Twinkle Twinkle Little Star!

Hello Friends! Guess what? I have a cold again!!! I've only just recovered from one and here it comes again :(. Colds are such a nuisance and a big waste of time, don't you think? Anyway...
How are you getting on with your Christmas preparations? I am finally getting into the festive spirit and my production of Christmas cards has now properly taken off. I will share my cards very soon but for now... Here's a very quick and simple project I made to kick start the Christmassy crafting season :).

Last year I bought some styrofoam stars and they have been waiting all this long to get decorated lol :). First I added a silver string for hanging onto the tree. Next I covered the starts with a generous layer of PVC glue and sprinkled them just as generously with Shaved Ice from Stampendous. Finally I just hang them to dry and done! See, clean and simple but how effective! Just right for our monthly CAS Christmas challenge at Stampendous :).

While I was working on this project I had another idea how to use Shaved Ice and I've got to say - I loooove it! But you'll need to wait to see it! :).

Have you entered the challenge yet? Click on Mr Kitty below and join in the fun!

Whilst talking about Christmas, the time of giving etc. etc... what would you say about a little candy to make this festive time even more exciting? And would you prefer the bundle to be shared between a few lucky winners or would you sing along with Abba that 'the winner takes it all'?
