CAS Birthday Clown

I have a co-worker with a birthday coming up who let it slip that she was afraid of clowns right before Halloween last year...well, I had a clown costume I had made many years ago that was very similar to this little clown image with the big ruffled I couldn't resist using this image for her birthday card.  The background paper looks a little more yellow than orange, but it's just the photo...

Thanks for stopping by!

Sweet Birthday

Papercraft Star #158 has some great summertime inspiration:

I bought the watermelon DSP some time ago but never found a chance to use it...perfect for this fun challenge.

Simon Says Triangles

Two more challenges: Simon Says Stamp-Wednesday Challenge - Triangles

And another one for: A Blog Named Hero - Recycle, Reuse, Recycle - that very pretty ribbon actually came from a shirt I purchased know, the straps they use to keep the shirt from falling off  the hanger...I loved the color and couldn't bring myself to throw it away!

I was also thinking of submitting to the Operation Write Home-Our Daily Bread Monthly Challenge to use Green, Brown, and the end I thought the paper I chose had a few too many extra colors...back to the drawing board for this one!

Anything goes, Friend!

A couple of cute neighbor kids brought over some cherries and some brownies recently, with an adorable handwritten I wanted to give them a card that a kid would enjoy...what do you think?  I added a big pack of gummy worms and left it on their porch.

Happy Cat

My son has a cat he adores...but he's the only one, even his wife doesn't like his cat!  This cat is as happy as can be when he can bring birds home, so I thought this combination of stamps was a fun birthday card for my son and also fit in with the challenge over at Papercraft Star Challenge 155.

Some ideas for you ...

Conical shapes

And the challenge over at Simon Says Stamp this week is 'Anything Goes'...
