More NBUS For Challenge #3

Follow my blog with Bloglovin Darnell, over at djkardkreations has really started my ball rolling, with her NBUS challenge #3 to be found here


http://www.djkardkreations.com/2015/01/happy-new-year-2015-nbus-challenge-3.html

For those of you who do not know Darnell, or what NBUS means, you must be new on the blogging scene!

Darnell is a fabulous, helpful and giving blogger who makes the most amazing cards.  NBUS is her acronym for Never Before Used Schtuff - which speaks for itself - I know that most of you, if not all of you, have purchaased stuff and never got round to using it, just like me.

Anywho, this challenge of Darnell's just gave me the kick up the rear that I needed to get out of the Christmas shlump and encourage me to use some of that NBUS - which, believe me when I say, even if I made a card every day from these hidden gems, I still wouldn't catch up by this Christmas coming!

This card's NBUS supplies were the Penny Black 'Bashful' die and the My Favorite Things, 'Simply Fabulous Sayings' stamp set.

This is the card



The light was too poor to do a detail shot today.  Thanks for taking the time to drop by, I appreciate all your visits and comments and will reciprocate!  Have a great day,  Hazel x

    Your card is stunning and I just love the background colours, the little dots are perfect and remind me of droplets of rain on the flower.
