Big Top Fun...Curtain Call: Carnival Craze and Unscripted Sketches #69

Procrastinating, at least as far as tackling household tasks are concerned, is flourishing well!  I did, however, escape from my rather over-zealous card-making (as you'll see in the next short while!) activities - all because I have new stuff that must + has to + needs to be used. As in now. Immediately. - to do laundry, rearrange some of my crafting stuff (more containers required!), buy groceries and even stop at the local Rocky Mountain Soap Company shop to pick up a toxin-free new body mist, Blossom Berry.  FREE! Plus, they promised a 'worry-free' day as part of the promo, so hey, why not! Love free stuff and not worrying seems like a good plan, too!!

Anyway, I have a stack of cards ready to post, and I'd best get cracking on doing so, before I forget which belongs to which challenge.  Today, I'm sharing my Curtain Call: Carnival Craze inspired images,


 paired with this week's Unscripted Sketches #69.


Alas, my collection lacks 'real' circus/carnival themedl stamps, so the next best thing: The Alley Way Stamps freebie circus tent.  Add some ticket stamps&dies from My Creative Time, along with a banner from the same line and a sentiment from TAWS and...done!

The bottom tickets are attached with a brad, to fold up for sending. My tent colouring needs some polishing; more practice is in order...and I'm all good with that!!  Dusting and vacuuming? Those can wait...maybe..

Thanks for dropping by; please let me know you did! Your comments brighten my day!

NOTE: So honoured and delighted that my card was selected for the Creation Blvd showcase over at TAWS! Thank you, Alison!!

    You are so creative, Carol! Love seeing all your designs.

  3. Just too cute, Carol! Hey, when the chore-elves finally show up, send 'em on down my way! Good thing our hubby's don't know each other--they might gang up on us about the laundry not done, dust piled up--I won't go on!
