I had to most amazing weekend this past weekend!! I was able to attend Irish Fair down in St. Paul, Minnesota. I made it on Friday night and again on Sunday night. I had to work both mornings, but went down after work. On Friday night I got to see two great bands: Boiled in Lead and The Tossers. On Sunday night I was able to see Gaelic Storm. I didn't see much else at Irish Fair because of my work schedule, but now that I finally know about it I will be able to take the time off next year.

Because of Irish Fair I didn't do any crafting over the weekend and this weekend I will be out of town again, this time for a family reunion. So here is a quick project to tide you all over until I get a little more time off:
The card is 5 1/2"x4 1/4." I used white cardstock for the card base. The starry sky mat is cut at 5 1/4"x4" and is from the Stardust Stack by DCWV. I cut a piece of white cardstock at 3 3/4"x1 3/4," then rounded its corners and added two strips of blue cardstock.
The cloud and stars are from the "Groovy Times" cartridge, found on page 45. The cloud was cut at 2 1/4," which makes it about 1 3/8" tall by itself. The stars were cut at 1 1/2" and 2." I covered the stars with waterfall Stickles for just a touch of glitter.
The moon is a Peachy Keen stamp, from the February 2013 Stamp of the Month kit. I stamped it on silver cardstock, then cut it out. The face is also from the same kit. I used a white gel pen to add some detail to his eyes. The sentiment is from Fiskars and is stamped in Mediterranean blue ink by Tsukineko.
I made this card for the following challenges:
Cupcake Inspirations: birthday
Peachy Keen: sketch
BBTB2: moon and/or stars
