Pure Fun

Good morning all! It's still raining, and they are calling for the temperature to drop tomorrow night so we may end up with some snow! I do not want ice or icy roads, but some snow would be nice.

Before I get to today's card I wanted to tell you about a new tutorial that's been added to Squigglefly's tutorial section. What? You didn't know about the tutorials on Squigglefly? Well, HERE is where they are. They are a great resource for people who use digital images, and our very own Charlene has just finished a great one on using Serif Page Plus! It's wonderfully done and is downloadable in PDF format. You can see her tutorial HERE.

Now today's card wasn't done for any challenges or anything. It was just done for pure fun!

I love this image called A Bit Too Big by Monica Estill! I think Monica has a great imagination! I mean who thinks to draw an elephant bathing in a tea cup or ladybugs riding a bicycle built for two?

Anyway, I used Copic markers to color this and used stickles on the soap suds.  The stitching on the left of the card is rub ons.  He may be a bit too big for the teacup, but he's still managing to enjoy his bath!  And the shower cap kills me - I mean what in the world is he protecting?  LOL!  It just tickles me and I hope it tickles the person I send this to!

There's still time to play in Squigglefly's challenge - go follow the recipe!
Enjoy your day, and thanks for looking!
