It's All About the Water! - BBTB2 Challenge

Hello my crafty friends, here we are at Monday again. I swear this summer is flying by way to fast! It is chemo week and tomorrow we will see how hubby does with the meds he is to take tonight and in the morning and if they work for controlling any allergic reactions. Keeping my fingers crossed! 

As you know if it is Monday, then it is a brand new challenge over at BBTB2. This week our sweet and talented Sharon has given us the challenge to jump into the water! Our challenge and yours is to make a project using water as most of us love to lounge by the pool, go to the ocean and lounge on the beach, or lake. Water parks are very popular as well in the summer, so you can go in many directions with this water challenge. I didn't know what I wanted to do for this challenge, I guess I had to many options. lol I was going to scrap my Niagara Falls pictures from when we went to Iowa, but my printer ink won't be here until today, so I decided not to go with that. After searching Pinterest for inspiration I finally went with today's card.  Now it is your turn, link up with BBTB2 with your water project. Can't wait to see what you come up with!

As always thank you for taking time out of your busy schedule to stop by and visit me. Your comment always bring sunshine to my day!! Crafty hugs, Brenda

Perfectly cool scene through this cute porthole. Love the dolphin frolicking in the waves, and you did a terrific 'spatter' on the white stitched mat. Just a really fun & clever composition scene. Spot on with the background paper too, and I think you've aced this challenge just beautifully. Praying that the week goes very well. TFS & Hugs. MM

Love Love Love your card this week. I have to make this one. Beautiful work, and I see you did a lot of background work and shading. Don't you wish you were really on a ship looking out at a porthole watching the dolphins go by?

Awesome little scene through the porthole, Brenda, the blue splatters and the stripes adds even more of the ocean feeling. I hope you're hubby is keeping well.

Love the porthole so fun

Brenda in IN said...

Oh Brenda, this is a great card. I love looking through the porthole to watch dolphins. The background is perfect for this image too. I hope hubby got along okay and the pills worked so he didn't have any kind of reaction. It is so hot here today and we've had so many storms. I just stay in and keep out of the rain and heat. We've gone from cool weather to extreme heat in just a few days. This heat is dangerous. Hope you are having nicer weather and can get out and enjoy summer.

I hope your husband's treatment went well.

Came by to say Hi and realized I spelled your name wrong up above sorry, sometimes the fingers don't move from the keys as quickly as the brain. I hope all is well for you this week.

I love it! You have been one busy bee Brenda, love those inky splashes on the top panel and the stamped panel behind it. The cabin port hole is wonderful with that super cute dolphin and waves. So sorry I have not been around in a while, usual issues. I hope you and your lovely OH are keeping well and are happy huni Karen xx
