Fun with aliens...

Good Sunday Morning! I wanted to share a couple cards I made last night. This first one I'm entering in the CAS-ual Friday's challenge #64, which is to feature things you see in the sky. Here is my wacky take on it:

And the inside:

I used two sets from Paper Smooches: Space Cadet and Metropolis. I embossed the scene and colored that adorable alien with Marvy Uchida markers and gave him a wiggle eye! LOL! The yellow star DP is from HOTP, the card stock is from Bazzill. On the inside I used alpha stickers from Making Memories. Loved making this card!

So to continue with the alien theme, I came up with this card:


I printed out the sentiment from the computer. (Don't be afraid to do that if you don't have a stamp handy! It's fun and you can play around with a boat load of fonts.) I used Paper Smooches Space Cadet stamp set again. I stamped him twice: once on the panel and again on patterned paper by October Afternoon, fussy cut that out and glued over the first image. I printed the guitar from clip art found on the internet, fussy cut that and glued to the alien. Easy peasy!

I'm also going to enter these for the Paper Smooches guest DT member call for next month. Wish me luck!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great day!
