Waste Not Wednesdays wk22

Before I get on with my post - I'm really, really sorry that I've been a bit rubbish over the last few days... so many of you have left me lovely comments and I've felt so ill I've not managed to visit many of you in return.  I promise to catch up eventually!  I think I've got a chest infection, but the docs can't fit me in until Friday so I'll have to put up with it until then...

Anyway... it's week 22 of my little Waste Not Wednesdays challenge, and as it's the first Wednesday of the month that means it's prize week :o)  So there will be a £5 voucher provided by the fabulous Sally-Ann at DigiStamp Boutique for one random lucky winner!



I'm sooo not happy with my card today!  The colouring didn't really work and the whole thing ended up a bit boring, but never mind...

I've used the very cute Louie and Cupcake, fairly sure I haven't used this one before.  I coloured him with promarkers and flexmarkers - I was going for a 'furry' look but it needs a bit of practice!  The spotty paper is from my scraps, the pink piece is core'dinations, embossed using a folder I've probably only used once or twice before, and then sanded back.  Sentiment is LOTV, corner was cut with a Whimsy die, and the pearls, buttons and velvet ribbon are from my stash.

I followed the sketch at Sketch Saturday so I'm entering my card there.

Right, off to do some very slow commenting!  Hope you all enjoy what's left of the evening :o)

Goodness me, don't worry about blogging and commenting when you're not feeling well. Put yourself first! If that card is boring, there's no hope for the rest of us! He looks lovely and furry to me!

Your card is gorgeous Lisa, and i love the effect of your colouring, been trying to get one of those pearl pens from our local craft shop, but they never seem to have the right colour, think i will have to go and order one online. Janette x
