Something Old...Something New...Day 7

Hi folks...I can't believe I've had a whole seven days just playing in the cubbyhole...no deadlines to nail...doing my own thing...nobody saying what doest thou...having lots of crafty fun and here are today's ingredients...

Hero Arts Alphabet Hexagons
Hero Arts Fancy Dies - Alphabet Uppercase
Hero Arts Frame Cuts - Geometric Shapes
more Alphabet Stickers
Memory Box - Tilth Floral bought at the NEC in November and never used
Simon Says Stamp - Hexagon Border...used just once...
a pile of black card which I hardly ever use for card-making and one of the many old paperbacks I keep for mixed media projects...
and the results...

and now that I'm well and truly into this less wasteful crafty lifestyle...I just couldn't bring myself to throw away the waste from this gorgeous flower...

My 2 favourite guys are coming to stay for a sleep over tonight and I have no doubt they'll be only too willing to have a rummage around in Grandma's stash...so who knows what we'll be sharing tomorrow.
