Clowning around.....

As I am recovering at home after being really poorley, I am making some crafts that totally absorb me. This clown was made from the template from Cathy Shuttleworth. Love her templates. This took some time to make as every piece of card and paper has to be cut out and shaped and stuck. Really enjoyed doing this project and hope you like it too? Leave me a comment love to read them as it cheers me up whilst I am stuck at home....
