With Cath's Trendy Triangles Challenge over at Moxie Fab World, I seem to have triangles on the brain at the moment! So this morning I made another card using triangles.
I love string quilts and the added bonus is that they are great for using up scraps. So I thought I'd use up some scraps by making a star with string points for my card.
Stamp (Hero Arts) - Fantastic Birthday
Die (Hero Arts) - Geometric Shapes (used diamond shaped die)
To start with I cut strips of card in various colours and adhered to a piece of backing card. Then I die cut triangles using half of the diamond shaped die out of Hero Arts' Geometric Shapes set. In the same way I die cut the central triangles for the card. To finish I just stamped the sentiment and added a rhinestone.
I've only a few more days of holidays left so we've been making the most of our days off and headed off to Cahir Castle and the Rock of Cashel last week. Here are some photos from our trip.
A cannon ball from a siege in 1599 can been seen lodged in the wall to the left of the lower arrow slit.
Thick walls with arrow slits.
Another defensive area inside the main walls with working portcullis and holes above the gate for dropping boiling water, rocks etc on any attackers.
A Tudor fireplace.

12th century round tower and 13th century cathedral
View of nearby abbey
A carving in the cathedral. It reminds me of St Patrick but I'm not sure if it is of him.
Ceiling of 11th century Cormac's Chapel. Only fragments of the original frescoes remain. The frescoes were covered by whitewash during the Reformation.
A cheeky lad in Cormac's Chapel!
Sorry for all the photos but I love spending hours exploring places like these! Enjoy your weekend!
