One hubby free to good home...

Oh what a day.... Morgan (my 8yr old) has a nasty chesty cough, Dex (nearly 3) has been grumpy and tearful all day so I think he's probably getting it too, and hubby is still suffering with his back.  I have very little sympathy for him today though, because while I was trying to do some commenting earlier, I heard a loud crash from the kitchen... I can see into the kitchen doorway from my chair and as I sat there, I could see an enormous lake of milk spreading across the room!  Hubby had dropped a 2 litre container of milk on the floor, which exploded and sprayed milk everywhere... and it's the second time he's done this!  You'd think the nightmare clean-up last time would have made him a bit more careful, but apparently not.  He's so accident prone!


Anyway, here's a couple of quick cards using a Sizzix primitive star die that I've had my eye on for ages, and finally let myself buy a few weeks ago.  I love stars and I think these are a great shape.  I've used a couple of scraps of sparkly MME paper, teal Papermill card, Stampin Up Kraft card and some metallic DCWV cardstock I bought a few months ago and then never used.  Did some embossing with a couple of Cuttlebug embossing folders and added some buttons from my stash.

I'm entering my cards for the following challenges:
Right, I'm going to have another go at catching up with some commenting now, hopefully hubby can stay out of trouble while I do it!
