Tonka and Bonzo

Today we are taking a trip to the circus. Meet Tonka. He's definitely a lovable little elephant! I really love how this card turned out. I don't use gray to often, but the colors just pop off of this card! I followed Sketch Challenge 214 for the layout.

Next up, meet Bonzo. Of course he is a clown, but how cute is he? He's short, but full of lots of character. I loved coloring his outfit and even added a few sparkles to it with Stardust Stickles. I used the Bow Easy to make my double bow at the top. I also followed this sketch from Taylor's blog.

Is it December 11th already?! ;)

Love your cards! Where did you get the bow easy and do you like it?

What did you use to color in the clown? I LOVE the colors and how bright and cheerful they look.

I am doing a circus themed 2nd b-day for my son, and I was thinking about purchasing this stamp, but am trying to figure out what the best markers etc to use to make it look as good as your does. Any help you can provide, would be great! You can email me at:

Thank you so much,
