For One of Our Stars

A few years ago, my mom cleaned out a ton of her stuff from her crafting room.  She was in her late eighties and her eyes just weren't good enough to do all the crafts she used to her.  So I "inherited" hundreds of old buttons, yards and yards of lace, little wooden pieces, and many more items that I probably will never use.  But one of the things I have loved is the wooden shapes.  Sometimes I paint them but this time I used some distress ink on the edges and then glued a star from the Verve Starry Die on top of each star.

This card is one of the Thank You cards I made this week for one of our Heroes in the Military Service.

By the way, the HUGE Memorial Day Bloghop by Operation Write Home is happening again May 25.  See the badge on my side bar and make sure you come back for that.  (Rumor has it that I will have some blog candy again this year. wink!)
