Sue's star shaped card


Good Monday Morning Ladies, 

We had a long driving day yesterday, about 7 hours with toilet stops and our long lunch stop, boy was it hot, it didn't dip below 34 the whole day, which was quite a shock when you open the door of the car after having the air conditioning on!  I feel like we will pay the price for the continuous Air conditioning in car and hotel but in this heat there is no choice, its unbearable without it.  

Today we have the last part of our journey from Orleans to Calais, we are hoping Paris won't be too chaotic, that can make such a difference to the journey. We also have the M20, M25 & M4 to navigate too, on the plus side Lucy is cooking us a delicious dinner for when we get home, Salmon with sone lovely vegetables 😋, such a treat after a couple days of plain restaurant food.  

Today's card :

Sue's Description:

I used a variety of different star dies to make this card. The white base card star was cut using the third largest die from Creative Craft Products Nestables Stars die set which I covered with a pale purple paper from my stash. I then cut the 6th largest die using the white card again. 4 different sized stars from my unnamed die stash cut in white and a slightly darker purple paper randomly placed. And to finish with a little bow topped with 2 small stars and a little sentiment. I hope you like this card. Love Sue xx

Absolutely love your star card Sue, love the combination of all different size stars,  love that pretty bow and tag as finishing touch too.

Thank you for another inspiring card my lovely XXX 

I hope you all have a great start to the week, 

Love and hugs to all of you,

Sandra                                                                    xxxxxx

    No crafting for me over the weekend My craft room/office is like a sweat box I’m practically working in the dark at the moment with the curtains drawn

  2. Hi everyone
    Beautiful card Sue. Like the starshape.
    Not sure if I have time to make CC this week but will try. We are going away down to Bournemouth for three nights from tomorrow for a little break.
    My dad going to have his pacemaker changed so that might been the problem, who knows.
    Lilian, have your family gone home now ? Is it getting a bit quieter down Cornwall
