CASology #129


Welcome to Week 129 of CASology!  Take a look at the cue word for this week:


There may be a few people scratching their heads at this cue word but I'm pretty sure that most of you will be aware of Darnell and her NBUS (Never Before Used Schtuff) challenges.  Darnell is hands down one of the funniest (and most supportive) cardmakers in our crafty corner of the Blogosphere and if you've never visited her over in her playhouse then you must go immediately and read a post or two.  Just be sure not to drink anything while reading her stories - it's a dangerous combo!  :)  


 Anyway Darnell is currently running the third installment of her NBUS challenge so we decided to play along with her.  The hello die you see on my card is one I just got for Christmas and the washi tape has been kicking around for well over a year before finally making it onto a project.

Are you ready to join us?  You can play along with CASology and with Darnell this week.  Just use a product on your card that you've never used before.  It can be something new you got recently or something covered with an inch of dust.  Just make sure this is it's maiden voyage!  Be sure to check out the brilliant designs from the rest of the DT gals and then get to work!

Oh, Jen, thank you for your sweet words of love and support! You know I love you back! And wow do I love your bright and happy hello card! Is that your doodling/zentangling that you colored for your excellent border? How fun and delightful!! It brings back memories of doodling in homeroom when I should have been doing homework!

It's been a thrill to play with you and the DT gals at CASology! Thank you for that! I hope you will link your card over at my NBUS Challenge!! Mwah! Darnell
