Greetings, Earthling!

Hi everyone! It's Monday again; already? Here are two cards I made over the weekend. The first one is for Kristina's Finally Friday challenge (create a circle card or a holiday card). The second one was for the circle card (& color) challenge for Embellish Magazine. My computer acted up on me when I was trying to upload the card for the challenge, so I didn't make the deadline. Sigh! I hate computers sometimes.



A few months ago, I ordered the Greetings, Earthlings set from Stampin' Up. This is the first time I've used the stamps.


Since I don't have Copic markers, my coloring "tool" of choice on these cards was to use paper pieceing for images such as this cute alien. Both cards are 4.25" in diameter. I used a toothpick as the banner holder on the first card. I like how it looks.

Thanks for stopping by!

Card Ingredients
Stamps: Greetings, Earthling (SU!)
Paper: Pacific Point - textured, Kraft, Chocolate Chip, Soft Sky, Crushed Curry, Whisper White, Green Tea designer paper, Good Morning Sunshine designer paper (All SU!)

Other: foam tape, Stickles, butter (Making Memories)
