Happiness is a long, hot, bubble bath.

Here's a card I made for my BFF.
She has a chronic illness that she refuses to give in to, so she runs on pure adrenaline most of the time. It means that when she crashes, she usually ends up with a few days in hospital.
I wanted to remind her to chill out, relax and take care of herself.


I started with the bubble bath image from Sassy Studio designs. It's actually a full image of a lady in the bath, but I cropped it down and then paper pieced the bath and used stickles glitter for the bubbles.
The chandelier, was a free digi from Shery K Designs.

I couldn't find the right shade of gold ribbon in my stash, so I cut some little ribbon style pieces from the DP and finished off with the card candy.
DP is My Mind's Eye, True Blue.

Make it Monday - Linky Party
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes (use metal as an optional extra)
Allsorts - Free & Easy
Fab 'n' Funky - Friendship.   Hope this qualifies, but I know I haven't added a
'friend' sentiment anywhere, so just delete it, if it doesn't. No worries!
