Belles 'n Whistles - Anything but Winter Challenge

 Happy Monday....  I hope you have all had a wonderful weekend, filled with lots of time for crafting.  =)  It's time for another challenge over on the Belles 'n Whistles Challenge Blog.  This week we would like to see "Anything but Winter"....  Bring on those Spring and Summer colors, or your birthday cards, thank-you's, get well, or otherwise, as long as it's NOT WINTER related....

I decided to create something that makes me think of the fun of Summer....  A Circus, who doesn't love going to a circus?  This adorable little girl is the cutest clown I've ever seen.


I actually went looking through the different Belles 'n Whistles Stamps that I have, and decided to pick one that I haven't seen used very often out there in blogland.  This one is called "Clowning Around" from Belles 'n Whistles "Forever Young Collection"

Of course a cutie like this deserves, a card that is unique in it's own way.  So I went with "Circles, Circles, Circles" ha ha....  Which meant I wanted a circle shaped card. 

the papers I used are from DCWV.... and the little flowers are sort of circles, and sort of flowers, but either way, they were punched, and dipped in water, and wrinkled up.  Topped with Perfect Pearls for shimmer.  And the rest.... as they say.....is history!  ha ha

We truly hope you will find some time to play along in our Belles 'n Whistles challenge.  I know that the rest of the BnW DT, and I can't wait to see what you will all come up with.
Thanks for stopping by and "Clowning Around" with me....  =)

For anyone interested....  The Digi Bells is having a blog hop going on right now!  The brand new Digi release from Elisabeth Bell is FABULOUS.
