CARD CONCEPT CHALLENGE #27 and NBUS #3





Never-Before-Used-Schtuff (Stamps, Dies, EFs, etc.)

Okay folks...how fabulously funky are these "LOVE" letters and weathered barn boards? You'll find tons of inspiration from the CCC  gals - check it out!

I think this may be a record - I made a card that I liked on the first try! It's graphic, but in a soft way. Perhaps it's the lovely movement in the sentiment font, a new SSS acquisition. I've popped up the hearts to add a bit of dimension. 

BTW, the colors are beautifully pink-ish and co-ordinate nicely in real life! 

My card is also heading over to Darnell's blog (yes....THE  Darnell, with 763 followers and counting) for her NBUS Challenge #3.

Darnell is a dear friend with a smile that lights up the world, a kind heart and a sense of humor that will make you smile all over your face. If you haven't already linked up to NBUS #3 you best get busy because the gate closes at noon on January 22nd!

Happy crafting!

  13. I'm swooning exponentially over your gorgeous card AND the new watermark that I spy! Those ombre hearts of yours, particularly in light of my current crush with paint chips, see me with a smile all over MY face! Pretty to the max, my friend! Your beautiful sympathy card arrived: THANK YOU ever so much, and the donation to the Children's Hospital...my heart is deeply touched, as is my mom's and, I know, my dad's! You are such a gift! And by the way...when are you heading west again? If/when you do, pencil in a visit with me, where I'll give you a really squeezy hug! Until then,here's a virtual one: SQUUUEEEEEEEZE!
    Hugs~c
