Waste Not Wednesdays wk15

It's week 15 of Waste Not Wednesdays... although I suppose really it's week 16 as I left the linky open for 2wks last time - better not confuse myself too much though eh?!  Thanks to everyone who joined in, and if I haven't managed to visit you yet, I will do later.  I also need to announce the winner of my little prize and the lucky one is...

Number 8 - Amanda

Congrats Amanda!  Your prize is 2 stamps from LOTV - 'Times to Treasure' and 'Little Acorn' :o)  Could you email me with your address please hun.

Here's my card for this week, made for my friend Kathleen who has just become a (very young!) great-grandma.



I've used a pram embossing folder that I've had for a couple of years - I think it's been used once before and then forgotten about.  It was embossed on a piece of core'dinations whitewash card (again, had this for ages) and then sanded over the image to uncover the blue core.  The papers are scraps of Pink Petticoat papers, with Stampin' Up kraft card.  The sentiment was computer generated using chocolate box font, and the lattice border was cut with an x-cut punch that I don't think I've ever used - I had to wipe off all the dust before I could use it lol!

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:
To all those who read about or donated to the appeal for Thomas Cammack, that I posted about at the weekend... sadly Thomas lost his fight against Neuroblastoma in the early hours of this morning.  I couldn't stop crying when I heard the news, his family must be absolutely devastated.  He was just 4 years old and was the bravest little boy throughout all his treatment... so sad.

Please link up below if you'd like to join in with Waste Not Wednesdays - just for fun this week.

    And such sad news about little Thomas. Stories like this make me sooo sad and sooo grateful for Emily. Don't know that I'd cope if anything happened to her.
