NBUS #8 Challenge!


I did it! Jumping for joy, well, clapping hands, no, waving one hand frantically ...that's it....I finally have something made so I can join the NBUS challenge!!!! Darnell has only been having these for two years!

NBUS = Never Before Used Stuff

My NBUS for these cards is the SSS Spring Floral die and the Colorbursts. I was playing with the Colorbursts to see what they did. Sprinkled a bit on watercolor card and spritzed with water. One color on a card. So now what to do with them. Then I saw a pic on Pinterest and used its layout for inspiration. Darnell's optional theme was to color on Kraft. Well, I have colored flowers on krinkled kraft! Close enuf.!

Here's the two birthday cards I've made for a couple of my neighbors.

Be sure to pop over to say Hi to Darnell ( )You'll be glad you did. She and Hammy are a hoot.

Happy Anniversary, Darnell and Mister!

Happy Blogaversary too!

Crafty hugs,

Nan and the Girls
