Bubble Bath Happy Hopper :-)

Hi all :-) I am back from a fabulous trip to the USA ! I met Heidi, Steph, and Sarah from Simon Says Stamp in NYC and had a brilliant time. From there we went to Columbus and got busy preparing for the fabulous CREATE event !! What a brilliant time everyone had !! If you would like to see some photo's and a video of the event CLICK HERE :-)

I am here with my first card made since I returned, I always feel more comfortable making a House Mouse or friends card when feeling a tad rusty :-)

This is a reminder for the House Mouse and Friends Challenge, you still have a few days left to enter :-)

This is an older wood version Bubble Bath stamp but it is now available in cling, the only difference is that the bunny now points in the opposite direction.

I used Simon's Exclusive inks to create the background then used a Falling Snowflake stencil and some Pearlescent Embossing Paste for the 'bubbles'. Did you spot the Bubbles Die !! how FAB is that !! :-) I will link everything I used at the bottom of this post :-)

I have been sleeping quite a lot since I got back ,, have to drag myself out of bed !! I will get around to see you all asap,,, :-)

will leave you with a couple of photo's :-)

Tim and Mario are lovely and kindly let me take this photo ,,, thought it might make me buddy Kath a tad envious :-)

Heidi, Me, Sarah and Steph on a NYC  Mixology tour :-)
