Star of Light

Just one more day and you can order from the Holiday Catalog. It is full of wonderful new stamp sets and products. Here is a peek at one of the Christmas stamp sets called Star of Light.

Star of Light 2

The swirl of stars, the sentiment, and the image on the silver foil star are from this stamp set. There is a coordinating framelit to this set however I did not use it this time. I chose to die cut a silver foil star as my focal point. The swirl of stars, the sentiment and the image on the foil star are heat embossed with silver embossing powder. I added strands of the metallic silver thread to the back of the star using glue dots and then popped it up with a dimensional. There are also some small stars stamped on the card front with Night of Navy ink.

Here is the inside:

Star of Light 2 Inside



In March I bought one milkweed plant hoping to attrach butterflies. A friend bought three plants at the same time. She had numerous butterflies which laid their eggs, turned into chrysalis and she watched the new butterflies emerge. I had a few butterflies flying around my plant but never saw a caterpillar. I was very disappointed. Then a few days ago this happened:
CatepilersI was so excited when I saw them. There are 5 on the one tiny plant. It's amazing to watch them eat the leaves and even the stems. I worried that I would not have enough for 5 of them so I went out this morning and bought 3 more plants. I know a lot of kids experience this when they are young, in school I suppose, but it is the first time I have ever seen it. Watching a miracle happen right in my front yard. Makes me happy.
Thanks for stopping by and have an awesome day,
