Hello Crafty Friends,
Thank you for stopping by again! I appreciate the time you give and comments you make.
Do you ever look at a weird holiday list? There seems to be a holiday for every occasion imaginable. This week we are celebrating one of those days...Astronomy Day.
This Week's Challenge...Use a Star
A bit of information...Astronomy Day is an annual event intended to provide a means of interaction between the general public and various astronomy enthusiasts, groups and professionals. This event was started in 1973 by Doug Berger, the president of the Astronomical Association of Northern California. His intent was to set up various telescopes in busy urban locations so that passersby could enjoys views of the heavens. Since then the event has expanded and is now sponsored by a number of organizations associated with astronomy. Astronomy Day also forms part of Astronomy Week, which begins on the preceding Monday.
Here is my Design Team project
I used the following sketch from The Sweet Stop.
Adding a tag to the front of a card creates a different effect. Add a few paper layers and then some ribbon.
One happy hippo holding star-shaped balloons.
Wiggly eyes so he can see better! Check out that star button.
