Come One, Come All!

Hi Friends,

I feel so diconnected from you all during these summer months with such little contact compared to my regular posting schedule.  I am enjoying my time up at the cottage with my family but miss the crafting regimen that I am used to. The summer is going by so fast, it won't be long until it's back to the hussle and bussle of school day routines!

Today is the start of a new exciting challenge over at the Outlawz in the Copic/Promarker Challenge Group. The theme for the week is a Circus or Carnival one!  There are so many wonderful images out there to colour for this challenge!  I can't wait to see what you come up with!  Here is my card for a little inspiration!

This little cutie is by MayzyArt!  I used some papers from a mixture of paper pads I had and the vintage circus blocks came from a Digital paper I bought online.  I had no idea where I was going when starting this card and just started cutting things out and was amazed how it turned out!  I love when that happens, it's like it creates itself!!  With maybe a little help from me! lol

I have entered this card in the following challenges:
Pixie Dust Studio - Vintage
Crafts and Me - Use a Digi 

Can't wait to see all you wonderful creations. Our sponsor this month is Guylou's Inimitability. she is offering a $10 Gift Certificate to her online store!  Come one, come all  and join us for some circus fun!

Thanks for stopping by!
