A little FUN just for me . . .

Hello Friends!
The past month has been a whirlwind blurr for me as many of you know, and even though I've done well with keeping up with all my design team commitments, I hadn't really taken any time to just create something different & fun ...  just for me!  

While talking to BFF Diane (Nellie's Nest) she told me about a challenge she was doing after seeing a card done by another BFF Leslie (Running with Scissors) and I thought I'd join in their fun.  Isn't it awesome how we can share a hobby & make such amazing new friends from all around the world!

The challenge I'm referring to is from the 
and the theme is: 

The Bubble Bath Day challenge is at Day of the Month Card Club.  They're somewhat new, this being their 11th challenge.  Each runs from the 7th till the end of the month, which will work out well for me and I hope to join in again next month.

Here's what I've created to share with you today . . .

I just started going through my stash to see what fit as far as papers & embellishments.  I knew I had this OLD (purchased at Archiver's and we know how long they've been out of business!  lol) Stampendous 'Bubble Day Set' that would work perfectly for my focus image.

After gathering the 'bubble'  background paper, the 'water' design paper, the EK Success 'Bubble' stickers and my sentiment which is from Endless Creations and was die cut using a Tutti Designs Rectangle die set, I then went in search of a SKETCH I could use as my layout.   

I spotted this Sketch #175 over on the Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 Blog via Paper Playful and thought it would work perfectly!  What do you think?

This was so much fun!  Hopefully over the next few weeks I'll take the
advice of the sentiment used on my card!  We all need to do that from time to time!

As always, thanks SO MUCH for taking the time to stop by!
