Paperplay - Stars!


Happy Thanksgiving to everyone celebrating and "giving thanks today".  A big "hello" and "miss you" to all our friends in Chicago.

This week's challenge on Paperplay is set by moi!.  The theme is "Stars" - we want to see stars on your project/cards.  So it doesn't have to be a holiday card but has to have stars on it somewhere!!.

I used the wonderful Seasons of Love star stamp by Waltzingmouse stamps which are nestie friendly - don't you just love that?  Despite that fact I actually cut this one by hand and used red scraps off my table to create this card.  I ran the kraft card blank through my sewing machine without any thread in it to get the delicate holes around the edge.

Thanks so much for peeking and I hope you get a chance to play along with Paperplay this week.  This week we are very kindly sponsored by Phindy's Place.  Full challenge details are available here.

Stunning as always - I just love this one! Thanks for the tip about the sewing machine...would love to try that. Unfortunately I cant fit my machine in my craft room so it has its own room up the other end of the house - consequently I dont use it much!
