A beautiful bubbly day!


The weather is just absolutely beautiful here today. Tom was home from work so Beckett and him did some quality bonding while Annabelle was at school and I was cleaning the kitchen floor. They rode bikes, went to the park and blew bubbles....lots and lots of bubbles. Kids nowadays have it so easy. You just put batteries in this little machine, add bubble solution and you get a GAZILLION bubbles. No dipping a stick in a bottle and trying to blow a bubble just to have it pop in your face. No sticky, slimy stick to carry around dripping bubbles everywhere. Just batteries and bubbles. Only bad thing about the bubble machine is that it really eats up that bubble solution fast! Beckett had a blast trying to catch and pop them all in this crazy wind. They kept changing directions. He would run into the yard to get them just in time for the wind to change direction and send them flying up the street. They did save some bubble solution for later since Annabelle wasn't home to partake in the bubble popping festivities so hopefully we can get some more pictures later tonight.

This is my last Penny Black cat card that I have to share with you this week. Once again the card is HUGE (I can't actually remember but it is something like 5 x 6). Just a basic card, nothing too fancy. The cardstock is SU! black, SU! Purely Pomegranate (I think that is what it is called), and GP white. The dp is SU!. Image is colored with gamsol and prismacolor pencils and just for a change of pace, *wink*, I added a little glitter. The sentiment is from the Stampendous clear Changito Monkey set.
I hope everyone is having a wonderful Wednesday! Thanks again for taking the time to stop by!

I want to come and play with the bubbles too. It looks like he had a great time.

I couldn't see the whole card (just the top part). Might be my computer though.

OK.. I clicked on the card and was able to see it. Then it popped up on my screen when I went back into the blog - yes it was my computer.

I love the lazy cat. Too cute.
