Anyways, today's card is one I made for a SFYTT from Jen Del Muro (www.iheart2stamp.com) - I think it was a sketch from August 2nd. Anyways, I just love this turtle from Stamping Bella, and wanted to stick with bright primary colors! I'm trying to finish up some of this week's challenges, and thought I'd go back and share this one!

I found it hard to get the full idea of my project with pictures, so pardon my long line of photos I'm about to show you. I made a Bath Caddy - with the instructions I found from a fellow blogger (http://myideaofrecess.blogspot.com/2009/05/ketto-caddy.html). (I may even do something like this as back-to-school teacher gifts for the kiddos!) This came together easily, and I was impressed with how strong and stable it is! I filled the caddy with bath products - bubble bath, body wash, lotion, and a special wash towel.

I'll give a couple angles only to get a better "look/see" at the colors. First off, the paper I used is from Cosmo Cricket - Everafter. As the name implies, it's a very elegant paper. I paired it with Basic Grey and Tangerine Tango. I love the orangish red and blue color scheme - just gives it some warmth and elegance. I also - for the first time EVER - sewed on the card for a different bordering effect. And the pearl baubles for the bubbles, really tie it all together.
So what do you think? At some point, I'll share the other Sophie Bathtub cards! And did you see Hanna Stamps release from Monday? Check it out at http://www.hannastamps.com/ - I already have a cart full!

Today will be another HOT one in Texas - this 103+ heat is making me grumpy. The only cool place is in the pool - but we have fun there so I shouldn't complain! I'm off to another OB appointment this afternoon - and should get an inducement date!!!
The card I'm sharing today is just one that I LOVE. When I sat down to start coloring this image with my friend, I told her "this one is going to be tough one to color/pick paper for. But her creative visions helped out once again. Don't you love how it came out?! It's very "classic" -
Here's the card, details to follow.
Stamp Sugar Nellie, Sentiment Verve Petals & Stems
Paper: PTI White, Basic Grey (SU), Riding Hood Red (SU), October Afternoon - Tea Towel, Sunday Dishes
Accessories: Lasting Impressions buttons, copics, dimensionals
used an old Bellarific Friday Sketch

I've also gotten my mojo back - I think! Here's a card I made the other night and it is so sweet. Granted, the Sugar Nellie images are works of art to begin with - they soooo capture the sweetness of little girls. And I like color combo I ended up with, just by coloring and picking the paper later!
Sketch used was MFTSC76, an oldie but goodie!

Hanna Stamps! is the 'mommy' to Riley and Sophie Moose, as well as "Hanna" who is just as sweet and sassy as can be (reminding me of my own Hannah). Check them all out at http://www.hannastamps.com/
Here's my card using a never-before-seen Sophie Moose. Since getting this in the mail, I've wanted some "bubbly" of my own, in a nice bubble bath!
It's hard to see but I used Diamond Stickels and Crystal Effects on the bubbles and bath - super shimmery IRL! And my kids' favorite - the little rubber duckies, cut out and popped up on dimensionals! I used Cosmo Cricket's Snorkel paper - and the Cuttlebug embossing folder to keep the "bubbly" feeling alive! And for my ribbon - I just wanted to give it some color to pull it all together and thought the orange/yellow would tie it all together!
So what do you think? Leave me a comment, then head on over to Splitcoast to check out the other entries! All the finalists are so talented so you're in for a treat today! The link to this forum is http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/forums/showthread.php?t=451126
