My friend the amazingly cool Darnell has a blogaversary and a wedding anniversary to celebrate and is also running the 8th NBUS challenge!   Much love and congratulations to Darnell and Hammy (oops sorry I mean Mister K) and if you haven't yet discovered her blog then you are in for a treat...

The optional challenge this week is coloured pencils on kraft.  I have to be honest, this isn't a new technique to me but as I love it I'm going to play along with it anyhow.  My NBUS are the stunning new Beautiful You stamps from SU and also the piece of twine wrapped in a kind of hairy extra, that I remembered I had and happend to match the bright brolly and coat.  It's a card for another crafty friend going through a sad time and I think the sunshine colour against the soft kraft is appropriate.


  1. Hi Anne! I'm so happy you played in my challenge (thank you!!) and did the optional theme even though you are proficient already in the cp/k technique! I love the yellow on craft and how cool that you had the bouncy twine to emphasize the cheer you are sending to your friend! I hope her situation improves soon and I hope you are well. See you on Scrabble! Hugs, Darnell

  2. I told myself that I really didn't want that stamp set but I have seen so many gorgeous cards made with it, including yours, that I think it will end up in my basket! Love the sunny yellow colours with the Kraft. I'm sure it will have cheered your friend up.


Thank you for visiting my blog, please do leave your comments, I love to read them :) Anne x
