Bubble over with fun

Hey there!

Well I'm happy to report that I was able to cross off at least half of the stuff on my to-do list yesterday. It helped that I didn't allow myself to turn the laptop back on 'til late afternoon, LOL! So I'm actually starting this week off in a pretty good place. It's going to be another long Monday but I'm looking forward to tonight, so it's all good. :)

Ya know how I've been trying to ink up neglected stamps lately? Well I'm proud to say that this little Pure Innocence Blowing Bubbles cutie had a pretty quick turn around because I just got her in the mail on Thursday, so she didn't have to sit and wait for ages. At first I was going to pair her with the soft Neapolitan papers, which I still think would look pretty, but I decided to give those papers a break and play with some brighter colors instead. I love the dark denim from the On the Bright Side paper pad even if it does give this card more of a summer feel rather than spring. Nothing wrong with a little bit of summer day dreaming (especially since it tried to snow again yesterday).
I paper pieced her outfit and just added some shading to give it some depth. Something about this little gal was calling out for freckles too, so I couldn't resist adding some across her cute face. Then I had fun splattering on those blue droplets in the background from a bottle of Sprinklers. Don't they kind of look like bubbles floating all around her?

Alrighty, time for me to scoot. Thanks for stopping by today!

She is as cute as can be with her paper pieced clothing especially the demin skirt. The freckles are a nice touch as well. And of course the paper is gorgeous - one can never go wrong with MME!
