Got Stars?

I can't believe it is already Thursday. Normally, I don't post everyday but since I'm on the final countdown of my Christmas in July theme, this week is an exception. I had to sneak this one during naptime as I had my grandbaby Clara here yesterday. She is closing in on her second birthday and truly is the joy of my life. No matter if I'm depressed or worried, she is like a ray of sunshine. My heart actually aches with how much I love her.

Today's Christmas in July card is for this week's 2 Sketches for You challenge. I stamped the Sugar Nellie Catch a Falling Star image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto Bazzill Simply Smooth Cardstock.  I colored the image with Copic markers and then cut her out so the star would freely dangle. The star image was actually plain so I added some circles to match the stars in the patterned paper.  The patterned paper is Carolee's Adornit - not sure how old it is but I do know I've had it for a while.

Products: Sugar Nellie stamp, PTI cs and button, Basic Grey bling, Doodlebug trim and stickers, Ki Memories brads, Spellbinders Nestabilities, Copic markers

Copics: Skin-E0000, E00, E02, R20; Hair and boots-N1, N5, N7, N9; Clothing-R22, R27, R29, YG13, YG25
