September NBUS

When I look at the date on my last post, I have to wonder where the time has gone.  I just finished my first card  in three weeks! I have been busy cleaning out and managed to take a load to Good Will this last weekend.  Also I have begun changing some stamps from wood mount to cling to save room.  I am finding stamps that I didn't remember I had.  More about that later. 

But tonight, stamping with the Cardologists, I shared my Penny Black 'party time' stamps.  I love these hedgehogs.  Lola shared her happy birthday die which sparked the inspiration for this card and her embossing folder that made the dots.   

It looks a little funny in the picture, but that is a layer of sparkly paper which makes the card a little more festive. 

And since this is the first time I used this set, I can enter this card, just under the wire at the Darnell's NBUS Challenge #5.    This challenge to use 'never been used stuff' is great fun and hugely popular.  I hope you check it out if this is the first you are hearing of it.

Thanks for stopping by.


  1. Those hedgehogs are so sweet! Love how they look as if they would interact! Thanks for sharing these stamps with us!

  2. Oh how adorable are these hedgehogs celebrating someone's birthday!?
    Such a fun card, Dora :-)

  3. Oh, giggle, could anything be cuter than that hedgie hanging on to that balloon for dear life? This is adorable in every way, Dora, and I especially love the layer of sparkly paper! Thank you so much for playing in my NBUS Challenge #5 ~ which was so long ago now! I’m sorry that nursing the Mister back to good health has delayed my visit to thank you. Enjoy your day! Good job doing a purge and finding NBUS you didn't even know you had! Use it up!! Hugs, Darnell
