Xmas Star


I'm scheduling this, as right now we are enjoying out last full day in the Isle Of Wight and Clio's first holiday in a cottage - let's hope we have had some nice weather.

Today's stamp is one of those that i feel is better stamped and embossed, then coloured in : Penny Black - 'Xmas Star / 2190K / 2001', the background paper (has been pre - embossed with silver stars) is : Deco Time - 'Cardboard Patterns', the plain silver card has been embossed with : Cuttlebug Embossing Folder - 'Stars', the sentiment is : Woodware - 'JGCL548', the circular star (around the image) is : Memory Box - 'Starry Wreath'

The Challenges I Would Like To Enter Are :

Winter Wonderland - where the Challenge is 'Show Us Your Gold / Silver and Embossed

Sparkles Christmas - where Challenge No: 67 is 'Shaped Cards'

My Time To Craft - where Challenge No; 327 is 'Embossing - Heat or Dry' - i've done both

August's Rudolph Days - where Mo does a Xmas Challenge starting the 25th of every month.

Creative Inspirations - where Challenge No: 256 is 'Christmas In August'

Thanks for looking and for any comments you would like to leave, It would be most appreciated, Luv Sam x
