Now a lot of you know the lovely Darnell of djkardkreations and for those of you who don't then you should head over to her blog as it is always very entertaining... but back to the point - she is hosting another of her fabulous NBUS challenges where she challenges you to use your 'never-before-used-schtuff' which I'm certain we are all guilty of having
For my card I went very CAS as I really am having problems getting my brain into gear!! (okay so what's new you ask)
Last October when I realised I hadn't got any Clearly Besotted christmas stamps I treated myself to the super 'Rockin Robin' set with the matching dies and as you may guess I never got around to using them, so this is also my first christmas card for 2015. I stamped and die-cut the robins and attached them straight onto a card blank with sticky pads. then I embossed a couple of lines above and below them and used the sentiment from the same set. This is definitely the 'I need a load of cards in a hurry' design and I think it would probably work better on a smaller card rather than 6 inch square.
So as well as Darnells' NBUS challenge I shall also head over with another entry to Pixies Snippets Playground where you have to use up some of your 'hoarded' snippets (the robins are snippets of card)
The other challenges I'm entering are
CAS on Sunday 'christmas'
Country View Crafts 'use something new to you - a craft product or technique'
Simon Says Wednesday 'anything goes'
Thanks for taking the time to visit and for all your comments and encouragement. I really do appreciate it.
