Little Boy Blue

I'd like to say thank you for all your lovely comments recently and to apologise for not having visited your blogs as much as I'd like. April and May are really busy months for me at work, throw in lots of family birthdays including my son's 17th (oh, gosh did I say 17?!!!!) among other things and there are just not enough hours in the day!
Today’s card was made just for fun for a change. I was inspired by the challenge at Here Come The Boys and it features yet another LOTV image! This was in my recent fantastic goody bag prize from LOTV and so I thought it only fitting that I enter it into their first new monthly challenge on the Ideas To Inspire blog.

LOTV Monochrome

Image - ‘Astronaut’ – LOTV coloured with Promarkers
Papers - ‘Back To Basics II’ & sentiments – Dovecraft
Blue card – Coredinations
Rocket & planet are clipart
Stars - stamped, cut out and covered with Hunkydory’s Diamond Sparkles ‘Angel Whispers’ glitter
