Calum Birthday - OSAAT #231

Hi my friends.  It's Sunday again and will be a quiet one for me after our church meeting this morning. It's been quite a weekend. Won't bore you with the details of running my car into a ditch Friday night on the way to the wedding of the daughter of one of my work friends.  Ooops!  Not funny really, I wasn't hurt but looks like the car was (underneath) the outside still looks great.

Last night went out with my daughter and her family (son-in-law and 2 grands) to see Cirque de Soleil - Amaluna!  If it comes anywhere near where you live, GO SEE IT!  It was FABULOUS! I couldn't believe some of the things they did. Out to dinner after the show, so really a nice evening.

Sorry to go on and on, I'll get to my card.  This week our theme at One Stitch at a Time is Anything Goes with a Birthday!  Yeah, everyone needs birthday cards.  Here's mine.

  1. What a super funky clown Maggie, awesome colouring and those balloons are just the ticket to make this super duper creation really pop :) :) :) Big hugs, Jane xxx

  2. Yikes on your car ending up in the ditch! So glad you weren't injured! Scary.
    I love clowns and love your card. The balloons are so cute and fun on here and love the design you used. Fantastic card.

  3. Love your cute clown and the balloons- fun! So glad you were not injured- scary!

  4. Wonderful fun card Maggie - love the balloons!! Glad the car took the hit and not you!

  5. Everyone does need birthday cards and it certainly doesn't hurt to have a few in reserve. The clown is so cute and a great opportunity to use some bright and fun colors. The balloons are an absolute must with the clown, of course. I've only seen Cirque de Soleil on TV, but it's amazing what they do. I can imagine it must have been pretty fantastic in person!

  6. Super cute card Maggie! Adorable image and those balloons look fantastic!
