It’s so fun to have a rocket again! It’s so perfect for little boy cards–boys aren’t always as easy to stamp for as girls . . . I don’t have any "little" boys to stamp for any more–darn kids–why do they hafta grow up anyway? *frown*  But, this rocket still captured my heart anyway . . .

OMG, if you only knew all the digging that went on in my studio to find this iridescent shred that I *knew* I had, but bought mebbe 4-5 years ago!  I would have had quite the hissy fit if I hadn’t found it, as I thought it would make for the most awesome "exhaust"  Thank goodness I emerged victorious from the black-hole ………….. (bwah ha haaaaaaaaaa!!!)

I just had to put that little page pebble on the window–by a stroke of luck, it happened to fit!!! 

I love it when things work out like that . . . *grin*

Anyway, what other uses and occasions would you suggest for this rocket?  I wanna hear ‘em!


P.S.  Thanks for sharing your favorite holiday movie lists with me–there are some I was unfamiliar with, and will definitely have to go scope out; you can never have too many feel-good holiday movies, can ya’?!

  1. Maybe to congratulate someone on a “lift-off” in their life – new job – going to college, etc…..

  2. Great card! Love the window. We were at the Space Shuttle Discovery launch in October at Cape Canaveral and found the cutest hat for my nephew in the gift shop — had a space shuttle on it, and for the flames it had red, yellow and orange threads — same idea as your irridescent shreds but it really looked life-like. Also, to simulate “lift off”, maybe some cotton balls at the bottom, then the thread or shreds? Rocket would be vertical at that point, of course.

  3. Oh, I love this. What a popper of a card – well done again. Thanks for the eye candy!

  4. WOW!!

  5. What an adorable card!!! I love the bright and fun colors. Way to ROCK IT…(haa haaa haaa!)

  6. Things did work out great for this one , it’s just spectacular !!

  7. So VERY cute! I love that tinsle you have streaming out the exhaust, just so darn creative!
