Oh My Stars!

This little cutie is for two different challenges for this week. My first is Gina K.'s Inspire 10 challenge, over at Stamp TV, that has to include stars. The three stars down the side of my image are from GKD,Lazy Days Of Summer, stamp set. I stamped them in Night of Navy SU!
ink, and then added yellow bands.

My second challenge is for Card Positioning Systems, and is a sketch challenge (#154-part1). It was such a fun sketch to work with!

My designer papers are all from Making Memories, Just Chillin' collection. I have shown the colors of Copic Markers that I used and I tried to give my little bear texture, so that he looked stuffed. I found navy star buttons that I laced with yellow ribbon. Touches of diamond Stickles were added for sparkle. The bear stamp is an unknown, and I did a bit of paper piecing to create the wall behind him.

I am ever so glad to be back to stamping today, as I did a real blooper and put my hand down on a hot stove burner, yesterday. Can you say major OUCH? Quick reaction kept blistering to a minimum. We just so happened to have prescription burn cream in the house from a burn my daughter received, and we slathered it on after many minutes in icy water. I can actually close my hand today and the skin looks like it will peel but not deeply. I was very lucky.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you enjoy what I made.

OUCH! Oh my Mary Anne. That sounds just terrible. I sure hope your hand heals quickly. Burns always hurt so much. You have so many cute stamps. This is an adorable card.
