Hi all! 

Wow! I am so excited that I actually got to play in the NBUS Challenge #5! All the stars aligned this time for sure. Thanks, Darnell, for such a fun challenge. I've wanted to play for a long time. 

My NBUS (Never Before Used Schtuff) on this card was Swanky Snowdudes from Paper Smooches. I got this set last March in order to get a head start on my Christmas cards. Ahem. So yeah, not much of a head start, huh?

The other NBUS was a recent purchase of Prismacolor colored pencils and Gamsol. I'm super new to coloring but I think this first attempt with something other than markers wasn't too terrible!

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Not too terrible? Goodness, no, Kristi! I would never have known it was your first time coloring with pencils! I love doing that; takes me right back to my happy place as a kid.

    And how much do you love those snowdudes? I've only used mine once or twice. For a while you saw them everywhere, like the Crazy Birds that are happening now. I don't know about you, but if I see everyone doing a thing, I don't want to do it then, too. Now that the snowdudes have calmed down, I think I will be using them a lot this Christmas. They are really the dudeiest!!

    Thank you for playing in my NBUS Challenge #5 ~ so long ago! I'm delighted you finally made it work and I’m very sorry that my nursing duties have delayed me in coming by to thank you! Enjoy your day! Hugs, Darnell
