Star Bright

Hello and welcome . Hope that you have had a wonderful day .
Not long now , only 4 more sleeps till Michelle and Luke are here .
Today I have added a Christmas card to my numbers in Robyn's challenge to make 50 by the 1st December.
Here I have used embossing on Whisper White layer then cut aperture with Nestabilities, adding red gingham ribbon and bow  before adhering to Real Red card base. I used a Sizzix ' Corner Design' and my Big Shot to create a swirl for confetti stars , adding some glitter to it as well. I also cut a nestabilities centre piece in red dsp adding a punched white circle for the sentiment from set Short and Sweet, inked in Real Red.
I reckon I have had those Star confetti pieces for 8 or so YEARS ! I never throw any thing away.

Tomorrow I am taking the cue from a girl friend of mine , Kay, who did this a couple of days ago . My craft ladies and I will put all my scrap card a dsp pieces on the table with the Big Shot and all my punches . And for 2 1/2 hours we will punch , emboss and  diecut as much as we can to make up  many bags of card toppers . Some of these we will share and some  I will  give to Michelle and others will go to the Church trading table  on Tuesday.
                                                 Hope that you all have a quiet family Sunday tomorrow
                                              Catch you again soon , cheers Shirley-Anne
