It's week 21 of my little Waste Not Wednesdays challenge, here to get you using all that neglected and unused stash... we've all got lots of that, haven't we? I've made 2 cards, which also fit this week's challenge at Less is More which is 'not a square' - Chrissie and Mandi would like to see shaped cards.
These flowers are one of the oldest things in my stash - from a pack of die cut flowers that I bought before I owned a die cutter. There's a die by Stampin' Up that looks exactly the same though, so maybe I'll treat myself to that now I've actually used these ;o) The gem brad (which is the same colour as the little gems, although it looks darker in the photo) was also an early purchase, I've probably had them for 3 or 4 years. The sentiment is Stampin' Up, butterflies cut with Kars punches and gems from my stash. The shaped card was cut with the new framelits dies from Stampin' Up, and this time I've got it to stand up by cutting a little straight edge at the bottom of the back piece - see pic below... thanks for the suggestion Catherine!
And then I made a similar card using black flowers from the same pack, a red gem brad and pearls. The cardstock for both cards is white hammered card from Papermill Direct. I'm not overly thrilled with these cards, they're not quite working for me - not sure why though!
Do you remember my moaning last year when I let myself be pressured into having Dex's surfer dude blond hair cut shorter? We let it grow again, but recently he's been asking for it to be cut short, so I took him today and he asked for it 'as short as Morgan's'... well Morgan's is very short... she got the clippers out and I nearly cried lol! It's going to take some getting used to - he looks very grown up all of a sudden, but he's thrilled with it so that's the most important thing I suppose. I'll add a photo tomorrow if he'll let me take one.
Hope you all have a lovely evening :o)
It's nearly time!!!
