Inspired to Be a Clown!


A fun website, Cox + Cox, from Stephanie today for the Inspiration Challenge over on Split Coast.


I was inspired by these colorful paperchains and balloons to use some circus themed chipboard pieces I recently purchased to create my fun clown card.

I cut my background patterened paper with an inverted scallop square nestability then just attached the fun chipboard pieces!

An easy peasy CAS card!   This would work great for a birthday card or a 'cheer up' card don't you think?

I have had a terrible cold for two weeks now (settled in my chest with a hacking cough!) and haven't been able to stamp as much as I wanted to -  so I didn't get to the Waltzingmouse Saturday Sketch -  but I hope you'll check it out and maybe make a card using it this week!

Also wanted to let you know I'll be previewing some fun new stamps from Rubbernecker on Sunday and a DT blog hop on Tuesday for the new release -  so hope you'll stop by again for that! 

It's supposed to be 60 today in MA (whoo hoo!!)  so I hope to get out and breathe some fresh air today and maybe clean up the garden a little while I'm at it!

Stamps: none
Paper: white - PTI, DP - October Afternoon/Modern Homemaker 6 x 6 pad
Ink: none
Accessories: inverted scallop square die - Nestability, chipboard stickers - Recollections/Michaels
