Hey there, I'm behind in posting my project for the Dog Days of Summer Virtual Stamp Night (VSN) through Splitcoaststampers!  Ann's challenge, Bright Star, was to make a card with either a sunset or sunrise and include some kind of star somewhere on the front.  She also wants to know who the brightest star is in our life...well, that would be my hubby!  He's definitely a keeper!  *grin*

When I first read about Ann's challenge, I was a little freaked out thinking there's no way...but then I dug through my stamps and found The Big Kahuna from Whipper Snapper Designs.  He's the perfect little critter to have a sunset peeking from behind him.  I still needed to incorporate a star though...then I had a brainstorm!  I've had a little star sitting on my desk for about a month that I had scored and shaped and at the time, I thought it looked like a starfish.  I left it there thinking I would do something with it one of these is the day!  The background was made with Bazzill card stock and the Swirls Cutting Plate from Taylored Expressions.  Talk about an easy, no fuss background!
