An Amazing Birthday! Buttons the Clown

I already had this card made before taking my blogging sabbatical and it seems a shame not to share it
It features Buttons the Clown from Digital Delights and it will be going to a very special little boy in my life in less than a month, good job he doesn't look at my blog!
I want to thank each and every member of the teams I am on for supporting me during this break, my family has to come first at the moment, but I will be back up to speed soon, by the middle of August at the latest. I miss you all and hope my followers will stay around during this slow down.
