For my first card I created a stair step card, this is a hard card to take a good photo of, it looks so much better in real life. I used 5 of the new Circus Riley stamps on my card …. Ringmaster Riley; Clown Riley in Car; Clown Riley; Riley with Seal and Stilts Riley. I have also used a number of the circus accessory stamps from the Circus Accessory set.

I again used the Cricut Carousel Cartridge to create the big top at the back of my stair step card.

For my second card I used Sophie on her horse, doesn’t she look so pretty! I don’t even like sitting on a horse let alone standing on one LOL!
