A nice day....

for a bubble bath!

The morning started early for me....my cell phone went off at 12:21am.... It is never a great feeling when after having just gotten to bed the phone rings. But, alas, it wasn't terrible news, just that the EK (extra kid) I watch was sick and wouldn't be coming in the morning. Nice to know, but wow it was early. Not even like I got to sleep in because I still had to make sure my son got off to school...lol

So, I needed myself a nice bath this morning and Sassy Design Studio supplied me with one. Their new challenge is to use sponging on your card, so, after cutting around the immie with a nestie, I sponged on some pink ink. Which in turn, I thought was too bright, so sponged on some vanilla to give it more of a vintage feel.



I am also submitting this to the DT call at the new Twisted Tuesday Challenge(2TC) blog. Melina was really pushing my talents with wanting a pastel square card with a hint of black apparent somewhere. Yikes, pastels?? I guess you can't go wrong with pink! My blue flower is much more subdued IRL...lol. A little bead flourish and a paper pieced tub round out my cream based card!


Thanks for stopping by.
HUGGZ,
April

Your card is so soft and beautiful, April. Very nice.

I must say, though... had EK's parents called me at that awful hour, I wouldn't have needed a bath... I would have needed a baseball bat. LOL! Why couldn't they wait until a respectable hour to let you know???
