A site for my handmade cards, accompanied by my photos and written meanderings which are occasionally witty, often tongue-in-cheek, and rarely profound. Beginning in June 2013, you'll also see lots of NBUS, which is an acronym I coined for Never-Before-Used-Schtuff. Note: my Privacy Policy can be found at a tab below and you can find my NBUS Challenge online. I hope you'll join in the fun there! Thanks for coming by! Have a beverage and enjoy!

NBUS Challenge #12 ~ Day Six!

Hello, Stamplings!

Welcome to Day Six of our ten-day challenge to USE NBUS! For all the details on the history, rules, and prizes, please go here. If you have a card to enter today, the linky tool is below!

Are you sick of seeing me every day? Hee-hee, I told you I had a LOT of cheeky sediments to amuse you! On tap for today:
This gorgeous young thang is from Art Impressions and she's called "Rhonda With Hat." You've met her before, but the sediment is NBUS from Verses Rubber Stamp Co. She was colored with Ziggies and bordered with Washi.

And then we have her twin sister, also called Rhonda:
I know, so bad! But I have to say I'm now at an age where this actually happens!! So does the bad flush I get from a tiny bit of exertion!
I'm going to be serious for a minute. That's a fun boob sediment, but breast cancer is not funny, so it's a timely card to remind us that next month is Breast Cancer Awareness month. Time to make those yearly donations and set that appointment for your mammogram squishing!

Off you go now! Use that NBUS!! You're doing GREAT!! I know a lot of bloggers have moved from Blogland to Instaland. We miss them, but there is still a ton of terrific inspiration in the gallery! And as before, I've also set up a Pinterest page for your awesome creations! I'm very proud of all of you!!

Enjoy the challengeNo, seriously, enjoy!

I think the sentiment on the first card may have been written exclusively for me!! I love it. You are so right about the boob one, it is funny but serious all at the same time, a very timely reminder - thank you! Hugs, Annie xxx

You just crack me up. I love the sentiment about the cookie. Cute cards. [Bunny]

Lynette said...

Dee Earnshaw said...

Love the humor on these cards especially the one with the cookie in the cleavage - I have been know to store cookies there too lol!!!

Brenda in IN said...

These are a hoot! I love her and her hat. I can relate to the first card for sure. There is something in my closet that shrinks my clothes a little bit more every season. I'm enjoying seeing all the cards in the NBUS challenge. Such great cardmakers!

Maura said...

I love these "snarky" cards you have been making Darnell - so fun!!! Sure to put a smile on someone's face. Thanks SO much for sponsoring your challenge again, and I think I saw that you said to mention what "prize" we would be interested in - if we won- and I would LOVE the gift card! Thanks again and happy Friday, friend!

Marcia Hill said...

GREAT cards today Darnell and thank you once again for my morning laugh...you done good today!! And I also wanted to say that while I am one of those who is now figuring my way around Instagram, I will never leave blogland and think there is definitely room for both in this world! Hope you have a great weekend my friend!! :0) And P.S....did you notice that my Google+ came back when Loll put my profile back on? She had taken it off to be admin while she did the redesign, and once she took herself off the Google+ came back on...yeah, I didn't lose my followers!! :0)

cm said...

Why, why, why do I always take a sip of coffee before opening your posts! You'd think I'd know better...Laugh out loud fabulous cards; great start to my day! Young thang Rhonda seems quite the versatile gal!
Hugs and love~c

Barbara Godden said...

Happy Dance said...

Hahahahahaha!!! That's me and my evil twin...the one who says, "nooooo, you're not fat, you're just fluffy!" These are great images, and those sentiments make me laugh out loud. Have to say that your coloring is marvelous, btw... What fun cards! And yes, BC is definitely serious. It touches everyone's life in one way or another, and you'll be proud to know that my good old mammyogrammyo was negative! Woohoo!!! Checks are vital to keep us all that way! I will try to make another card, if I can find any NBUS, hahahahahahahahahaha! Love you and miss you!! xo Bev

Two fabulous cards Darnell they made me smile


Jenny L said...

Hi Darnell,
I can't stop chuckling at your cards those sediments are brilliant.
Yes I often have bits of food fall out of my Bras when undressing nowadays especially if its in the biscuit form or snack form.
I also get a dinner badge quite often too as my Son calls it.
Love and big crafty hugs from my house to yours. Jenny L.

Mac Mable said...

Thank you for the reminder about breast cancer awareness x Fun two cards, particularly loved the first one and I so can relate to it! x And 'no' I would never get fed up of you and enjoying your post....keep them coming xxx

Kath said...

Fabulous cards and great sentiments too.

Jane Willis said...

Is it wrong to be saving up my pennies for airfare so I can come and raid your sentiment drawer? Two more brilliant cards

conil said...

Clearly, I've been shopping for stamps in all the wrong places or I'm just totally oblivious. I was still laughing at yeterday's cards and then these appeared...the hilarity is never ending. Honestly, girl, you're killing me. BTW, I've already had my squishing done for the year...and found that and gravity means that the squishing is much less now.

Leslie Miller said...

Oh, stop! I'm trying to enjoy the peace and quiet on a drizzly morning and then you went and made me laugh out loud! Almost spewed my coffee, in fact. These are hilarious and with super coloring. Love those splats on the second card. I had my mammogram last month. You can never over-emphasize the importance of mammograms and self-exams. Have a good day!

AlisonC said...

Brilliant. I'm still giggling.

Alice (scrAPpamondo) said...

Super fun both !! love your hilarious cards!! :D

Sandra H said...

So funny and the sentiments are funny too! xx

Verna Angerhofer said...

I just love coming to see your blog posts. You always have something that will make me laugh. Thanks so much and great coloring of the twins named Rhonda. Those are such funny sentiments. And, thanks always for the reminder to your readers to get the girls checked out.

BożenA said...

Another two funny cards. Unfortunately, I have trouble translating the full text :-( But Rhonda's are great. Perfectly colored ... great technician, Darnell.

Liz said...

Another two brilliant cards, Darnell, how DO you find all these images and sentiments??

On the subject of mammograms, my appointment date for my mammogram arrived in the post this week. In case you didn't see the Ode I posted on my Facebook page, I'll post it here. (Not written by me!) xx

Ode to a Mammogram

For years and years they told me,
Be careful of your breasts.
Don't ever squeeze or bruise them.
And give them monthly tests.
So I heeded all their warnings,
And protected them by law.
Guarded them very carefully,
And I always wore my bra.
After 30 years of astute care,
My gyno, Dr. Pruitt,
Said I should get a Mammogram.
"O.K," I said, "let's do it."
"Stand up here real close" she said,
(She got my boob in line,)
"And tell me when it hurts," she said,
"Ah yes! Right there, that's fine."
She stepped upon a pedal,
I could not believe my eyes!
A plastic plate came slamming down,
My hooter's in a vice!
My skin was stretched and mangled,
From underneath my chin.
My poor boob was being squashed,
To Swedish Pancake thin.
Excruciating pain I felt,
Within it's vice-like grip.
A prisoner in this vicious thing,
My poor defenseless tit!
"Take a deep breath" she said to me,
Who does she think she's kidding?!?
My chest is mashed in her machine,
And woozy I am getting.
"There, that's good," I heard her say,
(The room was slowly swaying.)
"Now, let's have a go at the other one."
Have mercy, I was praying.
It squeezed me from both up and down,
It squeezed me from both sides.
I'll bet SHE'S never had this done,
To HER tender little hide.
Next time that they make me do this,
I will request a blindfold.
I have no wish to see again,
My knockers getting steamrolled.
If I had no problem when I came in,
I surely have one now.
If there had been a cyst in there,
It would have gone "ker-pow!"
This machine was created by a man,
Of this, I have no doubt.
I'd like to stick his balls in there,
And see how THEY come out.

Loose Stitches said...

Fabulous card Darnell, love the sentiment and image!
Hugs, Sherry x
Loose Stitches and Unraveled Threads

Cat Craig said...

Hilarious and well timed. I can relate to them both! thanks for the Friday laughs.

Tracey McNeely said...

Awesome cards, Darnell! I LOVE those sentiments (I say as I glance at my cleavage looking for crumbs that may have collected there). he he I promise I will call on Monday and make an appointment for a mammogram. Bless you for caring enough to urge us all to do so.

Karenladd said...

Helen F. said...

I think Rhonda and I could become friends! I really like her attitude!
Fun cards, Darnell!

Julie B said...

These two ladies are a hoot Darnell, love the sediments!
On the ball as always re October and BCA. I'm ahead as my check was in July, and I only had a quick trip down the road to the mobile unit and the lovely ladies there.
Thanks for sharing at ATSM this week. :)
