Happy Sunday!  I can't believe that the sun is out one day and the next is cold and windy - brrrrrrrr!  I need my sunshine...  Well, today after church, I'm gonna curl up with my dogie and read a good book - well, uh... after I get my DT card done for Karen's Doodles.  Just when I thought I was caught up, something else comes up and I feel behind again (sigh).  BUT, I am still having fun.  I love creating and getting my hands inky and gluey.  Isn't it so much fun trying new products and ideas?

Today I've used the fab sketch (again) from Chris at Simon Says Stamp.  They are having a challenge on Paper Craft Planet Here.  You have until the 18th to submit your card using this sketch.  Come on, join in the fun : )

I chose to feature Bubble Bath Bradley on my card today.  He's one of the new High Hopes stamps from Paper Romance.  If you want to add this adorable stamp to your collection, head on over to see Amy.  She'll fix ya right up!

Stamp:  Bubble Bath Bradley from Paper Romance
Paper: DCWV Flower Shower Spring Stack
Spellbinders:  Shapeabilities Label
Quickutz embossing folder:  Polka Dots from i {heart}papers
Bubbles: White Liquid Applique
Diamond Glaze
Buttons and eyelets from stash

To distress and accentuate the polka dots, I used a sanding tool that looks like a short, wide nail file which was included in the Making Memories Tool Kit II from Michael's.  For the bubbles, I was pleasantly surprised with the Liquid Applique!!!  Until I was able to buy Liquid Applique, I tried puff paint.  It did puff up, but was a totally different consistency and I didn't feel that I had much control.  I highly suggest buying the Liquid Applique, especially for smaller areas.  I noticed that 7 Kids College Fund has a ton of colors to choose from and they are only $2.89 each.  Such a good deal, I think!

Challenges entered:
A Spoon Full of Sugar - Male inspired
Lots To Do - Embossing folder & liquid applique
Simon Says - Card for a child
The Pixie Cottage - Embossing
C.R.A.F.T. - buttons

Thanks for stopping by!

May God bless you, keep you and comfort your soul ~
