colourQ #356 and NBUS#7 Challenges

Hello friends.  Kind of a late post for me, but really wanted to play along with the latest colourQ challenge since I've had the ink pads out since last Wednesday, and since I was also using "virgin rubber" as Darnell would say, I also wanted to link up to her latest NBUS#7 challenge.

The colors this past week at the colourQ challenge were Melon Mambo, Blackberry Bliss, Old Olive, Soft Sky, and of course white...never would have thought of putting these colors together but I have to admit that I really like them!  I'm a big fan of Catherine Pooler and her Stamp of Approval box sets, and of course I've had to have them all (5 box sets so far!), but then a lot of times they sit there...and sit there!!  Hence, a lot of NBUS!  Thank you Darnell for helping me to get this stuff out and use it!!  One of the things that sold me most about the 4th box set (almost 6 months ago) was the Geobuilders stamp set, so why did it take me SOOOO long to get it out and use it?!!  Loved playing with it today much fun!!  The sentiment and the butterfly are both from the Butterfly Notes stamp set that were in the last box set.  So other than the ink and the sequins, this card is all NBUS!!  CAS and I really like how it turned out!!  :0)


You have until tomorrow night to play along with the ColourQ Challenge and until September 5th to play along with Darnell and her NBUS#7 Challenge

Thanks so much for stopping by...I love it when you do!

  5. It makes me feel great to hear YOU sounding so delighted about using your NBUS!! Well done on how much you used, too!!
