The Eclipse Is Coming!

It seems the big news lately is the coming eclipse. People are looking for the special glasses to protect their eyes - they are sold out everywhere. Some people have reservations at more than one hotel so they can go wherever the weather is best. Alarms have been set so we won't miss it. Flights that will be in the path of the eclipse are sold out.

Yes, it's the BIG news, for sure.

So, I decided to attempt to make a card to commemorate the adventure of the Full Eclipse 2017.

I failed. (Though I do have to say the card looks better in real life than it does in the pictures.)

I also wanted to draw/doodle some lines to indicate movement, since this eclipse will move relatively quickly across the horizon. (They say it will only cause darkness for about 3 minutes.) Plus the hand-drawn lines (doodles) meet the requirements for this week's Sweet Stampin' "Doodling" Challenge.

August 19 - 25
Theme: Doodling

I hope you'll participate!

Here's the inside of my card:

You certainly didn't's a brilliant card and a great idea! The doodled lines are a great addition giving a air of movement.

Utterly brilliant Jeanette! I love your hat tip to the eclipse, that globe die is fabulous! I think I have the mini version of this, which when I bought it, I thought was that lovely large die, so I have die envy right now! LOL. I think your doodling is masterful, understated and elegant. Brilliant card hun! Hugs, Wends xoxo
