I Want To Believe...

Ok, so maybe I've watched one too many episodes of The X-Files, but I love this Changito in Space stamp set by Stampendous from i {heart} papers! I matched him up with one of my favorite papers of all time (you may remember me using it heavily back at Christmas) called Hickups. Back in December, I thought it looked like a snow flurry. Now I think it looks like a super cool galaxy. :o) Could it be any more versatile? hehehehe. I punched a 1/4" hole at the end of the space ship and threaded three pieces of metallic silver string through it, then adhered that to the paper using Crystal Effects in a smoke trail pattern. I also added blue and white stickles to the blue and white dots on the paper for a little more dimension and sparkle. Voila! It's very simple (again!), but I thought it would make a cute kid's card.

I hope you have a wonderful Sunday. We're still fighting the sickies here, but at least the weather is improving!

Little Miss Clever you continue to astound me. I LOVED the xfiles. I had such a crush on Duchovny. I don't anymore he doesn't seem to be aging all that well and with his addiction, yeah too much man for me.

So adorable, Sarah! You KNOW I love Changito! This paper is great for lots of things (I used it a while back for bubbles) and the ribbon condensation trails are such a fun addition! Really adorable!
