Calgon...take me away!!

How many of you remember that TV commercial for Calgon bubble bath? Well...when I saw this adorable new "In the bath" image by our very own uber talented Mo Manning, the first thing that came to mind was ..."Calgon, take me away." hehehehe!!

Well...once I got my new digi image from Mo's Digi Store, I scrounged around in my stash and found some fun DPs that seemed perfect for this darling image...AND just right for this week's new challenge at Mo's Challenge Blog!! Our sweet friend and DT sistah Debbie is our hostess again this week and she's chosen the theme...

"Feeling Blue"

Maybe Deb's blue because her summer vacay from work is coming to an end...or maybe she thinks about blue all the time because she has a houseful of boys!! Well, whatever the reason...Debbie wants blue...so blue it is! And here's my card....


And a slightly different view...


My "card recipe"...
Cardstock: Whisper White & Marina Mist (Stampin' Up)
DPs, pearls, ribbon: My stash
Bubbles border punch: MS
Scroll dies: Sizzix
Stickles
Flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts
Sentiment: SU

Here are the Copics used to color this cutie patootie...
E21, 00, 000, 0000: Skin
R20: Cheeks
E53, 51, 50, 13, Y21: Hair
B91, 000, 0000: Tub
R85, 83, 81, RV10L Soap & washcloth
E53, 51, 50, 23, 21, 000: Bear
C1, 0, 00: Shadows
B000, 0000: Water

And a peek at the inside...


And, yep, you guessed it...the "artsy fartsy" view...


OK...time to pop on over to Mo's Challenge Blog and take a look at my DT sistahs' creations!! Then get crackin' on your own BLUE project!! Remember, you must use at least one Mo Manning image to qualify for this week's random drawing!!

Thanks so much for stopping by...and for your kind comments that make me smile all over my face!! Have fun crafting, my lovelies! I'll see you again soon! Hugs....

By the way I had to read the Calgon bubblebath reference twice - in the UK we have a product called Calgon but its used to remove limescale build up in washing machines!!!! LOL

Hey sweetie! I'm having some mad weeks right now as my little one is starting kindergarten next week, our house is upside down as I'm doing some room refurbishing and redecoration these days- can't find anything anymore. So please girls, bear with me...lol:)
Now on to your card... I tell you again... when it comes to the cutest card on the block, well, dear, your the master. No idea why, but I can't create something as sweet as this. This image is fabulous and all the ribbons and girly stuff just make it the sweetest ever. Love it!
