Assorted cards...with NBUS

Hello there

Sunday evening here again and I am waiting for Downton Abbey to start.  Nowt on TV but on BBC 4 there is TOTP 1970s - boy I feel old as Police and Roxanne is playing from 1979!! I was still in Comprehensive then!!!!  Sting looks a little younger too!

Tonight I wanted to share two little cards I made recently, one to send to a friend as a kinda Hello card and the other a birthday card...

I used a NBUS Tim Holtz stamp that my Buddie Kim picked up for me. I stamped it with versamark ink and embossed with WOW white embossing powder.  I blanked out the "Birthday" word to make it non-birthday-have-a-cake kinda card.  The little die heart and star die cuts are made using Snippets and a NBUS Simon Says Stamp die which I collected from Kim recently.
And here is the Birthday one.  The Smile and Enjoy die cuts are NBUS Penny Black dies from Absolutely Everything.  Gosh...Blondie!!!!  I cannot believe I remember her first time round!  Of course she is now Deborah Harry now!  The purple cards I have had forever so they are VOS.

Now I am going to hit myself with a Rhythm Stick and do myself some cocoa and look for my zimmer frame while I go down to the Snippets Playground to see if the Young Ones have cleared up after last night's bonfire!  If they haven't perhaps I will thwack them with my stick!

Have a great week everyone.

Love the cards, the white on the purple looks very swish indeed... you had me laughing at the TOTPs... 1979... good grief... I was 23!! When I see those I am amazed at what we all looked like... and dressed like! LOL

First off, I hope your stumps are doing better, hun, and you be careful you don't topple off your sticks next! Whistle when you get through the gate and I'll come 'round front to collect you in the Missus' wheelbarrow!

I have to say I'm quite impressed by the lot on this post, Sam! I love how you remind us that images are meant to be altered and that fantastic architectural cupcake can be used for any number of snazzy cards! Brilliant! The coloring is divine and hey ho, way to go using tons of NBUS!! Makes my heart pitter-patter!

Steady on healing! I'm having a toast to you to that end!! Hugs, Darnell
