And just for the record, I am now really regretting trying to change that tire. Wow and I regretting it. I have changed many, many tires in the past. What I did not take into consideration was that always before when I changed a tire, I was lifting a deflated tire or one of those dinky spares. My Jeep has a full size inflated tire that weighs a lot more than that little donut tire! Shortly after I started driving, I had a flat tire and got stranded and had a bit of a scare. I ended up having to pay roadside assistance like $40 or so to change the tire and it only took him a matter of minutes. When I got home, I made sure that my dad taught me to change my own tire before I drove again. Have a great day!

Good Sunday afternoon! My card today uses a Changito stamp from Stampendous. I colored the monkeys and grass with Copics and Prismas and then painted the bubbles with Oyster Twinkling H20 paint. I wanted those bubbles to have some of the same qualities of real bubbles. As a child (and as a former preschool teacher!), I was always fascinated with the iridescent colors of bubbles and how the color would change depending on how the light hit them. The yellow background paper was made using a scrap piece of yellow paper and then I used a small round container dipped in CTMH Sunny Yellow ink and randomly stamped those big circles. I was very happy with the way they turned out, I wanted it to look like bubbles had burst on the paper so I didn't want a solid circle and these turned out exactly the way I wanted them to. Don't you just love it when that happens? I embossed the blue strip with a Cuttlebug folder and decided to do with the more square Mosaic folder rather than the one with circles for some visual contrast.
