 Hello everyone,

I'm on my new PC, I like it very much, the only thing I hate, is, every single time I have to login, to blogger, facebook, stores, and all sorts of places, apparently it is a new security load of bull, and I have to comply, so frustrating though, takes time..and blogger I need it now not logging in then confirm on your phone " Yes it's me "..gosh, I will be glad when that has gone..any ideas??

Never mind, I'll stop my moaning and get down to business...

Clowns, as I've shown before not everyone is a fan, but these are so cute and was asked to make a fancy type fold for a 8 year old girl, who loves any type of clowns and circus stuff..

These papers were in my stash, had them for years, but, again, only 6x6
and I cannot make my cards smaller, they have to be big so I can see what I'm doing...( that's my excuse and I'm sticking to 

My little clown sweeties...

First sets of panels, cutting and adding where necessary..

One panel after another, I don't match each panel, not really unless I have 12 x12's
most of the small strips are scraps.. 

star die, it's a goodie, cuts all sizes at once and cuts through glitter card really well..

I then die cut balloons on water colour papers and a lion and monkey
and threw some paint on them, and I mean that, I slopped a bit on and let it do what is does..

The banners were cut next, once in coloured card and once in spotty paper
then pieced together on every other one..

So, everything ready then put together..

This little clown is a newbie I found and went quite well with the other two..

Little lion with lipstick on, ha ha ha, that wasn't supposed to happen..

The monkey on place..

This was my work sheet so I could remember where everything goes..
as you can see it got well used..

Front of card...






Front side..
