Happy Birthday...CR84FN63 Week 2 28

Mona Pendleton | Saturday, September 22, 2012 @ 8:55 PM | , , ,

Hello there! It's hard to believe Autumn is here already especially when the temps are still in the high 90's here in Phoenix. I'm trying to squeeze in every last day of the swimming season. We solar heat our pool so it maintains a comfortable 89 - 90 degrees for at least a few more weeks which is perfect for me :)

Today I have a card to share for the second week of CR84FN63. Thanks for all the pretty entries in the gallery thus far and interest in the open DT call! Please keep them coming!
Here's my interpretation:
I combined some pretty Authentique patterned paper along with a few images from the Die-namics Circus Spectacular Die & Stamp Set (LJD). I love the convenience of having the coordinating Die-namics for this stamp set! Saves a few minutes not have to fussy cut around the images allowing more crafty time :)
For sketch inspiration, I referred to the October MFT GUEST Designer sketch challenge. For COMPLETE details, please refer to the MFT blog (click HERE). 
Thanks so much for visiting! Please be sure to visit the DT members for wonderful inspiration (listed on my side bar) and the CR84FN site for COMPLETE details.
Be Sweet :)


MFT Supplies Used:
Stamps and Dies: Die-namics First Place Award Ribbon Die & Stamp SetDie-namics Circus Spectacular Die & Stamp Set (LJD), Die-namics Scalloped Scallop Die, Die-namics Rounded Banner STAX
Button: MFT Kraft

Love the Circus theme, and the demin DP.
Enjoy the nice warm weather, we have had some late summer sun here but it is very chilly in the early mornings and evenings, and the leaves are turning now, though the autumn is a lovely time of year.

Hi Mona!
I've missed a lot of gorgeous creations from you, while I was away on my short holiday! Loved looking back!! I'm curious what sprays you use on your projects. You said the Dylusion colors scare you? hi hi! I love their colors, but would also love some soft colors! This card is fun! Love the big tent!! Perfect as the background this way!! Very nice!!!
Hugs & happy Sunday!
