NUBS - or- Using up the stash!

Hi Folks,  well as the title suggests -time to use. Although I haven't had much time for crafting lately, I have still been having a little purchase now and then - and putting them in the 'hope to get used' box.   Now is the time to open the box and get them used!
I've used a large tag 7"x3 1/2" , inked up my background, but as usual most of it's covered up - but this time I did remember to take a photo .  I used a 'home made' stencil cut from Tim's Frameworks die.
My main image is from Artistic Outpost's Think and Wonder set, which I bought at a local show about three months ago and this is the first time it's been used.  I also stamped one of the quotes down the side.  I love these two little friends, especially as they took so little to colour.
My flower was made with a WOW  'pansy'  mould  (bought in March and again first time it's been used) and Martha Stewart Paper clay.
I am linking this tag to Darnell's 500 Followers NBUS Challenge - Anything Goes (NBUS - never-before-used-schtuff),  and although I'm not the best of visitors - it's always an entertaining read whenever I do, so please pop over and say 'hello',

                                    
and I'm sure you have some NBUS hiding away, so why not join in Darnell's Challeng.

That's all from me today, so thanks for visiting and enjoy the rest of your day.
Avril xx

Beautiful tag and I like that sweet flower. I have the WOW shabby rose but the pansy looks to be equally beautiful.
A delightful tag.
