Imagine this…

 Today’s challenge at 365 cards was to imagine outer space. I knew I did not have any cute alien creatures or space ships so I went a different route. There are times we should march to the beat of our own drum, so I am marching here. I have loved this saying ever since I was given a card with it after my Dad passed away. I would like to think that he is up there in the heavens watching down on my family. When I think of outer space, yes the first thought is planets and rockets, but also Heaven.


The card itself is very simple. I began with my stars cuttlebug folder and used some Coredinations cardstock from the Vintage Flower Power pack. I sanded the cardstock so you could see the stars shining through. I stamped the sentiment (from Inky Antics) on a piece of scrapbook paper from the Complete Boy pack by My Minds Eye. A layer of dark red is behind it and I punched a corner punch by EK Success so you could see through the cardstock. A simple piece of twine holds the charm Hope.

I hope that I am able to hold onto this card for awhile and that I am not having to send it to a friend too soon.


  1. This is a beautiful card, but your post is even more so! I, too, think of Heaven as part of the wonder of outer space. My FIL was an engineer on part of the Apollo space program, and when he passed away last year, the stars definitely took on a special shine for us. Thank you for sharing this with us!

  2. what a wonderful sentiment, wonderful take on the challenge :)

  3. I love your different take on this outer space card. It's beautiful, as is your thoughts behind it. TFS!

  4. This is such a beautiful card and a beautiful sentiment, too.

  5. This is perfect. An to think of your dad watching over you is wonderful. Hugs.
