Card #2

I really really love Darnell's NBUS challenges and I know you all do too by the number of entries she always gets :-)

Well, it is the perfect opportunity to whittle down those mountains of newly (or long-ago) purchased stamps, inks, papers, markers, ribbons, embellishments, etc. etc. etc.   Thank you, Darnell!! 
 * Why do I need a challenge to bring out these sadly neglected crafty items to my desk? 
 * Why am I in the Craft stores and on line shopping for new schtuff weekly (yeah, it's probably more often than that)?
I might as well ask "What is the meaning of life?"
