You Are a Star!

(Drawing ends on July 3o th)

Good morning and happy Tuesday to you! Summer is quickly passing by and already my mind is on school things. Kyle is starting at a private high school in a few weeks and I've been trying to get books ordered, fees paid, clothes purchased. I am also headed to my school this week to start some class preparations. So I am trying to slow down each day to enjoy my time off, and enjoy being with my lil' family.

I have a shaped card to share with you today using my Gypsy and the George and Basic Shapes cartridge. The star was cut at 5." I also used Flower Shop to cut the flowers and leaves. I used some dimensional stamens from some silk flowers I had in my stash to place in the middle of my flower. I was kind of going for a "shooting" star look.....hence, the reason for the tulle! Not sure if I succeeded or not! ; ) The tag was cut using the Sentimental's cartridge and the sentiment was from Papertrey Ink. I added some silver Martha Stewart glitter and a bit of Pink Paislee twine to finish it off.

Off to tutor this morning, get Kyle to and from school, and head over to my school for a bit of work. : )

Have a GREAT day!!!!

Such a fun and cheery card. Summer is dwindling away fast....life will resume way before I'm ready.
