Bathtime Fabric


I found some more fabric called bath time again by Loralie. Go to labels, fabric cards to see how I prepare the fabric for my cards. For this one I ran a piece of vellum through the cuttlebug using the tiny bubbles folder, it came out all frosted on the reverse side which I loved, so this was the side I used for the card. The sentiment is by MFT stamps (time for the bubbly set). I added a few rain drops and a couple of gems.
Yesterday we watched as the last space shuttle streaked across the sky, we have seen a few shuttles since we have been here, the most spectacular being a night time launch a couple of years ago. I was once with my friend Barbara by the pool here as we watched the shuttle on it's journey into space, Barbara and I whooped, clapped and hollered and all the Americans watched us in amazement. What a fantastic feat the space programme is, not just for America, but for mankind.

Enfys I love your creations! I aree with you about the space program. I live in SC not far from the beach, I took my children to watch one of the first night launches. My sons were tweens then. There were many people with telescopes set up. My youngest boy ran from person,to person, badgering them to let him look. He was such a sweetie, they just couldn't refuse! The only problem, no camera! Silly me! But it's a great memory.

Jules said...

You really do have some great images - and a great imagination too!

Love Jules xx

Just love what you are doing with Loralie, you have breathed new life into her creations. Tom and I also tried to see the shuttle but clouds were too thick. Every American should read your post. It seems we can forget what a great country this is.
