How Old?!? WOYWW

Last time I joined in at WOYWW there were quite a few comments generated by my announcement that I was dramatically reducing my craft supplies.  Thank you, it was interesting to read them all and I will definitely return to the subject when I get nearer to my goal.  In the meantime, my turning out has unearthed this BasicGrey card making kit which must date back a good few years, perhaps 5?
With the use it or lose it ethos, and twin great-nephews 3rd birthday's coming up, I decide to make up what was left of the kit and - look away now - ditch any bits left over!
Here's a few of the finished cards now on the desk waiting to be filed in the cards ready to send box.
Before I sign-off to look at some desks, a quick thank you to Twiglet for this lovely collage she sent me in exchange for some of my crafting chuck outs.
Love the colours and the 3d detail.
Kate

Well done you for making such fab cards from your stash busters! The Roar card made me smile :-). That Twiglet does some gorgeous stuff, eh? Great idea to exchange crafty goodness :-)

Thanks for dropping in on me earlier and for your lovely comments. I've spent today looking after the twins and playing nursemaid to my daughter and I'm pleased to say she is moving a little easier today and making a steady recovery if but still rather sore.
Your cards are simply gorgeous.
Hugs,

I love that 'monster' card! I am also trying to use up some of my card kits - I really wish I had never bought some of them (and mine go back a long way as well). Seems so wrong to throw things away though! Beauiful gift you have received, really pretty. Thanks for sharing your projects, Happy WOYWW Cindy #41 x

Your cards are awesome! Does it matter that the materials are 5 yrs old? I'm also in the process of using up what I've got and I'm not allowed to buy anything.... but it's not working. I have bought stash twice since I started. I'm hopeless!
Sorry I'm a day late but I had to watch the great British Bake Off final yesterday! (and if you don't live in the UK, you'll have no idea what I mean)
Have a good week!

I am trying to do some stash busting too, as I've got a lot of stuff I bought when I first started, and then never used because I rapidly moved on to other things. I love the cards you have made! They are all so different.

Twiglet's collage is gorgeous.

Happy belated WOYWW,
