40 Years a Child?

Hello my dears out there in the digital world!  Happy New Year!  I hope 2014 was good to you - and if not I pray that 2015 is so much better.  May it be blessed and filled with love and happiness!
I have not posted in a while.  To be honest, I had lost my creative mojo.  I just didn't really have it in me to do anything creatively.  I tried.  I sat down at my desk and tried to look at blogs and see if it gave me some inspiration.  Nothing.
So I read.  Lots. of. books.  Seriously.  Lots.  There is an app called Overdrive.  I was able to download ebooks from my local library.  Which I did.  A lot.  It was awesome getting into some good mindless stories, some mysteries and even some historical fiction.  Some of them even made me tear up.  I did miss crafting though.  
I figured it was the New Year and I AM supposed to be part of the Wags 'n Whiskers Design Team.  I mean, mojo IS required for that.  So I found some.  
And speaking of DT - how about a challenge!  The new one on the Wags 'n Whiskers blog is:
Make sure you read the challenge rules that are posted at the
top of the Wags 'n Whiskers blog.

Here is my card:
 I am using the stamp Bubble Fun.  She looks like she is having fun.  She is on watercolor paper and colored with Twinkling H2Os.  
 Other card details:
Solid Papers used: SU Pacific Point; SU Daffodil Delight
DP: K & Company
Ribbon: Stash
Butterfly: I made it using Mod Podge Mod Melts.  I then painted it with blue acrylic and added some red glitter.  Simple little embellishment.
The blue bubble embellishment is something new I found at AC Moore.  They are from Queen & Co.   They had all kinds of colors.   You can use them as bubbles or water drops.  I like the way it looks. 
The sentiment is perfect and true.  It is from the lovely Ginger from Ginger's House.  
Great word art.  Definitely check her out. 
Thanks for looking!
