L'il Space Cadet

Hello dear friends. I'm back with another masculine card. This one's for a l'il fella who'll be turning 10 this weekend. He's into Star Trek (a fellow Trekkie .. yay!) and all things space-y. Last week, while we were deep in discussion about the hazards of travelling at warp speed and the decorations for his up-coming birthday party, he calmly requested that I leave out his age on the birthday card. Apparently at the ripe old age of 10 (and beyond) one must stop counting one's years! Seriously?! One has to stop counting? Well I've got news for you, buddy. It's my birthday next week and baking myself a cake big enough to accommodate all the candles. One for each year and yes, I am counting. I need to know I can still count! ;-)  Here's my ageless card for my youthful pal. The sketch is from Freshly Made Sketches #39 (my first!) and for the colours I turned to ColourQ # 141. I'm also taking this card to Charisma Cardz #23 and DYSU # 76 for their masculine party.

The papers are from Bo Bunny's "Blast Off" 6x6 pack. The green is bright and limey but in the photo it looks more like overcooked asparagus ...blech! At all corners of the card I attached white eyelets, which look kinda pale grey in the photo. I really need to sort out my lighting.
The spaceship is from WMS "Half Pint Heroes" stamp set. I coloured it in with Promarkers. For the die cut I used Spellbinders Labels 16. Of course I used pop dots to lift my spaceship.  
The sentiment is alos from the sme WMS stamp set.
On the inside I attached another spaceship, stamped a greeting from the "Half Pint Heroes" set and tied a little bow with some twine.
Thanks for dropping in today. It's Friday tomorrow and I am curiously exhilarated. Wonder why...


PS - Drop by MIM #94 to view some astronomical talents!
