Twinkly stars


Twinkle twinkle .......... The theme today at Less is More is, you've guessed it, *STARS*, so we're all going to be twinkling this week!
Just a very quick card  - I don't have a single day when I'm going to be in and able to play this week. Wedding and Christmas preparations are taking over. Started to sort out my (already made - how's that for being organised, eh?) Christmas cards and discovered I need at least another 2 dozen so this is a good excuse to do at least one.
A 5inch square linen effect base card and I made the sentiment and faux stitched border on the computer. The inchies are from a backing paper I've had for ages and I mounted them on gold. After I'd finished I thought it looked like a window with stars twinkling in the sky so that got me thinking that I might try this out in dark blue or even black to see the effect. And I just had to add my blingy star brad.
That's it for now, OH has started papering the bathroom (no it's still not finished!) and he needs tea made every hour on the hour!
Thank you to everyone who left me lovely birthday messages last week - I had a lovely weekend of craftiness and we went out for a delicious meal at the local hostelry on Saturday.
