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 card for NBUS Challenge

When Linda was here visiting me,  we went to the Craft Warehouse in Beaverton and had a lot of fun roaming that many goodies!  I purchased some Fall Home accessories, like leaves and acorns etc.  But they have a wonderful paper crafting area too!
Well, shame on me, but I went back yesterday with my two daughters!  While they were looking for Fall Home accessories, I was looking at stamps and dies and other things crafty related.  I spotted this Penny Black Stamp:  Fragrant and thought it would be so pretty to water color or even use copics.  I stamped it on watercolor paper and used my Zig Clear Real Brush Markers.  The sentiment is from SSS:  Handwritten Borders.
Since this is a NEW stamp (hmmm, I have plenty already in my stash that need to see ink, but love playing with most recent new ones!) I will join in the NBUS Challenge!
You have until next Friday the 18th to link up any NEW TO YOU STAMP or DIE or NEVER-BEFORE USED SCHTUFF!!  go to Darnell's blog to check out the rules and all the awesome prizes she will be randomly giving away!!
