Miss your Face

Never-Before-Used-Schtuff (Stamps, Dies, EFs, etc.)I am so happy not to be traveling during Darnell's NBUS Challenge. I have a bin of new stuff that needs to be inked, cut and put on a card front.

First up, for my Dad.  I was not enamored of those crazy birds when they first came out...but the silly little creatures have grown on me. I think they are great for man cards.  Since I send my Dad a lot of cards, they will see ink.

My NBUS items are the Bird from the Crazy Birds stamp set by Stampers Anonymous, the Gingham by Impression Obsession, and the sentiment from That is all by WPlus9.  With that yellow bird, I though the blue violet ink and cardstock from Simon Says Stamp would be a great contrast and take this card straight to man-land!



Thanks so much for stopping by, and if you have never-before-used-schtuff make a card and post it over at Darnell's blog!

  8. Ha, I love your line about taking your card straight to manland, Cat! I may have to steal that one! Your dad will get a real charge out of this crazy bird card, perfect in bright yellows and bold manly blues and then his heart will melt over the sediment! Well done using all that NBUS and thank you for the kind advert! I appreciate that you played in my 6th NBUS challenge!! Hugs, Darnell
