Hello there! It has been a long time!

I was on a very long "maternity leave" sort of speak...
My twins are now 17 months old and getting more and more independent everyday!
Then why haven't I been crafting? Well, I had a baby girl in September...ha ha
She was a total surprise, especially my husband and I never thought I could get pregnant naturally! The twins and the baby girl are 12 months apart so we call them "Irish triplets". I don't know which was harder, pregnant with the twins, or pregnant while taking care of them...  

Anyway, I have made a few cards when I needed them. 
It just takes me days to finish one!
I really liked this one and wanted to share with you when I found the time.
So here it is!

This card is from October, made for my mother-in-law's birthday.
I wanted to use the Lucky Stars Embossing Folder, then I had the stencil that I wanted to try out. So without trying, this card had become very starry! 
The color scheme was another thing, I picked my most favorite color, Pool Party, because it just looks fabulous against pearly, bright Whisper White, then very odd thing, I picked Tangerine Tango, which I rarely use! but I'm glad I did, because it looks so fun with Pool Party!

More stars and a banner complete this card! 
I wanted the banner to be random and eclectic, but I am not good with random and ended up with a patterned I think random is harder!!

My notes...

Stamp set: Perfect Pennants
Paper: Whisper White, Pool Party, Champagne Glimmer, Retired DSP
Ink: Versamark, Pool Party
Tool: Heat Tool, Tangerine Tango Embossing Powder, Stars Framelits Dies, Itty Bitty Accents Punch Set, Glue Dots
Accessory: Pool Party Ribbon (Last Year's SAB)

Hope you enjoyed it!
