Star card and good news

I  thought I would publish a card I recently made after watching a Ustream tutorial  from Elsa from Just a Few Designs.  She is a talented lady.  I had slowed down posting because as some of you may know i recently lost my mother to a severe case of pneumonia. I am now bouncing back a little.  I find card making and paper crafting very therapeutic. 
Here is my supply list:  patterned paper from K&Co
Stickles glitter glue
Butterflies cut from Cricut Create a Critter cartridge
assorted flowers from my stash
stamp from $1 bin at Joann's
markers and craft glue.
The star card is real easy to make, I just need to find envelopes for them or make my

For my good news....... the on-line craft store, Consumer Crafts, contacted me and wanted to highlight me and a Halloween wreath I made with paper rosettes.  I was flattered and excited. Above is the wreath. If you want to see the post go to  www.craftsunleashed and check it out. 
My other good news for me is I had my first craft fair this weekend and me and my daughter in law did real good for our first one, soooooo we scheduled another one.
Happy crafting and Happy Halloween
