April Fools Day Fun!

There was no fooling around in my craft room today! Just flat out fun with stamping, cutting and fussy cutting to create for this weeks challenge at Simon Says Monday is called "Inside the Box." I decided to use this adorable image from Little Scraps of Heaven designs (it's on sale now for just $1 at to make a gift box for one of my staff. Bought some empty takeout boxes from my favorite Chinese restaurant a while ago and it worked perfectly. Cut the spaceship ring and top of the antennae from an uncycled bit of the liner that keeps a can of coffee fresh. Am glad that I kept it when I opened a can of Folgers this week. Added a bit of dotted swiss ribbon, plus large silver stars, which are actually hoop earrings. So retro!  (Oh, and the sentiment is from a digi set from Beccy's Place., also called "Out of this World". I'll be making a card from the great digis in that set in the near future!)

The current Sketch Saturday Challenge allows us to select any Sketch from the last few years as our guide. I chose #332, flipped it on it's side and used a digi set from Whimsie Doodles named Space Cadets. (Sadly, it is no longer available since WD shuttered their website two weeks ago. I purchased a handful of images before they closed down because they've been on my wish list for some time. I will miss their wonderful images!) Once again, the sentiment is from a digi set from Beccy's Place called "Out of this World". I also provided an additional photo of the card, using th ecard so that you can see that I used a silver marker to get a metallic sheen. Also used a sparkly gel pen on the astronaut's suits, but not sure if you can see that in the photo.
