Look what landed in my backyard...

Haha! HAPPY FRIDAY everyone! :D
I hope this post finds you well and ready to have an incredible and fun weekend.
I have been wanting to use this Digi Shack image since it debuted, I perused through the different challenges to find a sketch that would work for my idea and here's all the ones I managed to squeeze into one little spacecraft:


The absolutely fun layout is from Eat Sleep Stamp (basically my daily routine, then add 6 children and all of their friends somewhere in there - lol!).
At first I was a little bummed out that there was a glare off of my protective shield, but then I was thrilled to see the way it looked on the computer! I punched out a piece of clear cardstock when the top of my Pringles can looked too bulky. Yes. I said Pringles can.
And then I realized when I was done that GASP! No bling or ribbon? Which is perfect for ABC Challenges this week - Zero embellishments! When I was talking to my friend yesterday about this challenge, surely there was no way I could create something without doodahs. All the stars are from a piece of DP.
And I do believe there is also a polka dot challenge going on, I'll be sure to update once I find the link!

Here is a closer look at the card (kind of a lame pic, but there are a lot of layers and dimension going on):

Thank you so much for coming by on this wonderful Friday! Have a super weekend everyone, I will be back on Monday with some Doodlelicious sneak peeks of what Melyssa has in store for the 15th's new releases! Sah-weet schtuff, you won't want to miss it. ;)

*Love and Aloha*

Hi Joni! I am so neglectfull, and I appologize. You left a comment on my art blog a long time ago, asking if you could use some of my artwork for inspiration for card challenges. To be quite honest with you I post to my card blog alot more than my art blog. It's just where my passion is at the moment (I know you get that!). You are however more than welcome to use my work for inspiration, I would be honored and if you are intersted in checking out my card blog here is the link. http://prairiefairy.blogspot.com/

Thanks again for such a lovely compliment and sorry I took so long to reply, I just noticed it!
