MAWTT - 'Seeing Stars'

Good Morning....  

hope you are all well this Thursday morning... I would just like to thank you for the lovely comments and entries for my 'Spotlight' Challenge last week... there were not too many entries but those we had were all wonderful !!! don't forget to check if you were a winner on our main blog over at

and this week we have a fab theme chosen by our lovely Leesa.... and I think this will be more popular... it's
'Seeing Stars'

So we want to see all your creations using a Star/s somewhere on your project... it doesn't have to be a card... as long as you follow the theme!! lots of scope here... you could use a star embellishment or have an image with a star/s.... don't forget you can enter up to three times but no backlinking....

We are sponsored this week by the fab Stamp Fairy

who are kindly giving this week's winner a $10.00 Certificate to spend in-store!!

they also gave us some really cute images to play with and I have used a 'Barry Countdown to Christmas' one and he is SO cute!!! 

Little Barry is getting all tangled up in the Christmas Lights bless him.... The scrummy papers are Basic Grey 'Nordic Holiday'... I've embossed a strip of card with a Snowflake Border (freebie with a mag) and I've brushed it with Distress Ink to show up the pattern .... the bow is with Papermania Ribbon and the little charm is from stash. I've added some red Star gems and a green pearl star from stash... So lots of Stars on my card..... oh the sentiment is a Peel Off added to a tag...  it hasn't photographed very well because of the gold on it...

Now I don't what happened when I was designing this card in my head... but upon completion all I can see is  the ITALIAN FLAG!!!!! ROFL - ok it's not the right way round and the middle is a bit greeny... but you can see it can't you? ... but anyway... I still love it cos Barry Bear is SO darn cute!!!!

I've coloured the image with Promarkers and Copics.

If you hop on over to MAWTT  there are more details of the Challenge and you can see my Teamies gorgeous creations... we really hope you can join us this week!

Edit.... if you would like to join MAWTT as a Guest Designer for the first 2 weeks in December... just add GDT after your name when you enter your card and you could be chosen... !!
