A Star is Born!!




Good Evening Everyone. Not such a beautiful day here in Ohio. I have very exciting news...my daughter's room is completely painted, a beautiful bright blue (her favorite color) all the furniture is back...woohoo...now the fun stuff begins. Today we have been working on sanding and redoing her dresser. Wow what a difference it makes to sand and repaint something. She wanted it all white instead of the decorations of a doll house. She is growing up so fast.




So I finally sat down a made a card between my makeover. I decided to do the sketch challenge over at SCS. SC238, a great sketch it was today. I went a little crazy today, I just found out my step sister is having a girl more exciting news.... so It totally got me thinking baby girl today. I used my silhouette cutter, cut chipboard stars, glittered them nice and pretty, then inked it up with craft turquoise ink. My card today looks simple..but wow it took a little bit playing around with chipboard. It was soooo fun to make and I really like how it turned out. I have never cut this paper from SU either it is called Petals and Paisleys wow is it perfect for little girls. Lots of fun fun polka dots.


I also wanted to share an award that sweet Lisa gave me today...What a sweetheart she is to think of me.

Isn't chipboard great and a pain at the same time? I love it, but I wish it was easier to work with. Your card turned out great! Hope you enjoy decorating the room with your daughter :)
