Soooo...What's New?



Here's my 3rd and final entry into Darnell's first NBUS challenge found here. WTG Darnell, this challenge has been an overwhelming success with lots of great entries to inspire us to actually USE our Never Before Used Schtuff! (NBUS)

Today I'm using a new stamp by Stampendous called "News Pup." I thought the image was hilarious and this puppy jumped right into my hands as soon as I walked into the store! LOL I colored it with Copics, adding glossy accents to his glasses, and colored the newsprint dsp with matching Copics to pull it all together. The buttons were done with an IO button die, and the sentiment was computer generated and done with some Hearts A'Flutter dies from SU! The card base is a dark teal from Bazzill.

I hope this little guy made you smile today too, and if he did, pass on that smile to someone else! A smile is a good thing on any day!

You still have time to get your entry in Darnell's challenge, so don't wait! Use that schtuff you bought and make some cards!!



Thanks for stopping by and make it a great Friday!

Honestly, cute, cute, cute! (He looks a lot like the Mister!!) He did more than make me smile, Carol, I giggled right out loud!! You make the BEST critter cards!!

You should start a Critter Challenge! OMG, that would be a HUGE hit!! Lynn (Creative Crafts by Lynn) could be your co-owner if you wanted to share the work. Her critter cards are great, too! So many of us have/love animals and have animal stamps. Hmmmm? I can feel your brain wheels turning ...!

Thank you for entering my NBUS Challenge again, posting the button, and enfusiastically spreading the word!! Mwah! Enjoy the day! Hugs, Darnell
