Waste Not Wednesdays wk11

Another Wednesday, and that means it's a new week for my little Waste Not Wednesdays challenge - where you can use anything that's been a bit neglected or forgotten, anything at all that needs using.  The lovely Sally-Ann at DigiStamp Boutique has offered a fab prize this week, here's what you could win...


The super cute new Easter Collection 2 - aren't they lovely?!

I wasn't sure if I'd even have a card today, I'm not feeling well at all - rotten colds, wish all these germs would get lost!  But I popped round to my auntie's this morning with the mother's day cards she ordered from me, and she gave me some Lemsip Max - I felt much better for a while after that, so I made what should have been a quick card.



I've used some Stampin' Up stamps that I haven't inked up until now, they're not exactly old but I hadn't got round to using them yet... and I needed something simple!  I also used my new stamp-a-ma-jig, also from Stampin' Up, which I thought would make placing everything on this card a lot easier, but I still binned my first 2 attempts!  Anyway, it was made by masking a circle and stamping the alphabet text stamp over it, then masking and inking the circle, I also masked and inked around the edges of the text.  The giraffe and sentiment are also Stampin' Up, and I added some ancient pink gems from my stash - they actually match the pale pink much better than the photos show.

When I had the idea for this design, I'd planned on making several of them in different colours, but it drove me so mad I don't think I can be bothered to make any more of them lol!

I also made this for the one-layer 'script' challenge at Less is More - I haven't had time or any CAS ideas for the last couple of weeks so I missed the last 2 challenges - sorry Chrissie and Mandi, hope I'm forgiven!
