NBUS #5





It's time for Darnell's NBUS #5 challenge and you'll definitely want to play along with this one, because she has a lot of wonderful, generous sponsors that joined her for this challenge! It's a biggie!!

All you need to do is use some "Never Before Used Schtuff" (NBUS) to create something. Click the link above for all of the details and rules!


My card includes some fun Halloween NBUS that was included in some fabulous blog candy I won recently from the very generous Sue Drees. Click her name to go to her blog and see the amazing cards and creations she makes! You'll be glad you did! Thanks again Sue!!!

The stamp is Punkin Head (made by Stampendous) and those cute Gruffies are having some Halloween fun. I colored them with Copics and sponged in some purple clouds for a spooky night, and Sue also sent me that spider web die cut along with the tiny black spider. I added some white eyes with a sharpie, and added 2 ribbon tabs to the side after cutting the image panel and card base with Lil Inkers stitched rectangles. The card base color is Elegant Eggplant.


Heartfelt congratulations on your successful and huge following Darnell! You're nearing closer to having 1000 followers, and I have a feeling this challenge may boost you quickly to that nice, round number! You go girl!!! Well done!!! Your blog is such a fun read and you always add smile after smile to my days :) BTW, you make some great cards too!! LOL

Thanks for stopping by and make it a great NBUS day! Now go dig into that stash of unused goodies and be sure to play along!! You'll be glad you did!

Love the spooky purple clouds and that spider web. The ribbon tabs are really cool and a great idea (cuz I have lots of H'ween ribbon snippets). Fun card!

A real great card, Carol. Sue lucked out with Sue's gifts. She is a wonderful lady and I'm not at all surprised at her generosity. I've been on the receiving end of her generosity before and was very grateful. You did a wonderful job with those purple clouds. Have a great night.
