Blowing Bubbles...

When I first saw the new Papermania Nostalgia images by John Byars, I thought they were so gorgeous and fell in love with them. But I thought they were just available as decoupage, so that was the end of that, as I don't really use decoupage....I like to to colour the images myself. So you can imagine how thrilled I was to stumble across the stamps online.
I ordered this one called Blowing Bubbles from Cutting Edge Crafts. It was less than the rrp, and free delivery too! It turned up a day later (yesterday), and I inked up this little chap last night. Though I am trying to be good, I couldn't resist and have ordered another 3 images, (kite, rainy day & football) I hope they arrive in the morning!
I stamped him in Memento rich cocoa, and coloured him with Promarkers.
Papers are DCWV - Garden Party
The ticket sentiment was a digi freebie from here.
I also used;
Kraft card,
X cut scallop punch,
crochet flower,

I will enter this into;

My time to craft challenge - angelic

Cute Card Thursday - schools out for summer (my little ones always get through lots of bubble mix in the summer...infact my 2yr old has just had a new bubble blowing water gun lol!)

Well that's all folks!

But before I go I will just tell you what's happening tomorrow. As you may/may not know, I am lucky enough to have been given a place on the Squiggle Stamps Design Team. As a DT member I will be posting on the Squiggles Blog every SATURDAY, and sharing a Squiggle creation with you. Tomorrow I present my first Squiggle creation as a DT member and hope you will join me over on the Squiggles Blog.
Maybe you would be kind enough to leave me a quick comment over there, or even become a follower so you don't miss my postings. At least then I'll know I'm not talking to myself lol! Hope to see you over there!

Thanks for stopping by!

This is lovely - the brown ink adds to the nostalgic feel. I didn't realise that you could get these images in stamps either, they are beautiful.

I love the ribbon and the crochet flower.

Thanks for sharing the ticket freebie.
