Starry Christmas ....

.... Good Monday morning to you all - I hope you've had a super weekend.  We have just finished a lovely long weekend here in Michigan.  It started out with the warmest Thanksgiving for ages and ended with snow on the ground yesterday!!  Extremes!  I did get to play yesterday and this Christmas card was made using these challenges:




Stamps: Waltzingmouse - Yonder Star Background, Yonder Star, Say It Loud Winter Holiday
Inks: Memento - Teal Zeal; Stampin' Up! - Lucky Limeade
Dies: Spellbinders - Classic Edge (E8-001)
Accessories:  Design Paper - SEI Berry Melody; SU - Basic Grey, Tempting Turquoise; Gem and card from stash

I absolutely love these colours - they are so me!  I stamped the outline image and then fussy cut it out - actually it is quite easy, just a bit long!!!  I don't have the colours Bermuda Bay and Soft Sky, so I matched them as closely as possible - and I think they work.  I finished with this square gem which looks quite dark in the photo, but in real life is almost exactly the same colour as Lucky Limeade.

Kathryn is back to school today - only four weeks until the end of school!!  Can't believe how quickly time is passing this year.  That's all for now - see you soon.
