Just Clowning Around!

Monday 24 June 2013

Hi everyone!

I hope you're all well.  Back to work this morning after a busy weekend.  I was doing a little bit of cleaning yesterday and while I was dusting in my sitting room a very bright light suddenly shone in through my window - it totally scared the life outta me!  It turns out it was only sun had found a tiny little hole in the clouds to break through and it decided to shine on me!  Just shows you how little the sun comes out here though when it scared me so much!

You're probably wondering why I posting at this time on a Monday morning - and I'm gonna shed a little light on it for you now (do you see what I did there? Lol!)
I've joined another challenge blog design team!!  I was delighted to be asked by the lovely Mari to join the Seems A Little Sketchy design team!  I love working with sketches but don't get to do it very often, so here's my very first post!

This fortnight we are sponsored by the fabulous Sweet 'n' Sassy!

And here's the fab sketch we have to work with:

I turned the sketch clockwise for my card and here it is...

The fabby images were supplied by Sweet 'n' Sassy and I coloured them with the following copics: E21,00,0000,R20,BG13,11,10,R08,05,02,YR09,07,04,Y15,13,11,C7,5,4,BG13,11,10.  The clown was holding a bunch of balloons, but I cut them loose so as he could do a bit of juggling instead!

The papers are My Minds Eye, Sky's The Limit and Up & Away.  The circus posters also came out of the paper pack.

I used the basic sketch on the inside too, along with another Sweet 'n' Sassy image.

So that's my card.  Why don't you "roll up" over to the Seems A Little Sketchy blog and check out what the rest of my new teamies have done!

I'd like to enter my card in the following challenges:

Crafts 4 Eternity; Spots and stripes
Creative Inspirations; for a child
Here Come The Boys; Let's go dotty
My Heart Pieces; Use a digi stamp
My Time To Craft Challenges; Spots and stripes
