I can't believe how fast time goes and how late in the day it already is. I really wanted to complete several cards today but time is running away from me. The card I am sharing tonight is called Rub a Dub Dub Bird Bath. My friend Michelle, at Mommytime, sent me this image in a R.A.K. I absolutely love High Hopes stamps. THANKS MICHELLE!! I have admired the magnificent creations of Michelle, a High Hopes Diva team member, using these stamps for a long time. She is incredibly talented and does outstanding coloring!!! If you have not visited her blog, you really should!! Just click HERE.

When I made this card, I had three challenges in mind, Katharina's sketch challenge #17, Spiltcoast's Color challegne 203 (Baja Breeze, Pacific Point, and Garden Green), and today's OCCC challenge hosted by Laurie, to use a tag on your card. Thanks Laurie!! I had so much fun coloring this image with prisma color pencils. I layered it to make it 3d. The soap suds are made using liquid applique and stickles. I love the glitz and how they look so much like real bubbles and suds. I used a piece of terry cloth to make the towel. This yummy designer paper is new from K&Co. It is called Sue Sera Lera. It has many outstanding papers with bright colors!! I really loved Katharina's sketch and will definitely use it again!! I just turned it on its side.
