I was so happy to see that the fabulous Darnell is hosting her 7th NBUS challenge!
For the un-initiated, NBUS stands for never-before-used-schuff. The reason I love this challenge so much, is that it makes me look at my stash, and all those items I simply had to have, then put away in my cupboard to be completely forgotten about.
Admit it, you have plenty of those too! ;-)
So, I decided to play along using a gorgeous Craftwork cards paper pad with beautiful nautical papers, which have been languishing at the back of y 8x8 box, unused, for more than a year! I teamed it with an Inkylicious twinchie stamp I've used once before (OBUS?) to make a useful card to replenish my dwindling "for the gents" stock!
Factoid for the day for the nautically challenged: The reason a ship's speed is measured in "knots", is because back in the 15th century they measured the speed using a knotted rope tied to a piece of wood, which would be thrown in the water. They would count the amount of knots that passed through their hands as the rope played out during a set amount of time, and that's how they figured out how fast they were going.
Thus the addition of my knotted piece of rope, even if my knots aren't quite the required 14.4 meters apart!
Anyways, enough waffle. I'm off to play over at Darnell's Playhouse I know she'd love to have you come play too!
Have a fantabulous weekend!
