Waste Not Wednesdays wk20

It's now week 20 (seriously?!) of my little Waste Not Wednesdays challenge, here to get you using all your neglected and unused stash.  Luckily my card also fits with this week's Less is More challenge, which is 'for a baby or child', but I've got a 'proper' entry to post for that tomorrow too :o)

I've used a Penny Black stamp from the 'Mimi in Paris' transparent set - I haven't used a single stamp from this set before... oh, apart from a sentiment, once!  I coloured Mimi with promarkers and flexmarkers, cut her out and added some glamour dust for sparkle, and a little pink gem I've had for ages on her flower.  She's popped up on foam pads and the sentiment is computer generated using Kristen ITC font.

I'm also entering my card for the following challenges:

It's been so warm today!  I don't do well in the heat, it tends to knock me out a bit, but I'm trying not to moan too much because it makes a nice change at the moment!  Those who've asked after hubby, thank you - the saga goes on I'm afraid!  He's now on treatment for his blood pressure because it stayed very high, and this morning he's been back to the docs because it looked like the pneumonia was recurring - the doc agreed and he's now back on the antibiotics... he's refusing to have anymore time off work though... grrr!

Have a lovely evening :o)

Morning Lisa - this is just sooooo cute! Love the image and your colouring is perfect.

So sorry to hear Pav still isn't recovered, I do hope things improve for him soon.


Marie said...

Thank you for this challenge and what a lovely card you have made. I love simple designs and like how your image sits on top of all that lovely fresh crisp white. The tiny gem in her hair and a bit of sparkle are just perfect. Nice to know what font you used for the sentiment too - I often see a font and want to know which one it is.
