Happy Bubbles

Hi Everyone, it's a rainy day here so I've snuck into my craft room.  Do you think they'll notice?

Anyway a quick post whilst I've got peace.

This card was one of my earlier ideas for Less is More themed week of circles.  I had a play originally using all blues which made it look like soapy bubbles.  When I showed it to my son he suggested using bright colours and here's the result.  With the bright colours I think the bubbles look happy hence my title for the post.

Here's how I made it -

The card base is Real Red.  I stamped "Happy Everything to You" from On a Pedestal, in Night of Navy onto Whisper White card.  I masked the sentiment  and stamped the bubbles, one of the many stamps in the Circle Circus stamp set,  in Real Red and Old Olive.

You can order any of the supplies required to make this card from myself by contacting me on  I'd be happy to help.

I've posted a couple of photos from yesterday.  We took my Aunt's dog, Teddy (She's on holiday and we are doggy sitting) up Dunnydeer which is an old hill fort.  It's an easy walk but a bit of a puff climbing the hill. However not for Teddy - he climbed 3 hills to our 1 as he raced ahead and then ran back as if to say "Come on, What's keeping you?"  Of course the children faired better and hubby and I put our tardiness down to stopping frequently to admire the view!!

Love these happy bubbles and I think it was a great idea to add a touch of green to the red.
Love the pic of Teddy, sounds like he's having a great holiday.
