Rubber Ducky, You're the One...


(:"Rubber Ducky you're the one...You make bath time lots of fun":)

Do you remember that song? I do, and absolutely loved when Ernie sang it on Sesame Street...and yes, I was raised on "The Street"!!! I still find myself singing songs from that awesome television show:) I understand all about fitness and health, but it still pains me to know Cookie Monster in all his original glory is no more:( In all honesty, he made me eat less cookies. Yep...true story...my mom told me if I ate too many cookies, I would grow blue fur and have googly eyes...just like Cookie Monster. LOL! No blue fur and wonky eyes for me, thank you!!! Then again, we didn't have much junk food in our house, but we had loads of fruits and veggies. I suppose it all boils down to  how we're raised.

Okay, enough about my childhood...today's card features one of the adorable NEW stamps from The Peekers 2 Collection by Elisabeth Bell for SCACD. This sweetie is called "Bubble Bath Peeker", and I think she is DARLING!!!! Honestly, I think the whole dang Peeker Collection (both ONE and TWO) are TOO CUTE for words!!!!! I colored this cutie with Prismacolor markers, and all the bubbles got a healthy coating of DecoArt Ultra Fine Glitter Paint in Ice Crystal for a bit of sparkly. The card stock is from Papertrey, and the patterned paper is from the gorgeous and fun Gertie paper pad by My Mind's Eye...which is currently on sale at SCACD along with a boatload of other beautiful paper pads (you can find all these lovelies HERE). The card is super simple, but I haven't had any crafty time in over a month and just HAD to play make a card before I lost my mind!:o} I'm sure some of you can relate:o) Right?


Oh! And speaking of paper pads...Susana has recently added 18...yes, you heard me right...18 beautiful, new My Mind's Eye paper pads to the shop. You can find them all HERE; and if you need to get a head start on your upcoming holiday projects, you can find the new, holiday-themed papers HERE. And have you seen the gorgeous Authentique paper pads? If not, here's a peek at a few of my favorites:

Authentique ~ Journey


Authentique ~ Uncommon
Authentique ~ Wonder
Can you tell my absolute weakness is PRETTY PAPERS?!?! ACK!!! Will I ever have enough?!? NEVAH!!!! Unfortunately, my pocketbook took a healthy beating last month...so crafty goodness must wait. Wahhhhhh...sniffle...sniffle. I'll just live vicariously through all of you who get some of these beauties:o) Well, I am outta here...gonna hang with the hubby for a bit...I feel a snuggling coming on;o) 
Have a WONDERFUL weekend!!!! 
Thanks bunches for popping by:o)

Blessings and Hugs!!!
Carolyn

I am playing along with the following inspirational challenges:
