TLT - Tam's Challenge - Song Title

Woo hoo everybody!!! It's TLT...Again! How does it come around so fast??? It must be because we're so busy running around getting ready for Christmas that it's here before we know it.

I loved this challenge by the one...the only...the gorgeous Tams. When Lisa asked us to pick our challenges a couple of months ago Tams chose Song Title. I had a quick squiz through my stamps and when my eyes fell on Bathtub Nikki there was only one song for it....but I'm not going to tell you lol. I'll let you have a guess and you can see what it is at the end of the post. Leave a comment and let me know if you got it right :-D There's no prize...just a little fun.

When I started my card the other day I had it in my head to look one way and by the time I finished, it looked nothing like it lol. But I must say I am ever so happy with the way it turned out. I could even have used it in Gaelle's Pearl challenge the other week. Anywho have a look and see what you think....

Ta dah! I wanted to use any colour other than pink as I think that would have been the obvious choice and Anita made a Bathtub Nikki card way back and there's no way mine would have come up to scratch so I went for turquoise and well turquoise lol. I've had this DCWV Linen Closet pad for ages and haven't used it nearly enough. The colours are so rich and luxurious and full of gorjossity :-D I used my EK Success bubble border can just make it out to the left...perfect for the theme. In my not so great wisdom and after my last success I decided to try and sew around the circle. It seemed to be taking ages when I realised I was using stitch size A...I hadn't changed the stitch size back to C so I had to go around the whole circle and it took FOR-EVAH! I think I must have blinked a couple of times (I try not to when I do the circles...I know I know) cuz I went a bit wonky a couple of times but I thought I'd point it out so you don't think I think it's perfect lol. Whadya thunk of my bow? And the pearls  bubbles ...absolutely bubblicious!

You can't tell but there's GA on the bubbles and the rim of Nikki's shower cap and GD on the cherries, sponge and Buttercup's bow

I wish I was in a bath right now {sigh}


And since it's all the craze and Mary J started it, I finished off the inside :-D

Now you probably wish I would just finish yakking about my card and announce who has won my Christmas gift from last weeks blog hop right?  Ok....thanks to the glass bowl and one son's hand the winner is.......

Woo hoo...Congratulations! Email me with your details at and I'll get your gorgeous crystals and surprise off to you :-D

You can check out all the winners on the Challenge Blog...who knows, it could be you!

Unfortunately this is our GD Jovita's last week with us as this is our last challenge until January 4 2011. Jovita has gifted us with her beautiful LCI cards this month and we've loved having her. Make sure you continue to visit Jovita's blog and leave her some Ladybug Love :-D

Since this is our last challenge for a couple of weeks, it gives you plenty of time to enter your Song Title card/project.

Oh and don't forget to check out Lisa's Blogaversary candy...there are two candy prizes on offer and she's promised no peel offs (unless I've made that up!)

Right...I'm off to have a look at everyone's Song Title woa (works of art). Hope you like Bathtub Nikki and enjoy listening to a snippet of Don Ho singing Tiny Bubbles.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by :-D

Catch ya later x

I love this card, the ribbon and pearls are just gorgeous and that is definitely one of my favourite stamps.

Well, Kerry, I think your turquoise card far exceeds my pink card. This is absolutely gorgeous. Your coloring is flabby and I love those Linen Closet papers...took me forever to find them and of course now I'm hoarding them lol! I think I need to purchase that border punch too. The pearls are perfect little bubbles and that ribbon and bow are yummy.

Rusty said...
