Space Boy - Thursday 19th June 2014

Good Morning Friends,

Hope you are all well and still enjoying fine weather wherever you are...I know one of my dear blog friends has been poorly with a bug these past few days, so hope you're feeling better Claire!

Thank you again to those who popped over to Sam's blog and left a message there about my DT card this week...especially as there were some problems with the site for a few hours. Thanks for persevering and popping back, it meant a lot to me. I enjoyed making this week's card (well I've enjoyed making them all!) -  I love big bows but rarely use them,  but the striped ribbon was really crying out for a great big bow!!! I've come to the end of the cards made for Sam's TV shows now and am working on a home decor project for next week!

Anyway, today I'm giving you a break from the fairies (there are plenty more!) and  am sharing  a card that I was  recently asked to make for a little boy's birthday.

The backing paper is from a pad I had in my paper/card stash and the space ship and other elements on the from are from Nitwit Designs. "Spaced Out' collection.

The image is a stamp by Lili of the Valley, which I coloured with Promarkers. I also got the inspiration for the card from their blog as I have to admit 'Mr Mojo' was taking a little break when I made this card!

 Inside I again used paper and images from Nitwit Collections.

Not a difficult card, but a fun one!

Love and Hugs,
Carole X
