Relaxing in the tub

Okay, i 've been wanting to use this stamp since i purchased it recently and i thought perfect...it fits this TGF challenge to a "T"...

A bit about the bathtub...i love the look of a clawfoot bathtub, but i discovered once i got married that i didn't like taking baths.
I couldn't ever put my finger on why...and now i know..i got too cold..and i couldn't ever get the temp right...just couldn't relax...like everyone else seems to do...  Also, as i was growing up we only took baths, even though our 50's home had a shower head we were not allowed to use it...because the walls around the tub were plaster walls...it even had a chair rail in the tub.  Well, as you know if you take a shower and the walls are plaster...the walls will crumble and not only that it will leak to the finished basement...so it was definitely not allowed.  As i got older my dad built a shower/bath in the basement/laundry room...it was really nice.  And in the last 5 yrs he has tiled around the bathtub...and we can now use the shower when we visit..oh, yeah...they still live in the same house..it's almost 60 yrs old.

Here is my card...i paper pieced the tub...and i think it's a lovely tub...i'd actually like it..well to look at. LOL

I am also using the Tuesday Morning Sketch for this card...Still plenty of time to play along with this sketch challenge!

Such a wonderful story Bonnie! I love to hear about the wonderful details of your life! I used to love baths, but now I just never seem to have time to do it....someone always needs to use the bathroom, and after two or three interruptions, the relaxation factor is well....gone!
This is a wonderful bubbly tub and that die cut behind is just perfect!
