Waste Not Wednesdays wk26

It's week 26 of my little Waste Not Wednesdays challenge, here to get you using all your neglected and unused stamps and stash :o)  Last week was prize week so we need a winner, and that is....

Number 17 - Little K Smith

Congratulations Kelly!  You won a £5 voucher to spend at DigiStamp Boutique - could you email me hun, so I can sort out your prize.

Here's my card for this week....



I've used one of the very cute LOTV printed images, so no colouring involved on this one... I tend to buy these and then feel bad about using them, so they just sit there - silly really!  The papers are very old, possibly Papermania, with bright pink cardstock from Papermill Direct.  Whimsy pennants die set and matching stamps from The Stamp Basket, butterflies cut with a Kars punch.  Ribbon, pearls and thread from my stash.

Sorry if I'm a bit slow visiting your blogs at the moment - we go away in a little over a week, and I'm trying to get everything done before we go.  We're off to Norfolk this year, haven't been before - anyone know if there are any craft shops there lol?  Good to have a little spend while you're on holiday isn't it ;o)

Hope you're all having a lovely evening!

Gorgeous little card hun - I had to laugh coz I'm just the same with the printed images! Yep, those are Papermania papers - the Colossal packs, they were brilliant value, shame they stopped them. Hope you have a super holiday hun - it might have stopped raining by then - which part of Norfolk? Hugs, Sxxx

Very cute Lisa, love the bunting. Where are you staying? I live in Norwich. Sadly Norfolk isn't great for craft shops. We have The Range and Hobbycrafts in Norwich. Also Jarrolds department store do crafts mainly Docrafts though. There is Sew Simple at Taverham, again lots of Do Crafts but some thers and lots of sewing stuff, Craftmania in Gt Yarmouth and Lowestoft, independent stores, lots of dies, not many stamps, lots of papers and decoupage.

Hi Lisa..

Lovely card.. Perfect use of that preprinted topper! I have some of those too... And a bit like you, they sit in my drawer!

There is a blogger called Lisa from Norfolk.. Maybe she could help you?

Fabulous card! Thanks for the fun challenge--I'm working on my hoarding! ;)

Craftdee said...

I know what you mean about feeling like you're "cheating" with pre-coloured images... it's funny but if you didn't use an image at all you wouldn't feel it was cheating, would you? I think it's smart... and it means you're setting a good example and using your stash :-) Donna

scrappymo! said...

I just finished a bunch of what I call "cheater" cards...cards that use store bought embellishment elements.

They are stash cards...I could make a card a day for years and not use up all that stash!

Thanks for the challenge to help us use up our stash.

Christine L said...

Me again... this is the other Lisa's blog addy.. the lady from Norfolk... who may be able to answer your question re craft shops there!
