It's been awhile!!

Well, here's what I've been up to......last weekend several of my stamping friends and I went to CKC in KC.  We just went to the CKC vendor faire (no classes).  I could have stayed there a lot longer but $$ does become an issue at these things!  We then found lunch and went shopping some more at the local scrapbook stores around KC thanks to Barb and Beverly for getting us where we needed to be!!    My friend, Laurie, found us a fab place to stay for free while we were there.... down by the Power and Light District overlooking the Sprint Center.  The view from the 18th floor was awesome especially when we turned off the lights at night!  We couldn't imagine living in a place like this (a condo) but it was wonderful for one night!!  Here's the view we had: 

I have been meaning to post this card and well, just haven't gotten around to it.  This is a favorite of mine using Star Prints and Polka Dot Basics.  I actually cut these stars out by hand before I bought my star punch by Fiskars.  Having this punch makes this set SO easy to use.  I love how you can layer the stars and the addition of the stitched button!

Here's another view of this card:

So preddy! Star Prints is a huge fave of mine too ;D though I don't own a star punch yet so I have to hand cut 'em which can take a while LOL!
Love your use of the Around & About Sentiments too for the background - very clever!
