NBUS - #1 and MIM #169

If you love card challenges half as much as I do, you need to head (no make that rush) on over to visit Darnell Knauss!
She has a Blog filled with wonderful humor and fabulous card creations, which is a treat by itself.  She has started a challenge site because her followers reached 500 (well 500+ now). 

Congratulations, Darnell, but I am not surprised at this number at all!  This LINK will take you to her NBUS Challenge #1. 
Oh, and while you are there, do take a tour of her amazing "Playhouse" which is sure to make your jaw drop.

I bet I could enter this contest 100 times with all the NBUS I own and can't seem to resist buying more every time I hit Michael's or Hobby Lobby or any store for that matter~can anyone relate?!?  However, her "rules" ask us to only enter 3 cards ~ but, Darnell  is constantly finding new challenges in Blogland that she's sharing with us, so maybe I can use up some schtuff that way.   ;-)

  1. Eep! Helen, your lion is so adorable on his sweet polka-dotted grass! I mean, polka-dotted grass, how much cuter can it get than that?!! Oh, how about a cork arrow? That's even cuter still!! This is just fun all over and I love and appreciate that you entered it in my NBUS Challenge!

    Thank you, too, for all your super kind words and for posting my button to spread the word!! Now I really must take some time and check out that MIM challenge ... and if you would like to see a list of other challenges, I have a tab for them at the top of my blog! Hugs, Darnell

  2. Your card is adorable, Helen! I love the cute little scene you created. The lion is sweet and I like how you made the grass. I also like how you added colour to the embossed background! Thank you for your kind comments on my blog and for following me - I am following you now! Looking forward to seeing all your crafty creations!

  3. I agree! Darnell is a rare find in blogland : ) Your card is GREAT!! I love that little lion ; )
