Waste Not Wednesdays wk4

I'm going to keep this as brief as possible because I'm sooo late today!  It's lovely having hubby at home for the week, but it means we're out most of the day and I'm running behind with everything!

As you might already know, my mission for this year is to get my un-inked stamps and unused digis coloured up and made into cards, and I decided to make a little challenge of it.  Anyone can join in, and usually it will be just for fun, but last week I thought it'd be nice to offer a little prize... so I have a winner to announce today, and that is....

Entry number 2 - Jo

Congrats Jo!  And huge thanks to everyone who's been joining in, I love seeing all your creations :o)  Here's what you've won Jo - sorry I forgot to add the prize photo to last week's entry!


A Greeting Farm stamp and a bag stuffed full of different embellishments... I might even add some more before I send it out :o)  Jo, could you email me your address and I'll get your goodies out to you hun!

And here's my card using this week's neglected stamp...




I bought this cute stamp when it first came out, and as usual for me it's been sat there waiting to be used.  I've coloured it with Prisma pencils and paper pieced the blanket.  The papers are MME with Stampin' Up kraft card, sentiment is also Stampin' Up and the buttons and twine are from my stash.

Apologies for the rushed post... I think we're off out again tomorrow, oh dear!  Back to 'just for fun' again this week, so no prizes, but I'd still love to see anything you'd like to link up using all your dusty images :o)
