Going on Hiatus

Hello blogging friends. Yes, I'm going on hiatus, so this will be my last post for December.  I'll will be back in January for sure. I've never taken a break from blogging in 2.5 years, it just feels kind of strange.  I'm not going anywhere and all is good. Our year end is Dec 31 where I work which means crunch time is on. Overtime starts today and continues into the month, which means very little time for card making. And with this being a busy month anyways with the Holidays, something just has to give before I get burnt out.  I will continue to check out your blogs and leave comments so you will still hear from me!

As promised yesterday, I have a new Uptown girl image to share.  With 6 birthdays in December this one will end up with one of my friends.  This is Uptown girl Bubbles loves Bubbly! Doesn't she look relaxed?

Bubbles was stamped on bella's bestest paper with black memento ink.  I then coloured her using copics. Tub- R000, R00, R01, pillow: G000, G00, hair: E13, E15, E18, skin: E000, E00, E01, R20.  I trimmed the image down and then sponged some versamagic persimmon around the edges, layer this onto a piece of black c/s then stitched around the edges.  

Designer paper is by Prima  called Rondelle.  I added lots of glitter and some pearls.  See the black flowers along the bottom of the tub - well those are rub-ons.  The tub looked really plain and I was looking for something to spruce it up.  I think the rub-ons worked well.

Well that's it for today.  Like I said I will still be around, I might even post a card or two if I do get a chance to work on any. 

Take care, till next time.......Pauline

Love your Uptown Girls cards. They are my faves from SB. I totally understand your need for a break. Whooda thunk that occasionally we need a break from our hobbies. LOL Hopefully you'll be rejuvenated and refreshed when you return in January. Have a wonderful holiday season and don't work too hard. Hugs!

Oh I'll miss you Pauline but do understand the work thing - it does get in the way, doesn't it?! :)

Your card is so pretty, I love the pearls in the top corner and those rub ons you put on the tub. Hopefully you can relax like your Uptown Girl after a long days work!

See you in January!

Pauline this reminds me of the tub we had in a house we rented in Montreal - it was pink. Everything was pink in that bathroom including the tiles!!
Going to miss your creations this month but enjoy your blogging break.
