Blowing bubbles!

Hello all - and thank you for all your lovely comments after my 'absence'! It's been the usual busy carry-on at ours - I don't think we ever seem to have a quiet week lol!  Our French student left at the weekend - I think they all had a great time here and I know my son and his friends are looking forward to their return leg of the exchange visit when they head to Lyon in March. And then my son has been in London for 2 days this week on an art trip with school, although he's now on the train heading home. And the good news is that my cold is gradually on it's way out - although the bad news is that my husband and son have now got it..... Wish me luck with that one!

Anyway, less waffle!  I settled down to do a little bit of card-making at the weekend and used a gorgeous image from Mo Manning that I'm ashamed to say I've had for a while and not coloured (hangs head in shame....)

I've coloured the image with copics and graphit pens, with a touch of pencil.  I did add some glossy accents to the bubbles but it never seems to show up on my pics (probably due to dodgy photography skills!)

The sentiment stamp & die are from Whimsy, papers from LOTV and a DooHickey die cut fence together with a few buttons from stash.
He's such a cute little chap! 

I hope that you enjoy the rest of your week - and find some crafting time too! 
Back soon,
