I've not posted a card for a while but nonetheless have been busy crafting, a Pom Pom wreath for Christmas in creams, latte and few tiny red pom-poms...this led me onto making a pompom garland in pink grey and white for a friends new granddaughter and of course Christmas cards..I'm made 30 to date...amongst other projects I'm determined to finish such as binding my daughters king size quilt and my grandaughters double size quilt....a bit daunting and I keep putting it off!

My card this time is for the Less is more challenge DREAMS one layer and also ties in nicely with the AAA card challenge - photo inspiration  I decided to use bright colours as the card is for a niece who is starting out at university...and the sentiment 'Wish upon a star and follow your dreams'  is a mixture of creative license on my PC together with an old Pink Petticoat sentiment (unfortunately PP has closed, but I'm sure a lot of people still remember them)...

The stars are actually snow crystals, I only found these lovely stamps recently  At stamps by Chloe and thought they were so pretty and will be a classic for years to come. Enjoy


  1. How pretty! I love those 'stars' and their vibrant colours, and what a good idea to combine a computer sentiment with a stamped one. Good luck to your niece at uni. Thanks for playing along with us at Less is More :)

  2. I love this CAS design, great placement and adore the colours. Thanks for joining AAA

  3. Live the layout and color choice

  5. Superb placement of those 'stars' in your design Susan, and the vibrant colours are complemented by the sparkly sequins. Such a wonderful sentiment. I love that it is part stamp and part digital. Thank you so much for sharing this with us at Less is More. xx

  6. Well, it sounds like your crafting is certainly keeping you busy ;-)
    Glad you had time to make a card. LOVE the bright colours.
    And Yes, I remember Pink Petticoat. I loved their digital papers.

  7. Granny duties have put me hopelessly behind this week!

    This is just lovely!
