World Card Making Day with the Drunken Stampers!

Welcome! Today is an extra special day--it is Saturday so it is time for a new challenge at Drunken Stampers  and it is World Cardmaking Day! Wait until you see what my fellow Tropical Hooters at Drunken Stampers have created for this out of the world challenge- lots of out space fun! 

Today's challenge is a person- Neil Armstrong! OK- so I know this sweet gal from My Favorite Things does not look like Neil but she is so stinkin' cute and she is an astronaut so I could not refuse to use her!  I make most of my cards to send to Operation Write Home so I am super careful about my use of glitter. I do not use loose glitter on any of my cards but I love shimmer so I used a glitter paper that is sealed for the mat and the stars. I coated her helmet with a few layers of glossy accents to give it a glass like look. I placed my 'Neil -wanna- be' on an Action Wobble and she is floating in space! Did you just say 'what is an Action Wobble?'  Really- where have you been- in outer space? A totally fun item that brings movement to your card- what child can resist? Take a look at my super-short, super non-Academy Award contender movie clip below to see her trip to the moon. (Have you seen the movie Gravity yet?)


Fun, right? What are your plans for today? There are so many wonderful sites with ideas and techniques to celebrate WCMD. I plan to hang out with a tall glass of diet Pepsi and visit with the Drunken Stampers, the gals at Operation Write Home and of course checking out all the cards at 
I have another post today with a card for OWH- a thank you card. 
Hope you enjoy the weekend, thanks for stopping by and after all of the inspiration all over the web- how can you help but craft on!
Take care, Diane
