When You Wish Upon A Star

Happy Saturday peeps, hope all is well out in blogland today.  Had a frantic week back at work after my holiday - I swear if they don't recruit someone else soon I may implode!  I cannot tell you how pleased I was to see Friday night arrive.

And there is nothing like a bit of crafting for some rest and relaxtion is there?  Has to be the best tonic in the world.

Today over at PENNY BLACK SATURDAY CHALLENGE the theme is Starburst and, unusually for me, I knew immediately where I was going with this one


It's only a little card (6x4) but I think it makes quite a statement!  Have used PBs Catch A Star stamp (one of my earliest PBs) and the PB Make A Wish sentiment.  Papers and blue card are from Little Sizzlets Country pad and the yellow stars are from scrap box.  Martha Stewart border punch to finish.

Feeling a bit blue just now - I think it is the realisation that we are almost at the end of July and Christmas cards are looming.  Oh well, best I buckle down and get on with them hey?! 

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
Hugs Sxx

Squirrel said...

So pretty, and adorably cute! Your colouring is amazing as ever.

Tomorrow is due to be wet and miserable so I'll probably be doing Christmas cards as well. I've got used to hot Christmasses, but winter without the fun of Christmas to look forward to is something novel for me.

Upside-down seasons indeed!
love from a summer Squirrel in the winter XX
