He's Out Of This World!!

Thank goodness it is finally Friday.  Okay it is Friday the 13th but I personally don't buy into the theory that it is a bad day.  As far as I am concerned, it is the end of another week.  It has been a really long week.  My husband has been gone a lot and extremely busy.  I do miss him when he is not here.  I am so proud of all the work he does.  He is truly a remarkable human being and I am blessed to have him in my life.

Now on to a fellow who is not a human.  He is rather cute though!!  Again he is part of the Looney Toons family and if you watch the cartoons you probably already know who I am talking about.  Let me introduce him to you.  Ladies and gentlemen, meet .........

......It's Marvin the Martian!!!!!  I just love this guy.  He makes me laugh every time I see him.  So let's get started on this card.  I used a Whisper White card stock for the base of my card.  I then added a layer of Basic Black to it.  I chose to use Marina Mist for the top layer.  Prior to attaching it, I punched out circles in Whisper White, Basic Black and Basic Gray.  I used the 1", 3/4", and 1/2" circle punches to do this.  I then laid the circles in a random pattern on the Marina Mist paper until I was happy with how it looked.  Then I adhered them down using runner adhesive.  Next it was time to texture the card stock.  I chose to use an impression folder from Cuttlebug called Spots & Dots.  I liked the look of all the circles behind Marvin.

He has the sweetest little face don't you think?  Once again, I learned this punch art character from Ellen Kemper, and again I would suggest you visit her blog for instructions on how to create him and the correct punches to use.  This was the second one I made and he looks really good in my opinion.  

Do you like his shoes?  I love them!!  They are just too cute for words.  I just wanted to show you a close up of them.  
As you head off into the weekend, I wish you one filled with happiness.  Since Monday is a holiday, I too am going to take the day off from blogging.  With a little luck, maybe I will get some much needed time with my husband.  I have missed him so.  I will be back on Tuesday with a new card to share.  Thanks for dropping in today and I will see you Tuesday.
