Happy Saturday Friends!

I'm off to help a neighbor at her church this morning but wanted to share a quick card that I made primarily for Darnell's NBUS Challenge.  

I've had this challenge on my todo list since she posted it 
(6 days ago!) and finally got around to creating something 
now that the time is half gone.  Geesh!  
Hope you like it.

Most everything used on this card
has never been used before!  That tells me
I have way too much 'schtuff' ... but I'm okay with that!  LOL

This sweet little one looks sad about something!
I'm assuming she's missed someone's birthday ... hence
the opportunity to use the 'My Sentiments Exactly! 
'Birthdays innies & outies' stamp set.

The background paper is from a set I bought a year or so ago
while out visiting BFF Diane (Nellie's Nest) and FINALLY
put it to use.  Also the Nuvo Navy Blue Crystal Drops
was an enablement of Diane lol!

I used the Sue Wilson 'Pierced Flags' for my sentiment
and since it was shorter than the stamped sentiment,
I simply die cut half way then turned it around and
die cut half way again ... giving me a longer flag.

Other challenges to share in:

Gotta go! 
Thanks for stopping by ... have a great weekend!
As always . . .

That's adorable and very funny at the same time, Darlene! Great job making the flag banner fit the sediment and I love the papers you used! Thank you so much for playing in my NBUS Challenge #12!! Hugs, Darnell

Me, oh, my, what a cute sentiment for a belated birthday! Yes, that darling little fairy girl does look sorry, but oh, so cute. Pretty colors, and your blue Nuvo drops are perfect. Don't we all have plenty of NBUS? I'm catching up little by little.
