Better



That's how I feel today...better. Got hit with a virus that knocked me for a loop, and today I'm finally feeling nearly normal. Not quite 100%, but it's so good not to feel bad. Starting slow. Made a quick little card for CASology's 35th challenge. Extra-Terrestrials. You know, ET....



Wanted to send a card off to a granddaughter who's a smidge lonely while away at college. She'll be fine for sure in the fall when a sister joins her, but wanted to let her know that we're thinking of her.


I started with SU base and black ink. The moon is an enlarged sticker from OA; I copied it in black and white which gave it these nice gray tones. The navy cardstock is just a scrap (yay!). The little alien is from Bobunny, and I used a flag stamp from an OA set. A few dots of stickles and that's it. Happy dances everyone.

Hey you! Welcome back :)

This is sooooo cute! The little 'shaky eye' is perfect! Great idea for the moon - it looks like it is floating off the card - cool effect!
