Stampin' Up! Christmas Star

When I saw the sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch I knew it was time to ink up my new Christmas Star stamp!  It's such a gorgeous stamp and one of the awesome single stamps currently available.  I wanted to do it in blues, so I used Night of Navy and the retired Bashful Blue.  The navy star is heat embossed with Iridescent Ice embossing powder for a bit of extra shine.  

Stamps:  Christmas Star, Greetings of the Season
Ink: Bashful blue, Night of Navy, Versamark
Paper:  Night of Navy, Bashful Blue, Whisper White
Accessories:  Iridescent Ice embossing powder, Basic Rhinestones
Tools: Heat Tool

Laila is feeling much better!  She's back to her temper tantrum throwing self in fact.  :)  We think she had the roseola virus because once her fever went away, she developed a rash.   It would explain pretty much everything from the past 5 days in fact.   Whatever it was, I'm glad it's gone.  It was not a fun time and Jason and I are still trying to recover emotionally.  We had a difficult time getting her to drink liquids while she was sick, but this cute open cup helped.  She had to hold it a few times and of course that meant dumping it out.  lol
