an OUT OF THIS WORLD Thankful Thursday

Hi, everyone!

Now that the Mother's Day SAS4Kids cards have been shipped to Nationwide Children's, I'm turning my attention to cards for dads and special guys.

Today's card was inspired by the latest MFT Sketch. As you can see, I've flipped the sketch.

Distress Ink core papers; Neenah Soler white
Lawn Fawn out of this world images and sentiment, stamped in SU night of navy
image colored with Prismacolor pencils and embellished with Wink of Stella and Glossy Accents
Simon Says Stamp stacked stars die; SU oval stitched die
adhesives: Scotch ATG; Ranger multi medium matte; foam backing
The current Shopping Our Stash Back to Basics Challenge, which is to use a fussy cutting element. I'm hoping this little card counts. I did use dies for the star background and the stitched oval. However, the little astronaut was definitely fussy cut. Can I get an OK from the SOS Team

Thankful Thursday

Today, I'm thankful for series finales that get it right. It seems we hear about lots of finales that don't quite cut it. The Sopranos, Seinfeld, and Lost come to mind. Making a great send off of a fan favorite show must be an incredibly difficult thing to do. But, the folks at Bates Motel really knocked it out of the park. It was a pitch-perfect ending. Seriously well done.

Parting Thoughts

Headed out of town this weekend to visit a good friend. So, I'll most likely be off line the next few days.

So, have a great weekend! Thanks for stopping and happy scrappin'!
