NBUS #37 - Guest Designer

The lovely Darnell has been having guest designers on her innovative NBUS blog.  That stands for Never Before Used Schtuff, in case you didn't know.  And if you didn't know, where have you been?  :D  I was honored to be asked to be the guest designer for April and here is my card using the newest product in my stash.

The new portion is the cross from the set Happy Easter - New Beginnings from SSS.  It was stamped with Memento London Fog and colored with Altenew artist markers.  I used scalloped and regular ovals from MFT to cut the image and border from PTI Lovely Lady.  The panel was debossed with Altenew's Dotted Starburst and bordered with the same pink cardstock.  

As some of you know, I send cards to the homebound people of my former church.  I made six of these to go to some of them and will use another couple of stamps from the set for the rest. I started this ministry while I was still a part of the church.  They don't know the cards come from me since I sign them "from your church family".  I knew that it was a way to keep them connected to the church and since I love making cards I decided to keep up the ministry.  I've lost a few and gained a few others but it brings me joy to know that several times a year they get a handmade card with a Bible passage inside.

If you haven't check out the NBUS challenge I hope you will.  It's a good way to share what you're working on with the new products you've purchased and see what others are doing with theirs.

Hello, Bobby! I'm happy to meet you through Darnell's NBUS challenge! It's a kind thing you do, sending cards to homebound folks. I know it means the world to them when they receive something so pretty and thoughtful in the mail.
