CASology 35 - Extraterrestrial


Today's CASology Cue Card is Extraterrestrial!



With these simple shapes and colours and not an alien in sight, I hope you got "phone", "home", and the little trail of Reese's Pieces as references to everyone's favourite alien, E.T.

When I showed it to him, my husband didn't get this card at all, but he didn't have the benefit of the Cue Card as a clue. Or the benefit of having grown up in North America. Really, sometimes I just ask too much of him! lol!

I slipped this into my son's suitcase this weekend when he headed off for his March break trip to Parris Island, SC with his squadron of Canadian Air Cadets. I'm sure he'll have a great time and learn a ton of really interesting military-type stuff, but he'll appreciate knowing that we miss him.

So now it's your turn - Area 51, Beam Me Up, Space Oddity (did you notice the Bowie reference? lol) -  take it away and show us what Extraterrestrial means to you! Don't forget to link up by Sunday at 4 pm (CST).

And drop by the blogs of the other design team members, to see their unearthly creations!
