NBUS #5-card 3


Wow, have you been by to visit Darnell's Blog yet?  A couple of hundred crafty folks have entered her NBUS challenge so far and there are 5 more days to go! And here I was thinking I was the only one with a ton (seriously, there's a ton!) of never before used schtuff  ;-)

I am entering my final card here but promise to keep on using my way-too-long-hoarded goodies on a regular basis. Thanks for the shove in that direction with you awesome challenges, Darnell.

  • I love Paris stamp by Stampendous
  • Corner Punch on black cardstock 
  •  110# Black Cardstock
I have been wanting this stamp for a long time, but didn't want to pay the $14.95 price tag. So when I saw it at our 'new' local Michael's for $3.49 (not sure why they had it on clearance?) I gleefully snapped it up.  
This card is going to friends who are taking a Cruise through France. 

PS:  Quite honestly, I'm not sure what else I would use this stamp for, so if you know of anyone going to Paris ...


  1. Helen this is so pretty,I love the pink and black! Sounds like a great price to me! Hope you have a wonderful weekend friend!

  2. Oh you're funny! Glad someone else thinks they have to have something & then realizes they really don't have much use for it! However, your card is beautiful & perfect for your friends & with such a great deal I'd say it was worth it!

  3. I love a good bargain, and that Eiffel Tower stamp looks like a good one. How convenient that you know someone going to France. This is such a pretty card, and I think I would be willing to go to France just to get a card like this.

  4. Hi Maria so good to see you again! Love your Paris inspired card, the flowers are beautiful on the Eiffel Tower!

  5. A sweet card. Black and pink are a great combo.

  6. Pink and black are perfect for your Paris card, Helen!
