HM Challenge #38... A Happy Hopper in the Tub!

Hello everyone!

Today I'm just playing for the fun of it! A group of friends on SCS have a weekly challenge we do together and last Friday we were to case our sweet friend and sister in Christ, Pat Smethers. She had sent me a card with a cute HM image of a Happy Hopper taking a soak in an old barrell. Her colors were like this and she has the cutest way of coloring these little critters. I tried to case her overall style.

I also used the HM Sketch Challenge #38 for my layout. I used Bazzill Bling and Textured CS, and EK Success DP, which I ran through the Cuttlebug with the bubbles embossing folder. I used Copics to color my image. I used the following colors: W1, E00, E53, R11, RV32, C5 and Blender 0. I also used a tiny leaf image, a flower image, and a tiny dragonfly image from the Rubber Stamp Tapestry Co. and cut a little See D's dots stamp in half to give it a better shape to dot around the image. I added Stickles to all the bubbles and the flower centers, and I painted Shimmerz Candle Light onto the dragonfly wings. I punched the lower edge with my Martha Steward little hearts border punch. The ovals are cut with the small classic Nesties, and the bling was the finishing touch.

This is headed out to my sweet friend with a bunch of images including lots of Scriptures, because she loves Jesus too!

Thanks for stopping by my blog! I'd love to have you say hello while you're here!

I really love this card, Grace. I love the way you put the tub in a field of flowers. I have a few of these images and If you don't mind I am going to do that. Love it.

Reminds me of those commercials of the people taking a bath out of doors . . . except your field of flowers beats the background in those! :) And I like the cuttlebugged background behind, matches the image nicely.
