Waste Not Wednesdays wk28

I'm back again - it's a bit busy around my blog this week lol!  If you came for the Sugar Nellie Sneak Week, you just need to scroll down a bit to the post below.

It's Wednesday, so that means it's time for my little Waste Not Wednesdays challenge again - here to get you using up your neglected and un-used stamps and stash.  And you might remember there was a prize for the last challenge, so we need a winner, and the lucky one is....

No. 39 - Louise

Congrats hun :o)  Please email me with your address and I'll get your new stamps in the post!

Now, as it's the first Wednesday of the month, that means there's a £5 gift voucher up for grabs from the fabulous DigiStamp Boutique.  I've also decided, as it's the looooong school holidays and things are a bit manic around here (and it's probably the same for a lot of you), that I'll leave the challenge open for a full month this time.  I'll add a little prize myself too - a surprise one (as I haven't decided what it'll be yet!), so the challenge will run until the beginning of September, but there'll be two winners to make up for it.




I've used a previously un-inked and very cute little bear from LOTV... She's called Born to Shop, and I've coloured her with promarkers and flexmarkers.  While I was on holiday a lady called Karen left a comment asking what colours I use for bears, but I can't find a way to reply to her, so I'll add it here - Cocoa, Raw Sienna, Mustard, Pastel Yellow and Vanilla... hope that helps if you're reading again!

The papers are from a K&Co pad that I'd forgotten about.  I also used Whimsy corners, vintage style ribbon, added a card candy centre for the bow, green pearls from my stash and some punched hearts, oh and the little scalloped border die is MFT dienamics.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:

Sooo... don't forget - the linky will be open for a whole month, and there'll be two random winners... hopefully I'll then get back to weekly challenges!  Just dust something off and get it used, and then link up below.

Hope you all have a lovely evening, I'm off to try and catch up with some of you now :o)
