So very nice of you to stop by! What a fun and challenging hobby to have!

May you always have work for your hands to do.
May your pockets hold always a coin or two.
May the sun shine bright on your windowpane.
May the rainbow be certain to follow each rain.
May the hand of a friend always be near you.
And may God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.

Happy Birthday Tag

This is For Fun Challenge...create a tag....any kind of tag!!! Our sponsor this week is Paper Shelter and I chose the clown digi. Hope you have fun and be sure to enter the challenge!The prize this week is a good one -- $20 gift certificate- prize choice from the store. Here is where to enter your tag!

I used Smooch to color the clown and highlighted with Sakura glitter pens. I found some great dp paper by Echo Park called Country Drive and it worked great for the background. Martha Stewart heart punch was used at the bottom on one of the sheets. Added some balloon brads, cord and some buttons. Sponged the background with Vivid Raspberry ink and stamped the sentiment Happy Birthday! Plenty of room on the back to do writing! And this clown is NOT clowning around but wishing you a Happy Birthday!
