Friday the 13th PHOBIA!

Today is the Smeared and Smudged's members April blog hop...... and the theme this month is WHAT ARE YOU SCARED OF??? 

If you have arrived here from the talented Lisa's blog then you are on the right track, but not don't worry, if you get lost the blog roll in on my sidebar :)

From being a child, I have been scared of CLOWNS!.......I don't even like looking at them.......... so I chose an image of a CLOWN!  Also...... those of you who know my work, will know I tend to overload with embellishments, lace, tassels etc........can't bear empty spaces! 

Here it is

Even now I am itching to glue embellishments to this

The main image is a free download by W Hammock from deviantArt and I have used the a stamp for the Happy Birthday sentiment......... because people think it's a great idea to hire a clown for a childs Birthday party????

I would like to enter this card into the following challenge(s)

  8. Fiona,
    I have never liked clowns either, even as a child. They totally creep me out! You have done a great job! I used a clown too, it was that or a toss up between Santa. I hate Santa! Something wrong w/ men who are fat and dress up in weird suits wanting to play w/ children..............

    Thanks so much for entering your creation at Anything goes, Just keep on creating. I hope you will continue to play along. I haven't had a chance to do the blog hop but many of the designers have entered the challenge so have seen a lot of the scary work through default which is great, enjoying the dark side of creating.
