Spring Bathtime

It has been so long since I have posted a card. This was suppose to be a easy school vacation week with lots of time to play, but I found myself busy with everything but stamping! I finally found time to color and create this weekend. I am posting this late because I couldn't miss the hockey game between the USA and Canada, our house lives and breathes hockey!

I also have a thank you give to my sister Peggy for giving me this so cute digi stamp from Sew Many Stamps and a special thank you to the lovely ladies at Sew Many Challenges for letting Peggy share this digi that she won from them with me. So this is my heartfelt thanks to you for being so nice.

I wanted this card to be bright and sparkly so I used DP that was glittered and all the water has Crystal Effects on it, it is hard to see in the photo. I used my cloudmaker on the back round because I wanted the image to stand out and I created the saying on the computer so it would match the image! I made matching dew drops by coloring clear ones with my Copics, it works great!

I found some wonderful challenges that this card fits so here they are

Sew Many Challenges Wk #5-Their challenge this week is a fun sketch
Crafty Cardmakers Challenge 14-The Challenge this week is to use a digital image on your card. My image is from Sew Many Cards, it is so cute don't you think?
Lots To Do wk #7-This fun challenge is to use a machine, I use my Cuttlebug to make the circles and the embossed bubbles.
Lexi's Creations Challenge 7-This challenge was great because you need to make your creation spotted or striped, I did both because I love both dotted things and all kinds of stripes!
Fab n' Funky Challenge #11-"Childish", the challenge fit perfectly with my card because you needed a card for a baby or child.
Spoonful of Sugar Challenge #91-Spring Is In The Air is the challenge and boy am I ready for Spring and so is this little duck!
Little Red Wagon Challenge #16-The challenge is to use ribbon, I love polka dot ribbon so it was the first ribbon I reached for when I made this card!
Stamp Something Challenge-Touch of Spring is the challenge and I am so happy to finally be making "Spring" cards!
The Pink Elephant Challenge #54-This challenge is a recipe challenge, the recipe is easy use ribbon! Now that is fun and easy.
