It's a NBUS Challenge! (Never-Before-Used-Schtuff!)

"Hello Everyone... I'm Back AGAIN - Grin - and today I am sharing these four totally cute cards I created using three stamp sets that I have had for years, but have NEVER used... (I KNOW right?)  and this is all thanks to an AMAZING blogger I stumbled across this year and just have to share with you,
Ms. Darnell J. Knauss of DJ Kard Kreations!

I love so many things about this awesome woman and her blog... things like:
- She came  up with the acronym:  NBUS (never-been-used-schtuff) and holds challenges devoted to it;
- That she signs off with "Enjoy your day! No, seriously, enjoy.  LITS!*" *LITS (Life is too short);
 - That she named her craft place "The Playhouse" and it's totally cute;
 - That she has a "Friends Corner" where she introduces the blogs of new members of her Blog... Like she did for me HERE! in this March Blog Post ... (scroll down to her "Friends Corner" - grin)

- and Finally the thing I LOVE THE MOST about her is that when she finds a card she loves and "scraplifts" the idea, that she then BLOGS about it - shows the original - shows her version - and gives the owner CREDIT... seriously, seriously COOL! 
One day I want to travel to Texas Ooops, I mean Northern  California and meet this woman... happy sigh.    Darnell this one's for YOU...
So here are my cards created because Ms. Darnell is having another NUBS Challenge and I want to participate... 
All these cards were created from scraps of leftover paper, some already sprayed with dylusions inks, (see the coral?) I just stamped right on top of pre-sprayed paper and cut them out.. cool huh? 

Plus I used two Dylusion stamps sets by Dyan Reaveley that I HAD to have; that I spent CRAZY money on and that have never been inked by me! grin
And I used these awesome typewriter sayings that I bought in a dollar store in 2009 and have NEVER USED! So THANK YOU Ms. Darnell... you are making me use my NBUS! Grin...
Today I am entering these cards into the following challenges:

Thanks for stopping by to share and please do leave me a comment if you like what you are seeing!

  1. What a karack up you are, Lynne! I so LOVE your enthusiasm and I'm so appreciative of your effusive shout out!! You'll have to remind me of the amount of money I agreed to pay you for the promotion, lol!! Your cards seem to be a perfect reflection of your bright, goofy, and warm personality! I love, love, love them all! So much FUN!! I'm delighted that my NBUS Challenge provided the motivation you needed to give this schtuff some love and I appreciate that you are playing in the challenge!! I would totally love to meet you, too, but I don't think you'll find me in Texas! I'm not sure where that came from, but you'll find me in northern California! lol! Hugs, Darnell
