Imagine.. Alien Love Monsters!

..We come in Peace.. / ..Vi kommer i fred..

Hehe! Det Måtte bare bli et sci-fi kort med dette motivet! Hadde med meg favoritt kruset mitt inn på scrapperommet for å få inspirasjon til fargeleggingen. En tidligere brevvenninne fra Riga i Latvia sendte meg det over 15 år siden ♥ Hadde faktisk over femti brevvenner en stund.. men så begyndte jeg med scrapbooking og ble hekta på kortlaging, så ble det dessverre ikke tid til brev lengre... dessuten var det så lite å skrive om etter jeg ble ufør ;)
Noen av diecuts'ene og det ene monstret blir et senere prosjekt.

De morsomme monster motivene er fra Bugaboo Stamps, vår sponsor i denne ukens utfordring hos Creative Fingers #112. Og som alltid har vi et 'Lag-hva-du-vil' tema :) 

My DT card for this fortnights challenge #112. at Creative Fingers is full of alien monsters! As always it is an 'Anything goes' and you are more than welcome to join with your creations.
I luv all things sci-fi and just one look at this fun image from our fab sponsor, Bugaboo stamps ~ I saw cute little aliens! :)

If you take a look above in my scraproom pic, u will see my fave mug from an old penpal (a girl in Riga, Latvia), which inspired the bright colors. It's actually more than 15 yrs old, the mug! Once I had 50+ penpals, but the crafting took completely over as my main hobby ♥ ♥ ♥

Had a few leftover monster and aliens I didn't end up using, so there will be a similar themed project soon I think!
