N is not a card

ABC challenges this week is N for not a card so here it is my project. I picked up this large plain brown star at a craft show last fall and I have been wanting to do something with it for awhile. so I put my family's pics and patterned paper to go with the colours of our living room, cut the paper and pics to fit on the star and I am so happy with how it turned out "grin". I guess when you have patterned paper and great pictures you can do anything :). The family star fits perfectly on the mantel above the fireplace.

Star bookmark

This is my first challenge at project Tuesday at I thought it was a fun challenge to make a bookmark. I made mine using a chipboard star and I cut out a star with patterned paper and stuck a star brad in the middle and stickled around the edges. Quick and easy
