Thanks Star

Wow I think the wind is trying to take my house away!! I can hear lots of things slamming around outside and the wind howling down the chimney brrr.

I wanted to use some Art Deco toppers I got quite a while ago, but never got round to using, I thought they would make a stylish, monochrome Thank you card, and this is what I came up with:
Sorry about the flash spot, but it was really difficult to focus on the image without the flash! The topper is from the Papermania Art Deco Roaring twenties collection. The patterned papers used to make the quilted strip are a Make & Create and a Papermania Capsule Collection, Bexley Black patterned papers. Finally a glitter ribbon, and silver Papermania metallic pen were used to finish off the image, and a sentiment added from peel-offs.

Finally, today's Audio Book Review:
The Devil’s Star by Jo Nesbo

The Oslo police force are short-staffed due to holiday’s when a murder occurs, throwing the two main detectives, who hold a grudge against each other, together in a race to catch the killer before he kills again. The only clues are a severed finger and a tiny red diamond in the shape of a star. A pattern emerges to indicate that they have a serial killer on their hands. Harry is an alcoholic who risks losing his job unless he uncovers the killer without further consequences, while Tom is suspected by Harry to be a corrupt policeman. This is a fast-paced story that keeps you on the edge of your seat. A very good story and well worth reading!

Thank you for looking
