seeing stars

Hi there lovelies - I hope you are well and happy and ready for the weekend? I've not got much planned this weekend - just a fundraising coffee morning later this morning at a friends - then its all free time! I wonder what we'll do!!!

I've got a card to share with you today that I mostly made at my daughter's Jujitsu class last night - although I have to confess the bits and pieces have been coming together for a few days now - I cut the stars at my mums yesterday afternoon - my own star dies are in santas sack!!!!


The image is from Crafty Sentiments Designs - she's called santas helper - isn't she just a gorgeous stamp? The papers are from a variety of sources and have been laid out to follow the sketch by Christmas Card challenges with sketches. The colour choices are to reflect two challenges (my mums craft shop - bold and bright) (ABC Christmas challenges - V for vibrant) The stars are to reflect two challenges - CSD and Totally papercrafts). The image was coloured with promarkers.

So the challenges I'd like to enter this card into are:

Christmas card Challenges with sketchechristmaschallenges 48:
mymumscraftshopchallenges: Bold and bright
Divasdivasbydesignchallenge: Feeling festive
TPS:thepapershelter Anything goes
abcchristmaschallenge: V is for vibrant
CSDcraftysentiments: seeing stars
totallypapercrafts: twinkle twinkle Christmas star
CC and CCchocolatecoffeecards: stripes
cardcrafterscircle: Patterned paper
craftyhazelnutschristmaschallenge: use at least three different patterned papers

Back tomorrow with a new challenge from the Crafty Pad - see you then! Thanks for visiting and for any comments you may leave!

Big Hugs
