So, this is the third time in one week that I've used a sentiment that features some variation of the word "awesome." Pretty sure that's a record of some sort. I don't think I could do that again if I tried...
It's the 22nd of the month, which means it's Your Next Stamp's Feature Day! Every month on the 22nd, YNS design team members are challenged to create a card around a given theme. Because this is YNS's birthday month, this month's theme is CELEBRATE!
Clowns are celebratory, don't you think? (Or creepy/scary, but let's not go there.) Thus, I inked up the recently released WHEELIE FUN stamp set to put together this number:
I think this will for sure be a part of my 100 Card Challenge for Truman, as he is freaked out by clowns. At his first birthday party, David Boren (Sean's former boss, a former US Senator and the President of the University of Oklahoma for the past 20 years) and his lovely wife, Molly, had a clown deliver a proclamation that Truman was the first student in the high school graduating class of 2015 to be accepted at OU. Isn't that, well, awesome?! Truman did NOT like the clown, however, and cried all through her presentation. (Maybe that's why he's going to Harvard, now, and not OU? Hmmm... it's a theory!) I'll have to remind him of this story when I send him this card.
Let's call this clown Tickles, because what little kid wouldn't love to be tickled by a clown? (hee) Here's a close up of Tickles. Please note the embossing on the background behind him; a bumpy background makes his unicycle/juggling feat all the more extraordinary.
