Tiny Bubbles.......

Today is day 133 over at 365 Cards. Today's challenge is to think of bubbles and how they might inspire your card. Vicky's beautiful inspiration card is here:



Here is what I did! Every time I lean back in a tub of deep, warm, delightfully smelling bubbles, I remind myself that no matter how crazy or bad the day was, life IS good!

So...I made a little matchbox - It's about 2.5 x 4 finished size.



All stamps are TAC, and again, I used Versafine black ink as my images were detailed. The barrell was colored with Kooh-I-Noor Colored Pencils and blended with mineral spirits and all other coloring was with Tombow markers.



I have a package of wonderful bath salts that I plan to put some shredding in around and under, and this will make a very cute last minute gift for someone special!

Hope you like it! It was fun to do!

Have a great weekend - I'm off to run a few errands, then back home to start some supper. Hugs and blessings to all of you!

Ooooh, a nice warm bubble bath would be very nice! Adorable box, I love the idea to make it a bath gift.

I got my Kids Quotes set at AC Moore. It's a clear stamp set with four quotes and afew cute images. There are a lot of the quotes on wood mounted stamps that I've been eyeing too!

How cute! I love that skunk in the tub... especially with the shower cap on her head. Tee hee.

A bubble bath sounds great, although my tub isn't the most comfy. Hmmm... actually what I would love is a jacuzzi to go sit in for awhile, looking up at the night sky. In my dreams!

Love ya,
Lisa
