I decided I needed to send out some "thank you" cards to some people. Here are the cards I made:
and finally, the one I sent to Doug Reilly, the artist for NCIS (the guy who came up with Caf-Pow, among other things) and fellow shuttle fan:
And thanks once again to the actors and writers and artists and producers from NCIS and NCIS-LA who took the time to join us at FanFest 2010!!
No, other than Doug's and the one immediately above it (which went to Daniela Ruah of NCIS-LA), I don't remember which card went to whom. Jesse Stern (producer), Reed Steiner (writer), Daniela Ruah (Kensi on NCIS-LA), Doug Reilly, Peter Cambor (Nate on NCIS-LA), Muse Watson (Mike Franks), Joe Spano (FBI Senior Agent Tobias Fornell), Brian Dietzen (Ducky's assistant Jimmy Palmer), and Rocky Carroll (Director Leon Vance) were the recipients.
It was a test to see how many ways I could use one basic stamp. With the exception of three other stamps (two more shuttle stamps and a USS Enterprise stamp) used on the inside of Doug's card (and, of course, the stamps I use on the backs of my cards), only three other stamps were used. Some solid-colored card stock, some patterned scrapbooking card stock, an assortment of plain and decorative punches, a couple of different "heights" of dimensional adhesives.
And Happy Anniversary to the Mercury Project!
