I Come in Peace

This month's central theme for the Fan Club over at Splitcoast Stampers is "TV Dinners". The challenge is to design a project around a television show either past or present.

I had so much fun just exploring the possibilities! I used to be a TV addict, much more so than since I discovered card making. I really wandered away from the path of current shows and at risk of showing my age, I was lost in reminiscing about the good 'ol days of television. Some of my favorite shows from my youth were:

  • Mayberry RFD
  • Man from U.N.C.L.E. (major crush on Illya Kuryakin aka David McCallum)
  • The Donna Reed Show
  • The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet
  • The Patty Duke Show
  • Bewitched
  • The Partridge Family
  • The Fugitive
  • The Courtship of Eddie's Father
  • That Girl
and the show I chose for my card creation...My Favorite Martian. Aww, simpler times.

It's all about the details:
Card stock: Stampin' Up
Patterned Paper: My Mind's Eye and S.E.I.

Stamps: Stampabilities
Ink: Distress Ink, Black Soot
Accessories: Brads, Glossy Accents, SU Dimensionals, Copic Markers
Tools: Nestabilities, computer for sentiment
