Seeing Stars!

Hello, Welcome to coffee towers, back up and running after a small blip in the health dept. Some nasty, nasty antibiotics later, all's well and I hope it is with you too :0) Here is my card for LIM 39. This week Chrissy and Mandi would like to see *Stars* on our creations,


It's good to feel better, I haven't felt like creating at all, lovely to be back! I've got so much to catch up on now, could be a tad busy for a while, big smiles :0)









I've used Stamp by Impression Obsession, Cover a card stamp, Ornate Floral and I've used dies, Mr Holtz sunrays embossing folder and his New 'Noel' die. The star die is from Sizzix and called Stars Primitive.

Oh Gay, I'm so sorry you've been poorly again. Hope those nasty anti-Bs have done the job and that you are restored to rude health! Your card is wonderful as always - the star looks amazing popped up on that beautiful embossed background and the cut out Noel is fab too. Vx

It's not the antibiotics which were nasty, they helped you out. It's more the reason why you took them which is to blame LOL.
Anyway, I'm glad you are feeling better, and I LOOOOOVE your card
