Shoot For the Moon!

I love the sentiment “Shoot for the moon – even if you miss, you’ll land amongst the stars”. I think I use it a lot when setting goals for myself. I have the “moon” goal which is usually quite challenging and lofty, the “back up” or “stars 1” goal, which is still a challenge but perhaps slightly more realistic and the “worst case scenario” or “stars 2” goal….LOL. For example, as a Stampin’ Up! Canada demonstrator, one of the things you can earn through sales, promotions etc is a Trip (this past year was Thailand). So that tends to be my “moon” goal. This year, I came close, but not close enough to earning that goal. However, I easily earned my “stars 1” goal – an iPad Air2! The new Stampin’ Up! business year has started again this month, so once again, the “moon” goal is the trip (this year is an Alaskan cruise). I will have to see what my “stars” goal will be!

This is a spinner card made with the Shooting Star set (available in Wood Mount or Clear Mount) and the coordinating Sliding Star Framelits Dies. Have I mentioned lately how much I love coordinating framelits and images? No fussy cutting. Just my cup of tea! We used the Foam Adhesive Strips to lift the front portion of the card and allow the sliding/spinning mechanism to work better. The strips are a little thicker than the Stampin’ Dimensionals. We used pennies with a dimensional behind the star to allow the mechanism to move. You could also use small washers if you’ve already gotten rid of all your Canadian pennies. Though you maybe can’t see it in this picture, the star is glitzy – coloured with the Gold Wink of Stella Glitter Brush. (this is always when I yell “Stellllllaaaaaaaa” in my head. Perhaps I shouldn’t have admitted that??!! LOL).
