Just Clowning Around...

... at least, that was the challenge today at 365 Cards.  Our cards had to have a clown or circus theme.  Considering that when I think of clowns, I think of Tim Curry in Stephen King's "It", I had to think beyond my first response for this one.  


I also don't own any circus-y or clown stamps or images, but I've never let that stop me before.  I did a Google search under "Clown Images".  Interestingly enough, the results contained a fair percentage of evil clown images, which I find oddly disturbing.  It's not comforting at all to know that I'm not the only one who feels this way about clowns...  


Anyhoo, I found this photo of these amazing shoes (actually for sale on a Russian shoe website!) and decided to poke a little fun:

Well, I hear the hubby downstairs, and I'm going to go join him for a snuggle on the couch.  :)  I'm a lucky woman, I am... lucky indeed.


Catch ya later!

Hey Hey - yeh, I don't have any clown images either, I don't like 'em, and I am with you on the IT thing... (gosh how old are we anyway ?) The shoes are just a kick (har-har) and I love the sentiment too. But those shoes, those shoes, what a riot...
