Space Fun

This is a cute set and a very topical one with the astronaut Chris Hadfield coming back down to earth and all the news of his facebook, photos from space, singing David Bowie songs etc.  

I have 3 cards to share with you today, one of which is also on the MFP site.  All of them are pretty straightforward so need little explanation.  Once you have checked these out beam over to AnJenic to see her creations.  Please don't forget our FOSTV challenge this week - we would love you to play along with our "Inspired by something in your home" challenge.

Inside it says - "Sorry I Forgot" - sentiment in the set!

  1. Great idea to make background paper with the stamps-your cards are so cute!

  2. Super cute cards! Nice, homemade dp!

  3. Your cards are all very cute. The first is my favorite with the bright colors and the star punch. I had a star border punch and guess what? Right, I never thought of using it with this set. I also like how you did the sky on the last one and had the rocket blasting in the air.

  4. Awesome cards with this space set!

  5. I like the background sky on your last card, and all three are so cute. Using the embossing on your long card was a very creative way of using the white space.

  6. Wow love the star circles. And I like the placement of the images on your last card. Fits the sentiment perfectly. lol TFS AJ-

  7. Terrific cards! Love the colors!!! Great BG on your first one with the space craft images! Love the color of your spaceship!!! All three are terrific!

  16. Great cards, all such different designs. I especially like your first card, the bold colours, your stamped backgrounds the star bordered die cut - all works so well together.

  17. I am just loving those fun sentiments in the set and the way you designed such adorable cards.

  18. Fabulous work! I love the reference to David Bowie songs. Your rocket ship and planet card is awesome, the perspective is just right!
