Star of Wonder......
Good Morning Ladies,
Well yesterday certainly did not go as planned, I went to bed feeling really achy but put that down to tidying my craft room. Paul is on nights this week so I don't sleep too good anyway, but by 3am I was shivering so got up made a hot drink and and a hot water bottle. I tossed and turned until Milo woke me at 5am whining because Paul wasn't in bed, (he sleeps on Paul's feet). I didn't realise how rough I felt until Sophie asked me to get up French Braid her hair at 6am, I tried but just couldn't stand to do it or stop sneezing! So needless to say I didn't get to spend the day with Sue and Pat, I went back to bed, dosed up with Night Nurse and another hot water bottle (and Paul) and slept until 11am.
I feel so frustrated because I don't usually get 'ill' as such, yes i get Water infections from time to time but not since taking Cranberry Tablets, but I have had one sore throat after another for about a month, felt achy like I was getting Tonsillitis but it never came to anything, just keeps reoccurring!
I managed to drag myself into my newly tidied craft room to create the card above,, I have had the " Star Of Wonder" stamp and Die set for a couple of weeks now but not got around to playing with it, so it was the first thing I went for yesterday.
I decided to go for a Burgundy and Gold theme, so I matted and layered some cream, Burgundy and Gold Glitter card to form my card base, I then die cut the large star and used the embossed lines on the die cut and lined them up on my score board and embossed them again to give the star dimension. I then die cut one of the fancy centres in gold glitter card and adhered it to the star, I set that to one side and went back to my background, I took the 'starburst flourish' stamp from the set to make a flourish either side of my star, then added thee "Star of Wonder, Star of light" and then "Guide us to thy perfect light" stamped sentiments to the top and bottom corners. (I would not have attempted this without my Stamping tool) because I would have mucked it up!
I then added foam tape to the back of my Star and positioned it in the centre of the card.
I hope you like it.
This is my third stamp and die set from Stamping Up and I love them, they stamp so well and die cut perfectly, I am so tempted to take on being a Demonstrator for them, mainly as in want pretty much most of the catalogue, but its a huge commitment and I talk myself out of it every time I think I have decided. !!!
I hope that you all have a lovely day, I went to bed with a dose of night nurse, so who knows what today will bring, pesky germs, I have to say though, there has been quite a few of us suffering this Autumn, I think we need a good hard winter, to kill off these germs!
Love and hugs to all,
