Relax

It's time for a fabulous new challenge at the House-Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge and this fortnight our theme is: Splish Splash, anything to do with water, chosen by Tracey.

For my card I've used a fabulous image from Joanna Sheen's Happy Hoppers Love Bunny stamp set and papers from the LOTV Promises paper pad.  I have coloured my image with ProMarkers and added some Wink of Stella glitter to the bubbles.


I used a selection of dies to cut out my image and layers and an EK Success punch for the border.   The sentiment tags are LOTV and I have added some ribbon and Crystal Candy to embellish .


This challenge is being sponsored by:

mariannedesign.nl

Hi, Pauline! I can feel that warm bubble bath soothing away some of the muscle pain, and bringing a peaceful interlude to my soul. This is adorable! Love your colors and the sketch used. Your designs always bring me to a happy place - when my life quiets down, I'm defintely going to be investing in some HM CDs because they look like lots of fun! Do they also contain UNcolored images? thank you! hugs, de
