Congrats to the One Stop Craft Challenge ~ #100

I’m SO late with my DT posting for our big celebration over at One Stop Crafts. It’s our 100th challenge this week and the theme Chrissie chose for everyone is ‘CONGRATULATIONS’. I’ve had a chaotic week, remember when I mentioned we are ‘fostering’ 3 itty bitty orphan kitties? Well, they are still in the house and I fear will become permanent members of the herd. With Mr. Gears on the road all week, I feel like a single mom with triplets! Here’s a peek at part of what has been keeping me so busy. Here they are from left to right: Rosa (red spot), Pancho (orange) and Maya.
I managed to make my card, but had a different ‘C’ word stuck in my brain, ‘Celebrate’. They are pretty interchangeable and there was no time to redo my card before the deadline. Why, you ask? Well, in addition to itty bitty kitty duties, it was the weekend of the CIRCUS!!! WAHOO!!! Mr. Gears is a proud member of the Zurah Shrine and it was circus weekend in Minneapolis. He’s an official member of the local Funsters group (clowns) and this was his second circus as a performer. I was SO excited to share the fun as I missed it last year. We were blessed to see several good friends at the shows and are already excited for next year’s event. Here’s a few pics of my sweet Mr. Gears.

He was one of the medics in the skit they performed (he's in the lead).
Here he is taking a break from autographing programs to pose with a good friend.

Okay, now you know what I've been up to, let's get on to the card! I hope you can come and play at the OSC and you could win a prize from one of our AWESOME sponsors, Robyn’s Fetish or DewDropz.
