nat'l bubble wrap appreciation day

yes, that's what my brother e-mailed me this morning ... along with an oh so slightly facetious "do you have a card made for that yet?" question posed to me!

well, it was a challenge, don't you agree? here's a quick one based on Beate's current sketch challenge. I used bubble wrap to ink the background in a few different pink inks.

side note: I recently received my new ATG tape gun wrapped in about 20' of continuous bubble wrap, then shrink-wrapped - no box! I considered that an interesting way to "box" orders! my brother Mark was the recipient of all that bubble wrap ...

and note: are you addicted to popping bubble wrap? try this link for some virtual pops!

stamps: Heidi Swapp love; paper: CTMH pink, white on hand cardstock; ink: ColorBox Burnt Sienna, Rose Coral, Warm Red, StazOn Jet Black; accessories: Prima Got Flowers
