Clowns - on your workdesk!

Well, it's Wednesday again already and so it must be WOYWW (check the side bar link or here  for this growing blog hop bonanza) and I have taken some photos of another "swing round" but won't be going out with my camera till the weekend so the film is still in the camera and those will have to wait for next week.  So instead, here is a quick tag I've made to enter for Hels' Sunday Stampers "Clowns" challenge for this week.



The image is by Funstamps and one of my older - and now very rarely used - stamps.  I used to use it a lot for birthday cards when my nephews were smaller but haven't used it for a long time now. (they are all at least teenagers) It is about the only clown stamp I have (well, to be fair I have a couple in the same range but this is my favourite) and is coloured with pencils and gel pens.  I swooshed a bit of distress ink (the new tumbled glass and chipped sapphire) and some rainbow drops on the clown suit buttons.

I also have, but can't show you yet, some postcards that are work in progress for the Gingersnap yahoo group swap to celebrate their 1st birthday, but they aren't ready enough to show yet. Check out the gingersnap group via the link on their blog here

I hope you'll come back next week to check out inside my drawers (just for you, Hels!) - as long as the photos come out ok, of course.  One day I will try and sort out the software that came with my digital camera so I can upload photos from that - it's a few years old and so is running on an old "adobe" programme that won't work now.... don't ask me, I'm not a techie!!

EDIT. Hels, the rose arrived safely today - thank you.  If you haven't seen it, you have to go check out Hels faux porcelain rose tutorial on her blog. She was doing a make and take at Stevenage on Sunday which was so popular I couldn't get close enough to do one - so she made me one specially and it arrived in the post today!  Thanks Hels!!!

Cute card, Helen! I'm not much a fan of clowns, but these are cute. I don't have any clown stamps as a matter of fact. So no entering the challenge for me. Although I guess you wouldn't have to have a clown stamp. Anywho, cute card, and can't wait to see inside your drawers. lol
