Waste Not Wednesdays wk13

Week 13?!  How did that happen then?  Hmm... apparently it's now week 13 of my little Waste Not Wednesdays challenge - where you can use anything forgotten or neglected, anything at all.  Usually it's just for fun, but I think we'll have one of my little mystery prizes this week :o)




I've used some old K&Co papers - I think I've had these for 2 or 3 years and there were only a couple of sheets used!   The sentiment and controller stamp (stamped on the paper) are from a Paper Pretties set that I won at least a year ago, and the dew drops are old too - I bought them, used them on everything for a couple of weeks and then forgot about them.  The image (video boy from Mo Manning) is new (to me), coloured with promarkers, flexmarkers and prisma pencils, and I've inked everything with 'gathered twigs' distress ink.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:

Thanks for all your get well wishes for Dex - he's still coping really well with his spots, except for getting really bored of being kept away from other people.  He was so excited today when I said we could still go round to Di's house on Friday - her little girl's already had chicken pox so we're safe there.

Hope to see lots of you joining in this week, there were so many lovely entries last week - thank you!  Have a lovely evening :o)

Hi Lisa, your card is gorgeous and l can think of quite a few people who this image would suit perfectly. Hope your little chappie is soon better and the heat is not upsetting him too much. After weeks of thinking need to join in - l have, bought pack of reduced sparkly brads a couple of years ago and never opened until today x Susan x

Love the teen image and the papers you teamed it with. I really love to sit and stare at your amazing colouring....it's perfection :0)
Things have changed then ...once upon a time they had special parties so children could get the chicken pox and get it over and done with....suppose it was a bit bizarre!

Hi Lisa,

Wow fab card! Love the colours and your colouring is just wonderful. Great layout as well.

Sorry I missed last weeks WnW - still in a creative slump I'm afraid! So might not make this weeks either.

Glad to hear Dex is getting better.

I've seen this image around and it's really neat. Love the colour scheme you've gone with. I haven't used my dewdrops in a while either. Hopefully I'll get a card done this week if the house resumes some normality and I will come over and take part.

Poor Dex having to be kept away, at least he can have some playtime soon! As horrible as it is at the time, it's so much better to get them and be done with it! xx
