One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

I bet you all know DARNELL,  right?
She now has 500 followers!!  WOW, I can see why, she is so talented and so gifted with the pen..
OH!  I mean the keyboard.
Seriously that girl can put a giggle in you any time of the day, go check her out
and if you are not already a follower, then join her will NOT be disappointed!
She has a few rules to follow and the most important one is it has to be NBUS!!
She made up that acronym!!
It stands for: never-before-used-schtuff!!
So Yes, my sweet little Lawn Fawn set Year Four has been sitting in my basket for months, so it qualifies for this challenge!
I pulled out a few other stamp sets too, PTI:  Little Bitty Birdie for the sentiment; Garden Variety for the grass, Paper Smooches for the pole the bird is sitting on; Back Pocket Basics for the sun, and Up, Up and Away for the cloud! 
Six stamp sets to make this one little bitty card for Darnell!
I colored with copics.
I have a feeling you will be hosting another challenge in the very near future!!


  1. This is so cute! I have unused Lawn Fawn stamps too but I love them. They are the cutest stamps.

  2. Love the DP frame and these sweet little critters! A fun card for a fun lady!

  3. Aw, gee, I didn't even know I could blush this red! Thank you so much for all those head-swelling compliments, Colleen, and for playing in my NBUS challenge! I love that you not only used that adorable NBUS, and applied the friendship theme, but you used all those different companies, too! This card makes me really happy!! Hugs, Darnell

  4. I saw this on Darnell’s blog and it sure caught my eye. Its adorable! I have this but have not used it much . What a sweet post for sweet Darnell!

  5. This is so cute. What a fun little scene.

  6. Oh how cute is this!!!! I saw this on Darnell's challenge and the beautiful colours just leapt out at me.. wonderful work, Shaz in oz.x

  7. Such a cute card and love the smiley face sun.

  8. What a great card. I love the happy sun. I think our sun gives us the evil eye (103 today) and isn't happy at all. I love Lawn Fawn. I don't buy many of them though because they'd all end up NBUS.... which is complete silly. I got to get over myself!

  9. A fun card all the way.Smiles for all. loving it.

  10. Oh how adorable your card is, Colleen! LOVE the sweetness of all the different stamp sets you used :-)
