Starry Thx

My first project of the day was to complete the Friday Mashup - and I combined it with the Create with Connie and Mary Sketch.

The MashUp this week is…
  1. Create a project with "Stars."
  2. Create a set of "Thank you Cards with Matching Envelopes"
  3. Or Mash it Up and create a set of "Thank you Cards & Envelopes using Stars."  

I used the little star from the Thinlits Circle Card - I wish we still had the star punches…..I used our retired one for the embellishment.  The top large star is a piece of card stock covered with the gold striped washi tape and then punched out in the star shape.

The small star from the Sale-a-brations Banner Blast set was used to add stars to the matching envelope.  I love matching envelopes - rarely ever have plain ones!

Hope you accomplish all your plans for the day.  Thanks for taking time to stop by!
