Darnell's NBUS Challenge #8

Welcome back! How have you all been? You know it's nearly 2 years since I started my blog. February 2015 to be precise. I've learnt a lot since then and I'd like to think my card making and blogging has improved.... I hope anyway!

Two years is nothing compared to Darnell who has racked up 5 years, 1,000 blog posts and 1,000 followers. Amazing huh? So to celebrate she has opened up her NBUS challenge which I love to enter. I have plenty of NBUS so it really helps me....

This cute Birdie Brown stamp was part of the My Favorite Things gift card I won and spent back in October. These are just perfect to colour in. I simply stamped her onto some Neenah and coloured her in with my Copic markers.

If you read my post from last week, you'll see I'm still in melonizing mode and coloured her in appropriate colours - avoided the pips on the hat though as I was worried I might ruin it.

She's simply mounted on an A2 white card base with an MFT stitched frame (from a friend) in one of my Lawn Fawn plaid papers. 

Here is a list of the supplies used on this card. I have signed up to affiliate links on some products (currently only Simon Says Stamp). If you purchase any item after clicking on an affiliate link, I will receive a small commission at no extra cost to you. This helps in a small way to support the running of my blog and is very much appreciated, thank you!

So I'm entering this at Darnell's NBUS #8 and hope I can get some more NBUS used up for #9 next week. I do hope you'll think about entering. Darnell is a wonderfully kind crafty blogger and she's giving away some amazing prizes too.

Thank you as always for stopping by and for your lovely comments! Have a great week - and try not to get too excited by all the goodies on show at CHA in Phoenix Arizona. I've seen a sewing machine that sews with Baker's Twine I would love to get my hands on!

Such a sweet card, Ruth. I'm trying very hard to use my NBUS. You know I also have plenty of MFT NBUS and then some.

Ruth you are so super talented and can't believe it's been nearly two years since you're took up crafting, you would think that you're been crafting for tens of years. You come up with such Fab and original ideas that are so cool. This card is gorgeous and love the Melonizing too lol. The colours are so perfect. Hugs x

Beautiful card, your colouring is wonderful. I must admit I was looking for the seeds, as I've seen so many melons lately. Good to see you blogging and entering Darnells challenge.

Another fabulous colouring job here Ruth! Doesn't time fly? Many congratulations on two years blogging! Your card making and blogging was great from the start, but it certainly has grown and matured beautifully! You showed great talent right from the start and that has just grown and grown! Have a wonderful Sunday Ruth! Hazel xx
