You're a STAR

Just a really quick post cos should have been in bed about an hour ago but know not going to get chance to post tomorrow. Had a good last bit of the weekend, went to Chester on Saturday (yay still on places I can spell lol) and then out for tea and bowling, then on Sunday we went to the Matthew Street Festival here in Liverpool, this is the first time I've actually been (how bad is that when I live here) but it was a really good day seeing all the different stages and acts, will definitely have to go again. Yesterday was a bit of a lazy day, which I think was needed after all the days of running round here there and everywhere, lazy morning and then went up to visit a couple of friends and ended up staying for a BBQ mmmmmmmm.

Anyways managed to get 2 cards done tonight, had wanted to get more done but my head has been feeling achy so didn't quite manage it lol. So anyway this is the first of tonight's cards. I LOVE this one but maybe I'm biased lol. A friend in work wanted a congratulations card making for her Granddaughter who's just passed her GCSEs, I really struggled to think what I could do with this as most of my celebratory stamps are romance themed, then I remembered my Lili of the Valley Stamp, it's actually a Christmas Stamp - he should be wearing a Christmas hat but I managed to stamp him without it and then filled in the gap. I think it works quite well and was a bit of quick problem solving there. I glittered the heart up after colouring too, not a proper card without glitter on it somewhere lol.

I would like to enter this card in this week's Papertake Weekly Challenge - Just the One, I have used one piece of patterned paper and one colour-scheme too!!!

Unfortunately they aren't brilliant photos as they don't show all the shading on the bear and the star - but it looks good in 'real-life' lol.

Supplies: 'Christmas Ted - Big Star' Stamp by Lili of the Valley, 'Love Spell' Papers by Doodlebug, Sugar-Coating by Doodlebug
Extras: White Card, Pink Ink Pad, Sparkley Ribbon

Right really am off to bed now, just realised this will be my last post in August, back on 2nd Sept with some more cards... XOX
