I came THIS close to throwing it out, but I had put too much into it, so I held my ground and just stamped "MORE" on a yellow scrap of paper and popped it up on the card. The "MORE" word was cut from a stamp in my NBUS Tim Holtz set "Playful Journey." Goodness, lots of different companies played together on this card!
I hear some of you asking the obvious question, where the heck is Hammy? Very a stoot of you! I wouldn't have had so much trouble making my card if Hammy had been here. Hollywood called and Hammy is now a star making Sprint commercials! They call him Tom and he has a mobster accent! Here's a YouTube video. I'm going to give him his 15 minutes of fame and then I want him BACK!
NBUS Challenge #1 Reminder
I want to thank all of you who immediately sent me comments of support and then entered your card in the gallery of my first-ever NBUS Challenge! Talk about inspiration, there are some amazing entries!! I so appreciate your participation. After supporting numerous challenges and friends in the last couple of years, it's fun to have that love returned! The information on the NBUS Challenge can be found here. The Challenge is open until June 27, 2014. Please make sure you read the rules and paste this button on your blog post featuring your card entry. Thank you!
It turns out the letters BUS in my acronym were appropriate as A TON of new friends have taken the N Bus right up to the Playhouse!! There are so many, in fact, that I'm going to introduce them to you in groups of five. I want you to click on the links and I think if there are too many it will become a job, and we don't want that now, do we?
Today, first and foremost, it is my pleasure to introduce you to the new friend who was responsible for the 500 milestone mark which precipitated the first NBUS Challenge! Her name is Simonne Clay and she has been writing her blog Semsee Crafts and making her award-winning cards since 2010. There is a ton of inspiration on her delightful blog, a lot of it whimsical, which is always a treat!
