Bath Time for Kids

Bathtime is one of my favourite childhood memories and I remember being dried and dressed in front of the heater in winter, that is until all of a sudden… I was too old for that! I used a Dearie Dolls digi called Bath Time . I had fun using some new dies I purchased at the last Craft Fair in Brisbane. I added the waves because when kids and baths get together it always spells… tidal wave…so I added the waves to simulate that for a bit of fun. I also added wiggly eyes to the top of the towel…my kids loved these types of towels!!! Actually one of my kids is a bit old for all that now, he’s 16 and has his Learners Permit to driv and over 6ft tall …. but making this card was like making a memory and I had fun in the process! I made my own flowers so it colour matched exactly to my card. I just bought my first bit of Kraft cardstock and I’m loving it…why didn’t I get more! It’s hard to see but I tucked a tiny bit of lace on the left hand side under the striped paper and this reminds me of my Mum’s bathroom… where she did that folk art about 20 ago and everything had a bit of lace added to it!!!I distressed the edges of my layers to create that fluffy towel feeling.

Trish this is such a fun card, the tidal wave in the bath was always a favourite of mine, although mum was always a bit annoyed when the water in the bath ended up on the floor! lol
