NBUS = Bird Crazy Birthday Card

Hello Blog Friends, 
Just popping in to share this Birthday card I made for Jim's birthday I thought I would enter it into Darnell's NBUS challenge #6 here at djkardkreations .

NBUS is a anachronism that stands for .......
Never Before Used Schtuff  and that is mostly what I used for Jim's card.

This happy little chappie is of course one of Mr Tim Holtz crazy birds, I got him into the party mood by dressing him up in a party hat and matching tie (crazy bird not Jim!) 
I coloured him with Distress markers gave him some odd googly eyes and popped him up on a boingy spring for fun  (Jim not crazy bird)!!! 
Boy do those Distress markers do what they say on the tin, after spilling his party drink down his front whilst doing the Hokey Kokey dance he was well and truly blended!
Least said soonest mended I think! 

Soooo my Never Before Used Stuff are
Tim Holtz Crazy Bird and Crazy Things Stamps
Tim Holtz Happy Holiday Thinlits Die
Hobbycraft, musical notes stamp 
Basic Grey Sweet Threads paper pad
Tim Holtz Distress core'dination card
Tim Holtz ShadowPress Sentiments set
Tim Holtz Distress markers and inks
Action Wobble spring

I would just like to Congratulate Darnell on NBUS challenge  #6 and it's hugely successful response.
Thanks for your visit today hope you have a great weekend
Happy Art Making
