A birthday mix of old and NBUS

 Hello crafty friends and welcome!
It seems like it's been a long time since I've posted anything,
so I'm changing that right now. :)
Here's a card I've made using a mix of older
and new stash:

and the inside:

Like probably most of you, I took advantage of one of the
gazillion sales at the end of last year/beginning of this year.
My NBUS is the layered flower dies from Altenew.
(I may have pulled a 'Jennifer McGuire' and made
a bunch of these)

After a few days of cutting and slowly gluing these
together, I needed another day or so for my eyesight
to readjust. LOL!
I love a little bit of snark on the inside of a card,
so, this sentiment was perfect.
(This will be sent to my best friend, who's birthday
is coming up!)

We survived the current storm, with a couple inches of snow
which turned into a rain/sleet mix. Happy times. Not.
I can't wait until warmer weather shows up.

That's it for now. More cards to make!
Thanks for visiting!

  2. I love everything both new and old about your card! You'll be ready to make more with all those spare flowers. Great idea. I see you are a fellow Golden Retriever mom. My Wally and LuLu keep my smiling all the time.

  4. You would make JM happy to see all your die cuts, Chrispy! I love your first card made with them. You can never go wrong with a beautiful floral design made from a mix of old and new, especially with pretty bling and a snark surprise on the inside!🤣 Thank you so much for inspiring everyone at NBUS! Happy New Year! Hugs, Darnell
