We love you Angus, rocket ship cards

The conversation went something like this:
"I'm making a card for Angus, remember Kate's little brother in New Zealand?"
"He's really sick and in the hospital right now, I'm going to make a rocket ship card with your stamps, do you want to make one too?"
"What does Angus like?"
"I'm going to make him a lego man to go in his rocket ship."
So, Mr. Ben and I used this week's Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge and the fabulous Half Pint Heroes set and I've gotta say, Ben's card just makes me smile.  His astronaunt and his accessories on the inside are  secured with scotch tape and when he put it over the lego guy he said "This is his seat belt, so he doesn't get out on his trip to New Zealand."

And here's the picture of Angus that made me think of him and legos.  Sending Fritha, Gordon, Kate and Angus our love from California.

Materials: Waltzinmgouse Stamps Half Pint Heroes, PTI Tiny Tags #2, Basic Grey Basics white patterned paper, vellum, PTI white card card, PTI All Booked Up Impression plate, Recollections Rhinestones, Versafine black ink, water color pencils, PTI Limitless Layers 2 1/2 inch circle die, PTI Tiny Tags die

What a sweet story, and two wonderfully sweet cards! This WMS set is so perfect for little guys, and I love the way Ben added the Lego men to personalize it.

Awww Ben this is just such a wonderful card! I am sure that it will be one of the best ones that Angus gets! You are so creative to seat belt that Lego spaceman in! He's just the perfect guy to fly that rocket to New Zealand! It's pretty cool how he's peeking out from the inside through that window!

PS...Erin, he is so precious!
