Waste Not Wednesdays wk19

It's week 19 (eeeeek!) of my little Waste Not Wednesdays challenge, here to encourage you to dig out all that unused and neglected stash and get it used :o)  It's also my lovely Mum and her hubby Andrew's first wedding anniversary today, and this is the card I made for them...




I've had this cute LOTV stamp for AGES and the poor thing's never been inked until now - no idea why not!  I coloured it with promarkers and flexmarkers and added my little Viva pearl dots.  The papers aren't exactly old - they're from a Papermania pad I bought a few months ago, but I'd only used them once and then forgot about them.  All cardstock is from my scrap drawers (yes, I have 4 drawers... and a box... full of scraps!).  The sentiment is LOTV, gems are old ones from my stash, ribbon buckle from Wild Orchid Crafts.  The Whimsy corner dies and gorgeous vintage style ribbon are both available from The Stamp Basket.  I always have to decorate the insides to match when it's a card for my mum, she complains if I don't lol!

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:
I'm really sorry if I've not managed to visit your blog for the last couple of days - I'm visiting as many of you as I can, but the school have decided that the kids will be off on Friday... apparently they have to give an extra day because the Jubilee bank holiday falls when they'll be off anyway for spring bank.  They only told us at the start of this week though, and I've been trying to get everything done so that we can spend Friday in the park... after all this rushing, it'll probably rain all day lol!

Hope you all have a lovely evening :o)

I'm so behind with blog hopping too Lisa...a case of a rather full plate at the moment I think!!! Your little rabbits are so cute, I can't believe it's a year...I remember the photos on your blog last year :0)
That's a bit rich to spring an extra day holiday at short notice! Don't think our school is....makes you wonder if it's for the teachers benefit or the children's!!!

First Anniversary!!??!! You can't be serious, a whole year - it feels like yesterday you showed us their wedding card! Hope they have a lovely Anniversary, I'm sure your gorgeous card will go down a treat. I'll be back later for the challenge Donna ☺

Sarah said...

Hi Lisa, gorgeous card - love those bunnies! Another one here who can't believe it's a year ago that you were showing us the pics and who is terribly behind with commenting.

I'm planning on having some surf time tonight and will be back to catch up with your blog proper later.

Sarah

Sarah said...

Right here I am again! Been having a nosy back through your blog and reading all about Dex's antibiotic nightmare - hope he's all OK now? We had, for the first time, problems with Emily having her antibiotics last week. Why on earth they made it smell and taste of aniseed I do not know! Loads of chocolate bribery went on at our house.

As for school, I know just how you feel - that was me last year!!! Now I'm worrying how she will cope with Year 1 in Sept. She will be fine, I'll be a wreck!! They seem so little don't they when they start school - but I can see the changes in her, I wonder what it will be like in 10 years when they are moving onto the next step!
