Hello.  Welcome.  Orange.  Squares.  NBUS.  Perfect.  

I had to check the spelling of this very annoying word.  I remember my nephew used to say it.  Again and again and again and again.  It used to drive me a little crazy.  But this evening it just seemed perfect for this cute little birdie (NBUS).  I swiped my embossed card with Ripe Persimmon distress ink.  Added Lost Coast Whimsical Flora stamped on patterned paper and coloured with sharpies.  Then I die cut the words using 5 of the Sizzix Ida Lou alphabet dies.  

Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz
