Twinkle Twinkle !

Hello and good afternoon to all you animal lovers ! It seems like once again R & B ( see previous post ) have stolen the show ! The  "Dastardly Duo " the paper eating canines are the heroes of the hour ! While most of you or so it seemed felt sorry for me the little terrors have a growing fan club.

I had many emails offering to send me scraps  ( paper ) and hinting that I should feed them more often, most of you thought that it was indeed a sorry state but how cute they looked etc. They are indeed cute and lovable and perfect little pooches but mainly when they are asleep !

I digress, this week over at Just for Fun one of my fave challenge blogs they have  set a little teaser, thank you Von ! The theme being star or stars . As usual it was a tricky one and I had three little projects on the go for it, I spent all morning with my pokey tool after die cutting a very intricate lace star and spending two hours trying to.... well poke out all the unwanted bits, only at the last minute to make a few extra holes than I shouldn't have ! The upshot being it looked like something R & B had had for supper ! This is one of the reasons I usually avoid intricate die cuts either my patience deserts me or my failing eyesight ( am suffering from the dreaded bloggers blindness ). Suffice to say I am posting something completely different. After showing it to hubby who asked in all seriousness why was this dude destroying a broom !!!!!! I ask you !  It looks like a guitar to me, what do you think ?

Hope you all have a fab weekend

Marie

  12. Great card Marie, but I have to admit at first sight I thought 'he' had dropped a tin of paint or spilled some very nasty looking blood - the joys of aging sight. Looked closer (nose to screen sort of close) and saw it was a guitar:) Elizabeth xx

  24. Definitely a guitar! It's fabuylous, Marie, so clean cut. Wonderful work - shame about the other piece.

  25. hi, Marie it's very clever the way you chose to use the star , I like it very much!

    The title "rock star" brings in my mind "guitar" so it will be difficult to confuse it with a ...broom . Every person look at things from different ways so ...ok

    Although...look at your home is tidy;
    Perhaps your husband wants from you...to take the broom :)

  26. Wow, your star is a Fab colour and your card sure rocks.
