Darnell is just a riot!  I love to read her blog.  NBUS is something we all suffer from, so I dug around and here is what I came up with.

I have to admit where I got this idea.  I have a pair of pajamas and they have bikes all over them with this sentiment.  I ride my bike almost everyday and I love it. Along with an old never used stamp set, I thought this would be my theme for the NBUS Challenge #6.

The NBUS on this card is the word "RIDE" using the stamp set Sketchbook Letters by Hero Arts.  I won the stamp set in a contest a year or two ago along with many other things that I also have not used. The letters are big and have these sketchy lines on them that most of the time look out of place.  So I just thought of another NBUS - the stamp word "beautiful" is from the stamp set Everyday Words by Impression Obsession. Never used it because it is BRAND NEW!  25 different words in a bold script and I am sure this will become a go to stamp set since it can makes dozens of expressions.  "Life is a" comes from a Simon Says Stamp set called Life is a Journey.  I think the three different fonts all work well together. I heat embossed the text with white embossing powder. The bicycle die is from Memory Box, Brand New Bicycle and hard to see, but it is hot pink glitter paper.  Plain black paper and it is done.

Thank you Darnell for the chance to enter your contest.  I have to say, crafting makes life a beautiful ride!

Thank you for visiting.

  1. I agree, Susan! Crafting is part of what makes life a beautiful ride! I love that bike die and how you have blended all those different company fonts into a cohesive sediment! You've got a good eye for design!! Thank YOU for your kind words and for playing in my NBUS Challenge #6! I apologize for taking so long to come by and thank you. Enjoy your day!! Hugs, Darnell
