A Whole Lot of Merry

wholelotofmerrymaureenplut

Hi friends!  Well, the week is whipping right along.  My month is full of work, field trips, a wedding, homework and classes.  Though October is a long month, I think it’s going to fly by!  Today’s card is for the new Festive Friday Challenge. This time we are asked to a star element.

Star Element Oct 9

I’ve used a gorgeous chipboard star underneath the button on the felt poinsettia…a little unexpected and a whole lot of adorable!  Notice those kraft leaves with the cool writing?  Yep, those were cut from last year’s Starbucks Christmas sleeves!  Can’t wait for the new ones this year!  Thanks for stopping by and have a fantastic day!

I have felt snowflakes die cut waiting for me to use. I love when you use felt on your cards and this is my reminder to use them. A wonderful combination of subtle patterns.

Oooh, the felt poinsettias are out :) Love the card. Used a SB sleeve just yesterday on a card. They are the best! Hang in there with your busy month and fingers crossed the pumpkin patch trip is a sunny one!

Love the layers of the poinsettia, and the subtle pattern on the bg.
