonight, or go all out and bling it up!!
This one is a simpler Teal Card than I've been doing of late, and I've had some fabulous cards sent to me., all of which is in aid of Ovarian Cancer Research and you can win some fabulous blog candy, all for making a card and sending it to me :-) Check out what you could win here
I have used some rub ons that I've had for ages by 7 Gypsies, I was worried that they had gone "off" but they worked a treat :-)
I'd also like to enter this card for
