We Have a Birthday

Welcome to you all! I spent my morning doing errands today. Had quite a few stops before I was able to come home and play a bit this afternoon. And I am happy with the results.

This is one of the stamp sets that I recently got from My Favorite Things. It's called Space Explorer. Both the image and sentiment are from the set. I colored the image with Copic and Spectrum Noir markers. I fussy cut the image because I haven't bought the coordinating dies yet. I added some green Stickles to the front of his space suit and doodled some dots with a white gel pen on the suit and stars. I heat embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder and die cut it with MFT Pierced Fishtail Flags. The background is distress oxide ink of Broken China, Seedless Preserves and Black Soot. I sprayed it with water and although you can't see it in the photo, there are tiny white spots that really looks like far away stars. I hated to cover up the fun background.To finish off, I added some self-adhesive glitter stars for dimension. My little space man is also popped up from the card with foam tape. I really like this one! I am entering these challenges:

Tom is taking tomorrow off work so we are going to work on reconstructing a retaining wall for the garden. So I probably won't get much crafting time tomorrow. But you never know. Thanks for stopping by and come visit again soon. Hugs to you all!

This card is just too cute!!! I love the little astronaut,stars and background!
We just got our garden planted and it looks so good! Tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, lettuce, herbs, berries, flowers. We may try some cantaloupe too. Some we started from seed but most plants we purchased at the flea market. One elderly man was selling different types of tomato plants for 2.50 each and they were 3 feet high!
Have fun working on your garden area!

This card is an absolute delight! I'm glad your errands finally wrapped up so you could create this gem. I really like the way you kept the color palette neutral with different shades of grays and purples and blues. They work together so nicely! And the yellow pops are so bright and festive. You did an amazing job on this and I appreciate you sharing your talents with us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!
