Wishing on a Star!

                                        






Doesn't this make a change -   It's only Tuesday and my card is ready for LIM!!
The challenge this week is 'Stars' and I have used  Lavinia fairy and stars stamps that I am ashamed to say I bought at Harrogate in September and this is the first time they have seen ink!!  The sentiment is from an Inkylicious set.  All stamped in Black Memento with just a dash of Glamour Dust.

I am also entering this card in the following challenges:
  Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes
  Bows & Berries  - CAS
  Make It Monday - Always Anything Goes
  Dream Valley Challenge - Anything Goes

I had problems with my internet connection again last week, and its surprising how much time you make for crafting when there are no other diversions - I only have 3 more Christmas cards to make!!!  I have been in 'factory mode' at least 6 of each design, but they are done, in envelopes and the address labels on - just need stamps (big sigh), so it must be true - every grey cloud has a silver lining!

Thanks for looking, and I hope to catch up and visit soon.
