Hello Friend

Monday, June 9, 2014

I wanted to play in Darnell's NBUS challenge that she has going on to celebrate her reaching 500 followers. I used this gorgeous stencil from MFT as my NBUS item.

I'm also entering this into the current challenge at TIME OUT Challenges which is summer with the optional twist of flowers. I think my card fits the bill.

Edited to add: Thanks to Darnell who pointed out my card fits the current challenge at Stampin' Celebration.

***Supplies***

Make sure and go check out Darnell's challenge and her blog if you are not familiar with her fabulous work and her equally fabulous writing and humor that she brings to her blog posts -- you won't be disappointed one little bit. Congrats Darnell. I'm predicting that it won't be very long until you have 1000 followers.

I too saw your card on Darnell's challenge. MFT products I love to use and I visited the store last month while on vacation. This card is great and I will not only CASE it but I put it on Pinterest.
