CCC #35... sending you sunshine

Hello friends!!  Tuesday is here and with it comes a brand new CASology cue word!!  This week our cue word is literally out of this world!  Say hello to "extraterrestrial"!!  How about that for a cue word, huh?   Had me scratchin' my head about what I was doing to make because I was really, really stumped, lol!!   So I looked up the word in the dictionary and found that the definition states that it is anything that originated or existed outside the earth or its atmosphere, which includes the sun, the moon, the stars, asteriods, etc (have I given you some ideas??)   So, instead of little green men (actually "greys" as people steeped in Ufology... yes, that is a word I looked it up, too... would call them) I went with the sun. 




The lovely layout for my card is courtesy of the ready to expire CAS(E) this Sketch layout (at the time this goes live I will have but a few hours left to get it posted).  Anywhoo... I used a lovely set from Taylored Expressions called Garden Party Blooms as it has a sun with a matching die (love those matching dies, don't you???) and the sweet sentiment I used.  The clouds were die cut using a cloud die from PTI.   The little strip of paper is from the My Mind's Eye Moments 6x6 pad and the card base was made using PTI's Blueberry Sky cs... most appropriate I thought. 

Thanks for stopping by.... I really cannot wait to see what "out of this world" ideas all you super talented papercrafters come up with for this challenge!!  In the meantime make sure you check out the cards from the rest of the design team:   Melissa, Tracey, Jen, Ardyth, Judy, Maureen, Meghan and this week's guest designer, Beate.

Wonderful Rosemary. Much better than little green men, though I have no doubt that you would have made a wonderful card using them as well. :D

I love this happy card! I can't find my cloud dies, and they add so much to a card. Great card with lots of white space.
