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


  1. I love that torn edge with the climbing cat. I've got cat card ideas after seeing this now. Thanks for sharing your no-longer-NBUS with us!

  2. That embossing folder is so cool. I remember seeing it at the retreat and thinking I must get that! I love the silhouette of the cat - what a hoot! xx

  3. Wonderful card, love the 3D embossing folder, also the way you have used the stamp. I love this stamp so much, it always cracks me up.

  4. As you know from FB, I absolutely love this card, Anne! I have those fab e/fs and and this one is perfect for your catnip-loving kitty!! The torn paper does take it over the top!! Thank you for your support playing in my NBUS Challenge #7! Hugs, Darnell
