I bet you didn't know that May is "Martian Month."
Last October I started making pillowcases to send my four adorable grandchildren each month along with a fun card. The first few months were easy: October- Halloween, November- Thanksgiving, December-Christmas. I dropped the ball in January. February-Valentine's Day, March-Saint Patrick's Day, April- Easter. Then came May. hhhmmm There's Mother's day, but that doesn't lend itself to a fun kids card and pillowcase. So I went in search of a theme. We don't have a fabric shop in out little town and nothing "inspired" me at Walmart so that meant a road trip to a larger town nearby to a REAL fabric store. As I wandered the isles in a fabric induced daze, tossing bolts of fabric into my cart with reckless abandon, I saw "IT" The perfect fabric for my May projects. Cute enough for the boys but not "girly". I have three grandsons and one granddaughter so there is a fine line to be walked between boyish and girly. This fabric fit all the requirements, at least to a desperate grandma. The fabric has cute little aliens, spaceships and rockets on a light blue background. I knew there was the perfect Martian on the Everyday Paper Doll Cricut cartridge that would coordinate with the fabric and make a fun card. So TA DA "May is Martian Month" was created. I think I will lobby to have it declared a national holiday. You know to further intergalactic relations.
Anyone interested in seeing pictures of my creations? It doesn't matter, I'm going to show you anyway. If I get enough comments I may even post directions.
See, isn't that fabric soooo cute.
I love the dark blue border.
Blast off!! See my cute little Martian in the window.

Ok, let's see if I get any requests for directions.
