A little bit of retreat NBUS

Darnell has launched her latest NBUS Challenge and here is my first card for it.  As I was lucky enough to meet the lovely Darnell on her recent UK tour, at Southampton and again at retreat, I thought I'd use some of the NBUS that found it's way to my stash as a direct result of the retreat.  Neets, who is a long time blogging friend from my Less is More days had brought some We R Memory Keepers Next Level embossing folders which she kindly let me play with.  Of course, I had to get them :).  Embossing folder used on the kraft card blank.  Katzelkraft cat stamp is also NBUS, sentiment is computer generated.  I tore the front of my card, have seen something similar on Pinterest using this stamp.

My card is for the following challenges:
Simon Says - hip to be square
Addicted to CAS - silhouette

Return from a break...

I've had a break from papercrafting and from blogging for a few weeks.  I've been quilting, I've had a holiday and life has also got in the way.  However I am now gearing up to take part in Darnell's 7th NBUS Challenge and felt I needed to make a card to get my eye in.

So I got my much loved and used Crazy Birds and accessories out, added a SU sentiment and covered a few of my favourite challenges...  Balloons and hat masked, coloured with Copics and some Glossy Accents added the eyes.  Image trimmed to a square, edged with Copics and popped up onto a card.
