Follow the Star DT Card

Hello, and welcome!

Did ya miss me?  We had the most wonderful time in Northern Ireland, visiting with our son and his little family.....can't believe how much Bevan has grown in just these few weeks...he's 13 months old, and growin' like a weed...haaa!

My cutie pie........

Tanys, Bevan and Jonathan......we had just had lunch at the mall, and Bevan decided he wanted to investigate the Christmas tree....Mummy and Daddy had to rescue it...ha!
They actually live in Bangor, in a lovely little 3 bedroom semi, but Belfast is just 15 minutes away by car, and we visited the fantastic German Christmas Market....had hot fudge and chocolate, German sausage with the most wonderful sauce (can't pronounce the name, hehe), bought a wooden train for Bevan, got beautiful scarves for all my girls (daughters and daughters-in-law), and didn't mind a bit that the rain was teeming down!
Belfast is a beautiful city, and I can't wait to go back....highly recommend it, my friends!

Today, I'm showing off another lovely Christmas image from Stretch 'n' Bubbles......... it's called
Follow the Star.........and here's what I did with it.......

All coloured up with Promarkers, (what else, lol?), and I used Papermania DP, layered onto red cardstock......added a square doily for a snowy feel.......

Isn't it sweet?  I used a little sparkly Mod Podge on the star, and added white dots from a Sakura Glaze pen.....

The added embellishments are from my stash, all popped up on foam dots.......

Love that these glittery stars are big..........

The wavy green strip is chipboard, as are all the other embellishments, and I finished off with the sparkly sentiment.......done!
Hope you like.......tell me if you do/don't......haaaaa!
