Fun Is Just a Tub of Bubbles

Most of you all have probably heard the saying, song, or whatever, "Life is just a bowl of cherries".  This song has been playing in my head the whole time I was putting this card together and I don't even know any other words to it....Hence, the cherry charm.  I changed the words to "Fun is just a tub of bubbles" to go with the image for a birthday that's coming up in January. 

I've had this Elisabeth Bell image ever since it came out and had it colored for ages.  Thought it would fit with a couple of challenges I wanted to play in, and they are:
Bells 'n Whistles - Warm Earth Colors
Elphine House - Around We Go (circles)

So meet "Duckie" by Elisabeth.  You can get him HERE.  Duckie is colored with Copics.  The DP is a combination of SU, Basic Grey, and Bo Bunny.  The sentiment is computer generated and I used SB circle and scalloped circle dies.  Ribbon is from stash.

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope to see you again soon.
"Love & Hugs" Carol

Carol the image is adorable, reminds me of when my boys were little and we were up at the cottage, that's sort of how they took their baths.

Thank you Carol for your wonderful support since losing our grandson. You have made a huge difference in my life and I am grateful our paths crossed. Love ... Carole

Elise said...

Happy New year Carol!!!!!
I totally agree 100% that fun is just a tub of bubbles. One of my favorite past times is tubby time reading a good book. Sometimes I get out my ducky and tug boat like this little cutie lol
Awesome card sweetie!

This card just gave me the giggles and reminds me of when my son was a toddler. He played with his bath todays just the same way this little guy does (making eye contact with the object and creating an action-oriented sound). It just makes me happy to look at it.
