I love Darnell's NBUS (Never-Before-Used Schtuff) challenges.  I keep all of my new items in a basket until I use it.  Only then can I put it away.  My basket is overflowing (hanging my head in shame).  What is it about craft supplies that makes me keep buying, when I couldn't use everything in my hoard in two lifetimes?!?!?!  Sigh.  At least this card has a few NBUS. 
I have only used a few letters from the My Favorite Things die set.  Never before used Darice Rulers embossing folder, inked with a new Distress Black Soot ink.  I think I will make a few more of these for my son to send to his teachers to say thank you.

  1. Bobbi, Saw this in Darnell's NBUS Gallery and just had to stop by and say hi. Love this background... and laughing about that overflowing basket. :)

  2. What a fantastic card this will be for your son's teachers, Bobbi! They will be so tickled! I love your design and how used that NBUS! At least you are smart enough to keep your NBUS in a basket before you turn it into US. I always put mine away right away. I tell myself that it's because I can't abide clutter, but, honestly, I think it's because I would be shocked and appalled at the size of the basket I would need!! Thank you so much for playing in my NBUS Challenge #6!! Hugs, Darnell
