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!

Another NBUS Challenge!!

I am sure there was NEVER any doubt in anyone's mind that
She maybe didn't think it would happen so soon, but we knew it, right?  She is ONE special lady, and that includes her little "hammy" too!
You will have to go to her blog to read the rules of this challenge just click on the highlighted words above and it will take you right there!  The acronym is one Darnell thought up all my herself!
Or did she have a little help...?
Never-Before-Used-Schtuff (Stamps, Dies, EFs, etc.)
I have a couple of "Never Before Used Schtuff"!!
The first is the cloud impression folder I have had a month or two, just never used!
The second is the bunny and balloons because it is NEW!  I just got it and had to ink it right up.
Darnell, you are a joy to read and get to know, if you ever take a road trip up north, you must look me up...perfect time of year to visit the Pacific Northwest and our coast is beautiful!!
I decided this would be a baby girl card, so I colored the balloons with many of the copics I have in those pretty pink/red shades.  I better do one in blues, too, huh?  Oh, and I added glossy accents to the balloons...oh it is so sweet and shiny in real life!!
Congrats on reaching another milestone, Darnell!!
I love watching your followers grow and even more I love your humor, your stories and your awesome talent!
Heart Hugs!


  1. Heart hugs back to you, Colleen! Thank you for those glowing words that melted my heart and made my head huge. It actually could use a little inflation, you know. Any time I get together with my sisters, I'm the one with the little pin head. Seriously, my head is noticeably smaller than all of their heads. What the heck? Okay, never mind, that's a whole nother show!

    Your card is the sweetest! You must make a boy version! I've seen that little image before and now you have me longing for it again. And the cloud e/f. Sigh. I'll bet it really is fabulous and glossy IRL!!

    Thank you so much for playing in my second NBUS Challenge! And, yes, absototalutely, if I ever get up there (which could happen b/c we LOVE where you live!), I will come and see you! Hugs, Darnell

  2. Col, this is just too cute. Great baby card.

  4. So very precious!!! I love this for a baby card and the balloons and clouds make me smile. Love it!

  5. This is a darling image and perfect for a cute baby card. The cloud embossing folder is great for this. Love those shiny balloons. I think a blue balloon card is necessary too, you never know!
