St. Patrick's Day NBUS

Saturday Sketch #401 with NBUS (never-before-used-schtuff)!!

and Tic Tac Toe #5

Elephant in the room CCC#301

 Excited to use my new St. Patrick's Day elephant from Bugaboo and new washi tape from Little B on Cathy's sketch at Saturday Sketch. The washi is edged with Shimmer Trim from Close To My Heart. NBUS is Darnell's own special thing. Darnell has been an inspiration, a supporter of my crafty efforts, and I think of her as my blog-friend.  In September I was traveling and missed her NBUS challenge - I am sooo happy she is having a spring event!!
For Tic Tac Toe I used Green, Gold and some shamrocks from the photo inspiration. AND of course, there is an elephant here, and a new to me challenge place City Crafter!  

The Bugaboo image was cut with a 21/2" punch and colored with Copics. The buckle was colored with a Close To My Heart metallic marker.  The green scallop was cut with the 3" punch, and all popped with some foam tape on the center panel. Stash twine and flower finished it off.
