Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge - Cool Shades

It's Monday, and I know that's not always a good thing but it is a good thing when it's time for the Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge!  It is Cool Shades week so it's time to play with some colours.

So, you know me and pink.  Never the best of friends. So pink was kept to a minimum here!  Hee, hee.  These colours lend themselves to a fun and fresh card.  A friend of mine, who is also an astronomer, is starting chemo this week so I thought I would make her a bright and fun get well get with Space Cadet.

The card put a big smile on my friend's face yesterday so I was happy.  I must confess though that I look at the alien and think it looks drunk... hee, hee... or ill (or both!).  

Hope you have a chance to play along this week!  You have until Sunday August 26th to play along.  All the details are on the Paper Smooches Sparks Blog.  Be sure to check out the fabulous creations from the rest of the team!

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Hope you have a great week.
