How-deeeeeee!


Howdy - and happy Monday to everyone!  What better way to start off the week than with a big smile!  Isn't this little gal precious!  LOL!  Gotta love her all decked out in her finery for today.  Oh, and before you even ask......no, I do not dress this way at all even though I do live in Texas.  

Anyway........The stamp I used is from Art Impressions and that sentiment - which I've never used before and can be considered NBUS (more on that in a sec) is from Riley and Company. The blue jean looking paper was from my stash and also the red and white polka dots.  I kept this (as I do all my cards anyway) very simple and it's going to be an easy mailer!

Back to the NBUS........Darnell is a very talented blogger and one sweet and funny lady.  She will keep you smiling for sure....whether you have teeth or not!  She recently reached 500 followers and decided to have a little challenge about NBUS (never-before-used-schtuff) and friendship.  My card will go to a friend to let them know I'm thinking about them.  The NBUS is my sentiment and  that blue jean paper.

Thanks for stopping by..........
Lynn

LOL, Lynn! You forgot to mention that you specifically used that sediment because of my "life is too short" tag line!! That's what caught my eye right away! She really is a friendly gal and I love how you dressed her and framed her! That little gingham ribbon is the perfect punctuation!!

Thank you for your kind words, my friend, for joining in my NBUS Challenge, posting my button, and spreading the word! I appreciate it very much!! Hugs, Darnell

(P.S. I recently discovered Riley and Company and have a bunch of NBUS sediments from them. It was hard not to buy them all!)
