Angela (jellybean74) gave us an interesting HYCCT challenge today -- Words to Inspire. What's your mantra? What keeps you going? I don't know that it's my mantra, but I always told my kids "Nothing learned is ever wasted." So I decided to LEARN something today. I went to the SCS Tutorials to find something that I had never tried before. The Ways to Use It Challenge for today was to take the first letter of your username and make a card using a theme, sentiment, words , or color that begin with that letter. As my username begins with "C," I went to the C section of the tutorials and found Crayon Rubbed Embossing, something I had never done before. Today the Mark's Finest Papers design team is having a blog hop for this month's new releases. I was so taken with a card made by Angela Bode, one of my teammates, that I had to CASE it -- aha, another "C" word!
As far as what my username means, it's pretty simple. I collect clowns and I'm a mom!

This is absolutely gorgeous....and I know that you love clowns!!! I just might have to try this, too.
Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. ~Leo Buscaglia

Lois, this is beautiful!!!! The background is gorgeous and I love your pretty flourish! When I saw your card, I thought it looked kind of familiar! :) Thanks for the compliment!!! (I think I like your placement of flourish and flower better than mine!!!)
