Just Cause...

I love bubbs. The squish bottom bubbs have been a favorite of mine for a long while. I owe a lot of my intial approach on these to a couple of friends of mine, Cowboy and Eusheen. Through watching and some hands on experience I learned a new approach to the squish tech almost 3 years ago. I've been so busy lately and feeling very under the weather that I had to bust out somthing out that was different than sculpture. Thanks for looking. Thanx to worm for the extra hands.
