Love To Garden

I had great fun putting this card together using NBUS
what did you say?
What is NBUS....well I'll give you a lesson....
Over on Darnell's blog, she has created this word "NBUS"
and I  LOVE it...oh wait , you need to know what it means
 "Never Before Used Stuff"
I bet you have plenty of that don't you...come on, tell the truth!!
Isn't that a great word, I wonder if it will make it in the dictionary??
 
 
So, back to my card, I used NBUS!!
I won the "bling" stamp set (the word love) at least 4 years ago from Gina K, I think
the idea is to put "bling" in all those little circles...now that would be a lot of bling!
I liked it just like it is, plus it fit my challenge better
My other NBUS is the recently purchased Stampendous Seeds Background stamp
I love this stamp, and am so glad I got to put it to use!
And lets not leave out the Lockhart apron stamp....
I had ordered an apron stamp from somewhere and this one was sent to me by mistake...
When I contacted them, they told me to keep the "mistake" and sent me the one I ordered..
So very nice, but this was several years ago as well...NBUS again!! 
 
Now that , that is out of the way...lol...it brings us to the challenge I am entering...
I subscribe to Papercrafters Corner and have for quite sometime...
Every Monday they have a MAGAZINE MONDAY  challenge
 using a magazine cover for inspiration....
Here is this weeks cover.....

 
 
Isn't it cute??
I focused on the colors, the polka dots, and the word "love"...
If you notice Minnie's shoes, they are yellow, so I brought a splash of yellow in
with the towel hanging from the apron....
you can't tell in the photo but, the towel was stamped on a NBUS yellow velour paper....
And last, usually Minnie is wearing a bow on her head, so I added the red satin bow....
That's it .......so......head on over and give it a try!!

Oh, yes, I am SO working on my NBUS! This is so cute! LOVE! Funny how that NBUS is such great stuff but it somehow doesn't get used and doesn't get used...
