NBUS Challenge

Hello my crafty friends, sorry I haven't posted in a while. I have been making some cards though. Just haven't been in the mood to post and I've been trying to catch up with my commenting, or catching up as best I can. Mowing has begun and that will keep me very busy as well as keeping after the weeds. You know how it goes. I'm hoping Bret will be able to help me out some with it this year. At least the spraying part of it. I really don't mind mowing when I'm up to it. Anyway, I guess I'm saying the posting might be sporadic at best. Ok, I know I haven't posted regularly since Dwayne passed. I'm trying to get there, honest! Plus I've torn my room apart even more, so it is getting harder to get at my supplies. I do have my stamps and a few supplies in the guest bedroom, so that is helping so I can do some cards. I really want to get at my scrapbooking though, but until my room is done, that isn't going to happen! And yes, I've been really slow working on it!!! Sad I know! Savannah has spring fever and insists on going out to play or for a walk, so she is still keeping me busy as well. lol I guess you can tell who is the boss! My elderly lady is doing well and I enjoy her company. She is such a sweetie!! So that is what is going on in my neck of the woods. 

Ok, I wanted to enter Darnell's NBUS and Boo Boo Challenge. I don't have any boo boo's, not because I don't make them but because I forget and don't take pictures of them! I've got to try and remember her April 1st challenge in the future. But I have been slowly chipping away at my mountain of NBUS! I believe I used 7 NBUS's!!! So before the door closes on her challenge, which I believe is tomorrow, I am entering my card(s). As always the recipe will be at the bottom of post and if you want links let me know. I tend to be lazy and don't always put them in. As always thank you for stopping by and spending some time with me, your comments sure do make my day especially when I am feeling extra lonely. Ok here we go!

 Made several of these for the younger grands.Just thought these bunnies were to cute! Used the same design as I used on my Snowman card. Love these peeking stamps from MayMay Made It!

 This panel was in the UFO box for a few years, so got it out and stuck it on a card base.


 This stamp was sent to me from Brenda over at Inkspired to Stamp. Thanks Brenda!!! I love it!
