When you wish upon a star...

Good afternoon, my lovelies! I hope you're all having a happy weekend.

I have a TOP TIP to give you: Don't craft in a cardigan with loose, floppy sleeves! The number of times I've swept things off my craft table and onto the floor this week is ridiculous! There's one coloured-in Tilda that seems to have escaped completely! I'm halfway through cleaning my craft hovel in the hopes I'll find her!

Amidst all the kerfuffle I did manage to finish one card without a mishap:

The Sketch is from Seems a Little Sketchy and I flipped it over. The papers are Nitwits (though I didn't make a note of the collection, sorry!). I used a Spellbinders Romantic Rectangles die on Tilda's blue mat, and the leafy Fanciful Flourish die is by Cheery Lynn, I added sequin flowers with tiny gems glued in the middle.

The sentiment is LotV, the flourish is stickled though the light hasn't caught it. I also stickled Tilda's Star wand and her cute crown. The star embellies came from the Pinflair shop in Hertford. The ribbon is from stash, and I glued it on a strip of white card because I haven't used any mats.

I used Speccies to colour Tilda - the image that I lost is the same Tilda but coloured in Promarkers as a comparison, I'll make her into a card once I find her! (Oh I am such a plonker!)

Now I'm going to make a cuppa and visit your blogs before I get back to the tidying. I hope everyone who is being snowed on is keeping safe and warm and dry!

A sweet card, Mags. Your sleeve story made me laugh. I once answered the door with a cottage image stuck to the underside of my bust, lol! I wondered why I was getting funny looks from the postie.
