The first acronyms I learned helped me read the notes to play the piano: FACE were the spaces when reading music and EGBDF (every good boy does fine) were the lines. Now everything is an acronym and my memory as I grow older isn't as good as as it was when I learned to play the piano in 1st grade. Last evening, I even took a Pen-touch white pen to my keyboard because half of the letters were worn off and I was constantly getting the i and o keys mixed up. Life is getting more puzzling with all these acronyms. I receive comments from challenges DT members with initials like OLLCB or TTCRD or SAS4K and it takes a moment for me to recognize what those letters mean.
So, for some of you who may be wondering, today I have a card for the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge and I've used a border stamp from the Close to My Heart February Stamp of the Month.

As soon as I saw the sketch at Atlantic Hearts, I knew I wanted to try curving the border stamp to make a wreath. After stamping I added a touch of color, using a water brush and the ink from the lids of my stamp pads. I like it.
