You are outta this world!

Hi everyone, it's Mary J here to share a card I made for a little boy's birthday...

Ain't that little fella the cutest?!!  Whenever I look at him, I just wanna say "wheeee!".  He's from the Space Cadets set and the background is from the Background Borders Places set.  I embossed the background with a Cuttlebug folder and used some metallic cardstock to create the porthole.  And I even got to use up some of the hundreds of eyelets in my stash!

There is still plenty of time to join in this month's challenge of Kinda Spooky.  You don't have to use a WD image but we love it when you do!  I hope you can join us for a chance to win a digi of your choice or even get to be a Guest Artist if you do use a WD image!

Thank you for visiting and I will back soon with another Doodlelicious Diva make!

Lunchbox Notes

Hi everyone! It's Laura here with you today, and I've got a really fun and simple project to share!

I used an older digi set called Halloween Tags to make some little lunchbox notes for my kiddos! I love the cute jokes on the tags, and I thought the kids would get a kick out of finding these in their lunchboxes on Halloween!

(front view - jokes)

This was really easy to do... the digi file includes a "Quick Print" image, with all of the tags lined up. I just printed the fronts and backs of the tags to fill the full sheet of paper. Once cut, each tag is about the size of a business card.

I simply matted the tags with black cardstock, glued the joke to the front, and the punchline to the back! So easy!

(back view - answers)

That's all for this time!
Thanks so much for visiting!
