U R Far Out!

Hey Kids!

How’s everyone doing on this fine Tuesday?  Well, I hope!!  I’m spending the day with my grandson, so I’m as happy a pig in slop!  LOL

U R Far Out

I have a couple of fun cards to share with you today – it’s ABC Toys & Crafts Tuesday!!  Woot!! Woot!!  I used a My Cute Stamps set called Spaceships & Robots.  I hadn’t inked this stamp set up until today, and I had so much fun playing with it that I made TWO cards!  LOL  I actually made this first card at a super fun crop that I attended when I was in AZ – fun times with sweet friends.  The best, right?  I stamped the robot and space ship images in Versamark, and heat embossed them.  I love the effect that heat embossing has on these fun images, don’t you?

Far Out

The second card was also made to share with you, but it also fulfills a couple of challenges that I came across.  I was inspirimageed by a sketch challenge that I found at Cards & Things Challenges, and by a fun little challenge that my stamping friend, Paula (mrslaird on SCS), posed for a Virtual Home Town Tour that a  bunch of us former VSN Hostesses are doing.  Paula’s home town is Houston, TX, so of course I had to do a card for NASA - “Houston, we have a problem . . . .”  LOL  I’m not sure what I’ll do with these two fun cards, but I’m pretty happy with how they turned out.

These two cards are too stinkin' cute...I have a grandson that would go crazy over these. You better put them away for safe keeping, you will be needing a birthday card for Brecken before you know it!

I am a horrible BFF, I have been too busy decorating to pop in and say hi, and of course leave praise for all your beautiful creations. I WILL stamp on that table when all is done, and I am redoing a second that has your name on it...so get your behind back down here to play!
