CASology Week 129: NBUS







Hello and happy Tuesday.  I am just so excited today because we have a special challenge going on this week at CASology.  We are teamed up with none other than Darnell of djkardkreations.  Our cue word this week is a word (more like an acronym) made up by Darnell herself--NBUS.  It stands for Never-before-used-schtuff.

So, grab something new, and start creating.  It can be something you just bought, or something you bought ages and ages ago--the choice is yours.  But, I'm sure you've got something on hand that you HAD to have at the time, and now is sitting unloved.  Pull it out and give it some love. Then, post your beautiful creation here and over at Darnell's, where she is hosting a NBUS Challenge #3.


I am ashamed to admit that I had a hard time deciding what to use, as I have many, many choices.  In the end, I decided to use a set of Impression Obsession cat dies, as I spoke to a good friend over the weekend, and she is about to say goodbye to her cat of 15 years.




Will you play along this week?  I sure hope so.  What NBUS will you pull out?   Check out the beautiful designs from the CASology Design Team members and see how they were inspired by NBUS.  You can link up at CASology as well as over at Darnell's.  Don't forget to keep your card Clean and Simple, if you are playing along with CASology.



Thanks for Visiting
