A Clowns Birthday

Good Morning.  Hope everyone is having a good week.  This weekend Mary, Kristen, Pia and I went to the Heirloom convention.  We had alot of fun.  This is one of the stamps I bought.  I think this clown stamp is just so cute.  I bought it at the Rubbernecker booth.  This is one of the many things I bought at the convention.  I was really good at not impulse buying and I love everything I came home with.

Today is the Going Grey with Scrap Creations challenge.  This weeks theme is Happy Birthday.  We all need Birthday cards.  Right?  All you need to do is is make one using Basic Grey paper and you can join us in the fun. 

The other wonderful challenges this card fits are:

Sketch Saturday - This sketch was perfect for my little clown.

The Corrosive - Die Cuts - I used 2 of my spellbinders dies (flower and oval) for this sketch

Stamp, Scrap & Doodle  - Make your own embellishment - My card needed something so I looked though the challenges to get an idea.  I thought I would try to do this so I took the circle loop, tied ribbon around it and then attached the flower.  I thought it looked too plain so I added white dots to the flower.

By the Cute and Girly - Something Old, New, Borrowed, Blue - You only needed one but I have my DP (old), Stamp(New), Color (Blue), Sketch (Borrowed).

Crafty Angels - Favorite Stamp - Well since this was the 1st stamp I couldn't wait to play with when I got home from the convention I guess this is my favorite from my new favorites!!!

Cupcake Craft - Dazzle us - I have glitter on all the "pom poms" this little guy is wearing!

Pixie Dust Studios - Punch it out - Can I really make a card where I don't punch something?  I assume spellbinders is considered a punch so I used those for the oval and the flower.  I used my EK punch for the corners.

Handful of Stamps - Hats off to you.  - Isn't this clown's hat the cutest!!!

Little Red Wagon - Altered embelleshment - I put dots on my flower because it needed it and I wrapped ribbon around the clip.

Pile it On - Quirky - I think my image is kindof quirky.

Thank you for Stopping by.  Thanks to everyone who leaves me a comment.  I love reading all of them.
