WOYWW 213 - What IS That...?!?!


Welcome to WOYWW! So what is this mess on my work trays you ask???  Well, I won some candy and in it was lots of lovely strips of glitter paper - my first thought was - what the hell am I going to do with those? Then I stopped, thought about it and .....


Voila!!!  I came up with the idea of putting them on a piece of waste cardstock from some packaging I had (Recycling Queen does it again!). At first I interwove them but I didn't have enough of the colours to do a whole piece of cardstock, so I just decided on the stripes instead.  You will see this soon as a backing on a card I've got plans for!


Lastly, here is the card I made which you saw on my WOYWW previously.  Julia - you are right - it was a bone.  I added the little bones all over the card - you can just see them in the photo (sorry light wasn't too good).  I just love this stamp set, so many good uses for different cards.

Gill, you might recognise the bone from one the lovely packages you sent me.  I always use every last bit if I can!  Recycle Queen again!

Have a great WOYWW everyone and I'll be putting on my best Visitors Hat soon!

Enjoy!

Just love your card! What a wonderful stamp! Those glitter strips look good too...I love the stuff! My friend has been diagnosed with cancer, starts chemo tomorrow. She's in England and I'm in France...such a long way away :O( So cards are the order of the day and I'm gonna make another one for her tonight! Happy WOYWW and keep up the good work!

You really are the recycle Queen Karen! Love the strips you created and your 'bone' card is brilliant. Not joining in today as we are away at the moment but just called by to say hello. Hugs, Anne x

Great post, Karen, such ingenuity too. I'm not sure I would have known what to do the strips either but creating a background is a fab idea. You can definitely claim the title of Queen of Recycling :) Love the card too - the sentiment would cheer anyone up. Hope you've had a good WOYWW, Elizabeth x #72

I use strips of paper and card for paper weaving and put it behind an aperture. I love your card and the stamps you've used are gorgeous! Happy (late) WOYWW. Pam#28

I love that cure doggy! I'm an avid user-upper too. I think it makes our projects individual!
