Waste Not Wednesdays wk8

It's Wednesday yet again, so that means it's time for this week's instalment of my little Waste Not Wednesdays challenge - my bid to use up lots of stash and get uninked stamps or digis onto cards.  Everyone is welcome to play along, if you have your own neglected stash that needs using (don't we all?!).




Ok, so this week I've used a fairly new stamp but it was previously uninked - my lovely friend Kathleen bought me this sweet little Sugar Nellie stamp for my birthday.  There's plenty of other very old stuff on my card though.

I've coloured 'Best Day Ever' with promarkers, flexmarkers and prisma pencils.  The papers are some forgotten ones from K&Co, probably about 3yrs old.  The bow was made from tulle that I bought when I was making my wedding favours, so I've had that nearly 6yrs... for some reason I've got LOADS of it, in more than one colour, so one pale pink bow hasn't really used much of it up lol!  The pink rose is from Wild Orchid Crafts and the gorgeous beaded trim was in the bag of offcuts that my mum's boss sent me - I love this stuff :o)

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:

I'm still losing the battle to keep up with you all... Dex has got a rotten cold and has been off nursery this week, and hubby's Granddad is in hospital following a heart attack, so it's all a bit chaotic here.  Hoping next week will be better!

I'll be round to see all your lovely Waste Not Wednesday creations, so feel free to play along, just for fun again this week :o)

Elizabeth said...

A very pretty card and that trim is gorgeous. I thought that I'd submit a card this week for the first time, although I've been following for a while, because the stamp I've used has been stashed away unused until today. The card base I've used is definitely more than 6 years old, though I have forgotten just how old it is ... put it this way I moved home to Scotland in 2002 and I brought it with me then :) Sorry to hear that your loved ones are not so well - hope they both recover quickly.
