Luke is another Kindy friend who celebrated his 5th birthday a couple of weekends ago. I generally find boy cards really hard to make especially since I own very little in the way of boy specific stamps.

I got the inspiration for this card from Luke’s invitation which had a space theme – it got me thinking about rocket ships and I started flicking through the catalgoue and found Pun Fun… problem is I don’t own it!. Thankfully I was able to borrow it from Angela who is in our team – THANKS Angela!!

The idea to use the Sweet Treat Cups to make the ‘earth’ just came to me. I love when that happens… wish it would happen more often!

So here is my space inspired card.

I almost thought I would have to go on the scrounge for some star stamps as well but thankfully I had my Season of Joy stamp set sitting on my desk so I used the star from that set and also the little star from Riveting (retired).

I was really pleased with how it came together. I made a very special “peel me off” section inside the card in the hope that all my hard work wouldn’t be destroyed in an attempt to get to the mini MM’s!
