 I want to tell you what technique I will be showcasing for the May blog hop ..... drum roll...pppprumppadumadum....faux layers and masking sections.  sorry don't know the fancy names that have been given to this technique but I'm sure you will know once you see my cards. 
Space Fun is just what it's name says.....FUN!  so let's jump right into outer space to see my cards. 

This card is full of fun starting with the faux masking layers then with the punched out corners and that just pure fun!  Now my next card is again doing that same faux masking layer but this time I punched out where the saying goes then taped it to the inside of the card.  I hope you can see all the water spots in the photos because I just love them.
Please continue on to Janine's  blog to see what she has in store for you.  Don't forget to leave comments along your journey for a chance to be included in our drawing.  see you tomorrow.
