What's NBUS? It's an acronym for Never Before Used Schtuff, all those lovely things that we crafters simply can't do without - and then get them home and never play with them. Don't you dare pretend you haven't got any, because I know you have! The term was coined by the lovely Darnell of djkardkreations who is hosting the challenge, one of a series of occasional challenges.
To play along, crack open that schtuff and give it some love! Ink those stamps, stop just stroking those papers, peel off those stickers and use them in the way their creators intended us to! And then head over to Darnell's blog by September 5th and share with us what you've created.
My card uses two lots of NBUS, a house mouse stamp sheet called Love Chocolate Heart which I think I won from the Playground - I'd been reluctant to cut into the rubber because I'm always scared that my colouring skillz aren't good enough to do justice to house mouses, and a pad of paper called Simply Creative Shabby Chic, which was in a recent goody bag I won. The paper clips I've added are a mixture of ones from my stationery drawer and ones from a very old HOTP kit.
