Waste Not Wednesdays wk27

It's week 27 of my little Waste Not Wednesdays challenge, here to get you using up all those neglected and unused stamps and stash... As we go on holiday in a few days, I'm leaving the linky open for 2 weeks this time and I have a prize for one lucky random winner, to make up for the fact that I won't be around to leave comments for you all!

The prize is this very cute Christmas stamp set from The Greeting Farm :o)


And here's my card for today...



I needed a 40th birthday card for my Auntie - although as I've mentioned before, I don't actually call her auntie as she's only a few years older than me and we're friends more than anything else.  She prefers my clean & simple cards, so although this is fairly simple, I think it's probably a bit on the fussy side for her really... Wait until you see the anniversary card I've made for her though - I'll show that tomorrow and it's scarily CAS!

Anyway... I've used Papermania papers, a butterfly die (x-cut? not sure...) that I haven't used for ages, and pearls from my stash.  I cut the edge of the sentiment with my ancient scallop scissors and added a corner cut with a Whimsy die... and that's about it.

Running off to do some commenting again!  Have a lovely evening :o)
