Little Star

Last month I embarked on a 'stash diet'...I had to make 30 cards before I could buy any stash (other than essentials like DST and card)...well I made my target in record time (just over two weeks...aided by my mass production invitations)...and bought a few Lili of the Valley Christmas stamps...they arrived last Monday...and I've been waiting all week to have time to play! :0)
I followed this week's Midnight Madness sketch...and used 'Christmas Ted - Little Star'...isn't he adorable?! The paper is by DCWV (from the 'Christmas' stack), and the star was cut using a Nestie die...I think I may have overdone it with the stickles! lol So considering the bling...I'm also going to enter this card for the Creative Card Crew's 'All that Sparkles' challenge.

I always get excited when I open someone's blog and find a card that they have made for MMSC. I am a bear collector and bears just delight me. You card is no exception. What an adorable bear. I don't think you over did it with the stickles. A girl can never have to much bling in my opinion!!! lol Thanks for playing along with us this week. We look forward to seeing more of your amazing creativity. Please be sure to mark your calendar for our Blog Hop coming Oct 16 filled with fun and prizes.
