Celebrate Darnell! NBUS#8

Joy of playing with new craft supplies?  Blessing of craft friends around the globe?  The fun of reading Darnell's posts?  Life is too Short to miss these♥

If you aren't familiar with Darnell at you are seriously missing out on a lot.  Today she's celebrating 46 years of marriage, 5 year anniversary of her delightful blog, and offering us all the chance to celebrate along with her with a surprise NBUS.  It means 'never before used stuff'....which we all have and want to use.  The fun will last three weeks and have a new theme each week.  Check it out. Play along. And even if you don't make a card, look at all the gorgeous cards there.
NBUS #8 Is to used colored pencils on kraft.

So I used some new watercolor pencils to color a new Lawn Fawn set.  I added tome little hand drawn lines, and white gel pen dots.



  1. Lovely card with a beautifully coloured image. Great sentiment too. xx

  2. Cool card Dena, the gel pen highlights are a great finishing touch : )

  3. I adore this, Dena! It's light-hearted and rustic and you did a beautiful job with your colored pencils and your doodling!! Thank you so much for the unpaid advertisement (mwah) and for playing in my NBUS Challenge #8! Enjoy your day!! Hugs, Darnell
