NBUS Christmas with a little Mojo

It's time for another NBUS (Never-Before-Used-Schtuff) challenge on Darnell's blog.  (Congrats to Darnell on meeting another follower milestone!)    The rules are simply to use those virginal stamps that are languishing in your stash on a new creation.  Any new "schtuff" is fine - although Darnell notes that old virginal stamps really need some attention.  I didn't follow that part of the rule today as this "schtuff" came in my mail today!!

Merry and Bright

This is the brand new Lawn Fawn set Snow Day along with a little wooden snowflake from Lawn Fawn.  I pre-ordered them so long ago that I had forgotten about them, so the mail today was a very pleasant surprise!

I used the sketch from Mojo Monday.


The NBUS challenge is open clear until September 25th so there is plenty of time to play.  Plus, Darnell is kind enough to offer prizes and you can link three cards to get into the drawing for those prizes.



  • Stamps: Lawn Fawn Snow Day
  • Paper: Simon Says Lipstick Red, Fog, MME Mistletoe Magic
  • Ink: Simon Says Smoke, Lipstick Red, Papertrey Ink Simply Chartreuse
  • Accessories: Lawn Fawn Snow Day dies and Snowflake Wood Veneer, Zing Glitter Blue Embossing

From hearing about the happy mail to seeing your charming card, your post has me smiling! The polka dot tree-decorating scene is pure adorable; not only are the critters cuteness+++, but the wee bow and snowflake? Seriously delightful!
