Sorry for the Short Fuse

 I hope I never mail this card...

ya know what I'm saying???

If I lose it enough to have to send a card....


 (stamp: MFT ALM Firecracker, Technique Tuesday Inner Circle  other: Sizzix tag die, Copics)

 I don't even want to admit how many cards I've attempted for this CAS-ology's Challenge...



 I'll tell you.

You made me break.

geesh, YOU. ARE. GOOD. ;)


 I am soooo not a science girl...just an English Lit snob ;).

Labs made me nervous...the fire, SHARP scalpels, chemicals.....

Eeek, I'm such a girl scout (literally.  I WAS a girl scout for a long long time).

I saw dangers EVERYWHERE in the classroom.

I think this topic shut me down when I thought of science class.


So I stopped thinking of class and

 tried "great idea"...

"never give up"...

but the cards didn't make me happy. ;(

My youngest is a natural in science, and will probably become something amazing in that field.

 I really really wanted to give this a go despite my awkwardness.

This firecracker card is my favorite of the gang. ;)

Many moons ago someone found a way to invent  "fun" fiery entertainment that many can enjoy.

That's the beauty of science ....

something fun or more importantly, lifesaving is discovered despite the dangers of experimenting.

I did my signature "coloring"....dotty dotting for this fun challenge...

Thanks for visiting!


  1. Hi Marlena! So good to see you getting out of your "comfort zone " and play along at Casology!
    I am (was) a science girl... way back when... but I think crafting is much more fun!

  2. I'm glad you didn't quit on us this week, Marlena, because this rocks! A cute and clever take on the cue word and I love the dotty coloring! Thanks for playing along with CASology this week!

  3. Oh fun card. I enjoyed you sharing with us.


Thank you for your kind words and taking the time to stop in! ;)
