Falling stars and an apology

Hello lovely crafters
Here is my card for this weeks 52CCT challenge on the them of Stars:

It's a lovely theme and should get your ideas flowing. I had an idea of what I wanted to do but when I'd made it it didn't look very Christmassy so I made another one at high speed in different colours. It's actually better too though I'm not quite happy with the sentiment. Bit mad though, making it all again, but I have another version ready for another occasion!

I cut out the stars which came from The Range and are very pretty but are a fiddle to get out of the dies. 
Mounted it on a scrap of backing paper then fitted the cut out stars back into the holes. 

The reason I am so pushed for time is that I am creating a Flower Farm here. I'm still working the day job for a short period as well as setting this up during the worst spring ever. I took two weeks out to go on a Floristry course which was brilliant but put me even further behind with everything else. My new site is : and I am on Instagram @floralacre The website is not finished yet. I'm finding that and all the social media stuff hard as it's all new to me. 
I am constantly chasing my tail but am making progress. I'd love to catch up with you all but don't know when I last had time to visit any blogs. Thank you to those of who still take the time to visit. I will get back to visiting soon, I hope. 

Popping over to Pixie's Snippets Playground as I have used ancient snippets and also old cardstock!


  1. Fun Christmas card, the stars look really pretty falling down the card. A flower farm, how exciting and sounds a dream working with beautiful flowers. Wishing you every success in your new venture Alison and look forward to lots of pretty flower pictures x

  2. I love your cascade of stars! Those star dies are so pretty, and look fantastic recessed like this. I wonder what the original colour way was! It sounds like you have really exciting things going on - hard work but sure it'll all come together and be worth it!

  3. Magnifique couleur, très originale et différente, mais quelle jolie idée, biz

  4. Beautiful image the building You chose well for the theme.
    Your blog is very nice,Thanks for sharing good blog.

  5. Brilliant card Alison - oddly enough I've been sort of mulling over doing this to a card, but with snowflake dies. So pretty!

    And congrats on the Flower Farm - sending very best wishes for it being a huge success.
