Waste not Wednesday on Thursday! - week 6

Good morning everyone, hope you're all well & warm, and a big thank you and welcome to my new followers - hope you find something here to inspire you!
Another chilly day here with more snow forecast in the next couple days and it's sooo cold - 
 I think the warmest room in the house yesterday was my craft room (honest!).
So, today's card is the last of the Valentine's cards i need to make and i've
 gone for my fav scallop circle easel card with some gorgeous bunting, red card, spotty paper, a hand rolled flower, some punched hearts, spotty ribbon, a few pearls and a fab digi image from Pollycraft (sorry don't know what its called) coloured with flexmarkers.  Everything used is from my stash and i'm going to link up over at Lisa's (Wishcraft) Waste not Wednesday - a fab challenge to use up all those un-inked stamps and un-printed digis! It's amazing - and slightly scary - to see just how much unused stash you actually have!
Go have a look - then come join us - it's fab!
Hope you all have a lovely day and thanks for looking!

  15. Lovely card there Jo. I must have a go at these easel cards.
    As for chickens - get some. They are wonderful and therapeutic to watch though I would say do not get a cockeral as you have young children. Check your covenants on your deeds/lease though as there may be restrictions! I love ours. Since having the white chooks we took on three ex-battery hens and they are beautiful and have come on in leaps and bounds since we had them, and so mcuh more sociable than the white ones. Maybe give them a try! Good luck!

  16. Cute easel card Jo. Thanks for playing at Come and Get It.

  22. Awesome job, thanks for playing our challenge at 4 Crafty Chicks!

  23. Oh my goodness...that is so cute!

    I love how you did the challenges. i want to try that this year. How do you keep track of them all? Do you print them out in Excel and then have a nosy to see what they are asking for?

    I have lingering problems from a couple of concussions. One right after another:(
    so keeping up on the challenges would be good training for my mind. I seem normal on a day to day "friend" basis...but struggle to multitask and have recall problems when I get busy (asking my brain).
    So keeping track (multitasking) of the challenges would be like brain homework:)


  24. Hi again...just saw your question re the stamp name on my It's a guy thing cards.
    Yes, it is a stamp...I don't know the name but it is a Stampin Up stamp.
