Hippo Bathtime!!







Talk about last minute.com - I am that woman!! I made this easel card this afternoon after trying all week to find some craft time!! The stamp is one I bought a while ago because it made me laugh, coloured with promarkers and then added glossy accents and glamour dust for the bubbles. The easel card is cut out using scalloped nesties, I got the idea from this tutorial at In2crafting. I couldn't find any suitable papers in my stash so I decided to use inked up cuttlebug folders to make some. The bubbles paper is made using the tiny bubbles folder and the bottom paper was made using the caramelo folder, I think the flowers match those on the bath quite nicely.
I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Secret crafter Saturday: No Patterned paper
A spoonful of sugar: Cute and girly
I am also going to enter this card into the make someone smile / cheer them up challenge at Stampin for the weekend. The second part of the challenge (optional) is to post a card to a child on Postpals. Post Pals is an organisation that was set up to create smiles for children who suffer from life threatening and long term illnesses:
" We ask people to log on to send the children featured on the website ‘happy post’. When a child is very ill, often a visit from the postman can make their day. A cheery card or letter can make them feel less alone and bring welcome distraction from what they go through each day."
I am going to send this card to Alice P who is battling Hodgkin's lymphoma, you can read her story here. I hope she likes it as she says she likes all things girly and bath bubbles!!!
