Up, UP, and AWAY !!!!!!

I made this card to wish my youngest nephew a great BIG HAPPY 8th Birthday!!!!!  I went with a theme idea for his gift and bought him a rocket.  So you can imagine my suprise when the challenge for this week at "less is More" was Up, UP, and AWAY !!!!!! For this card I used Pacifica Cardstock and my Cricut Artiste cartridge.  As if cutting it from my Cricut wasn't simple enough the rest was just backing the card with glitter trim and Confetti B&T paper.  I finally added some stars and epoxy bubbles to lend to the outer space feel of the card.  Viola quick and simple and yet SO perfect for a boy's birthday and a less is more challenge !

CUTE . . . .

The challenge over @ H2H this week is cute!  Well with a teenage boy cute isn't a part of my everyday life.  Video games, late nights, Dirt, smell, last minute changes and a healthy dose of conflict are more the daily menu. SOOOO when the challenge was cute I happily grabbed one of the samples I made for a friends baby shower. 

I LOVE THIS CARD ! ! ! !  I used my Cricut to cut the umbrella, rain drops and banner.  The sentiment is from one of my 1st ever CTMH stamp sets Tiny Typewriter Alphabet.  The B&T paper is Confetti Wishes and Balloon Ride.  The cardstock is White Daisy and Thistle (a new fav).  The sentiment is inked in Pacifica as well as the distressing for the Balloon Ride.
