Out of This World!

Hello!  Hope you had a great weekend!  We had a fun time this weekend.  The boys went mini golfing Saturday morning before the torrential rains hit then Saturday night they decided to have a boys party - s'mores on the BBQ and sleeping in the tent in the backyard.  It started out as a great party!  The s'mores were delicious (though they had a grill taste to them!) but the tenting...well...a bunch of guys decided to have a party just as the boys were going to bed, the wind was rustling the tend and Caleb thought there was someone outside so needless to say they all ended up inside and in their beds!  It was a good try though!

Today's card was made for my youngest monkey who turns 4 in 8 days!  How can that be possible?!  He can't be 4 yet!  I started with the sketch over at "Create with Connie and Mary" blog!  I really wanted to try this new Blast Off Stamp set since my boys totally love space!  I needed some bright colours to make it kid friendly and boyish!  Who doesn't love Gumball Green and Midnight Muse?!

There are some very fabulous cards over at the challenge so please, go ahead and check it out!  It will be worth the trip!

Cardstock: Basic Black, Gumball Green, Midnight Muse, Whisper White
DSP: Polka Dot Parade
Stamps: Blast Off
Ink: Gumball Green, Midnight Muse, Pumpkin Pie, Versamark
Other: Silver Embossing Powder, Dimensionals, Chevron Embossing Folder, Stripes Embossing Folder

Here are a few photos from the boy's party!  The fabulous s'mores!  My husband doesn't look too impressed (he just doesn't like have his picture taken)!  The bottom picture is the boys settling into the tent!  Hilarious!  They look so happy in there....!

Thanks for stopping by!
Have a great day!
