Astronaut at Lili of the Valley



A marvelous Thursday to each of you!!! I hope you are having a marvelous week and are preparing for a spectacular weekend!! I know I am!!!

On May 11, Lili of the Valley will be introducing the cutest and sweetest Little Boy and Bear images and I am giving you a little SNEAK PEEK today of one of the little darlings!!! So often we only think of little girls' cards but with this release you will be so thrilled with such cuties for little boys!!! If you have a peek over at LOTV Ideas To Inspire Blog, you can see lots of SNEAKY PEEKS of these little sweeties!!!

The card base and all matting is Bazzill and the DP is from an old Tapestry Collection called Outer Space. The darling image was stamped on Cryogen White and colored with Copics, adding a computer generated HI to the pennant. The image was framed with a contrasting DP, adding a glittery space ship to the forefront. Is he not the cutest little tyke holding his astro bear and check out the astro bunny in the rocket!!! Too cute and funny!!!! I added some outer space buttons for alot of texture. The sentiment is from the new LOTV Clear Additions Range--Mixed Circular Sentiments and was cut out with double Nesties.



On the first panel of the inside I used some glittery star buttons with gold cording to simulate shooting stars. And for the jotting panel I used two glitter outlined Nestie Stars together with a Man in the Moon charm.

I hope you like my little fun creation and I know you are as excited as I am for Wednesday, May 11, when all of these little darlings at LOTV will be available for purchase...yippppeeeee!!! That's less than a week away!!!

Thanks, Tanya, for inviting me over to the challenge at The Pixie Cottage!!

Thank you so much for dropping by and I hope you will want to visit me often!! Have a wonderful day and until we meet again I send BIG hugs to you!!

So cute! I love the shooting stars with the tails on the inside too.
Thanks for sharing! :)

Beth said...

Cute card! Love this image and your papers are marvelous!

Traci S. said...

Traci Sings: "Let's hear it for the boys!!!" LOL Finally, some cute "boy" stamps! I have 3 sons, 3 grandsons, and 3 nephews who all love rockets and stars and planets...just at different intellectual levels! lol I love how perfectly you colored this image, Jacque. But, your cards are always perfectly colored! Love it! I think it is fun and creative the way you created your sparkling shooting stars.
And, then all of that space to write on that star...with the "man on the moon" looking on. So great! Almost as great as you, Jacque!

I just have the one question: Where is the flower? A "Jacque Card" without a flower? Impossible, I think. Where did you hide it...is it in the rocket...on the bear? Is it under the star on the inside? Or is this a momentous occasion? A No-Flower Jacque Card!!
Congratulations, Jacque!

Thank you for helping me laugh at myself! lol I love to visit here and see your wonderfully amazing cards, and laugh. I hope it brings at least a grin, if not a smile to your face!

He IS Able,
Traci S.

Danielle said...

OMG! This is sooooo different for your! and I LOVE IT! A boy card, I am in love with those stamps, as I have boys... You did an outstanding job with this little guy. Dear Jacque, you have great talent and you are such a versatile artist. I adore your card.
May I request some more boy card by Jacque?
Totally adorable. Hugs.
