Sister's Birthday Card/Science Centre

Good Morning!! Well I have had the last week off of work but unfortunately I have been sick most of the time. I came down with a sore throat and sinus pain but I believe I am at the tail end of it. I made the best of our holidays and I still have three days left until we start babysitting again!! While on holidays the baby in the family celebrated her 19th birthday!! Since I have given her the card I can now post it.

What I Used:
My Pink Stamper : Sweetest Cupcake
Martha Stewart Punch: Classic Butterfly
Spellbinders Nestabilities: Labels eight
Ek Success Corner Rounder
Memento Ink: Tuxedo Black
Stickles: Diamonds

I used two of my sister's favourite things on this card, purple and butterflies! we spent her birthday at the Ontario Science Centre and learned some really cool things especially cool ways to use bubbles.

Who knew that all you needed was water, dish soap, glycerin and your hands to make bubbles!! Below is the recipe to make these yourself.

I have found a YouTube Video that show how to do it (note he just uses water and dish soap in the video)

Here is another link that will shows you how to do the second picture

Bubble Blowing Tricks

We are going to try this with the daycare kids this coming week!!

On a funny note, we asked my daughter what her favourite part of the Science Centre was and this was her response "the bathroom". One of the bathrooms had two toilets, an adult size and a little kiddy one, as well as a small sink and a small mirror. My daughter thought this was the greatest thing!! Pay all that money and the highlight for her was the bathroom!! LOL

Have A Great Day!!

God Bless!
