Circus Peanuts

For some odd reason, when I printed up this digi stamp from Bugaboo it made me think of those orange marshmallow circus peanuts that are 200% sugar but so yummy they are addictive.    I have fond memories of my son and I totally decimating a bag of those wonderful sweet treats in record time.   And since I couldn't get the thought of that sugar out of my head (I must have been hungry) I printed the image in orange so I could paper piece Dad and Son making them into scrumptious calorie laden but fat free circus nuts.  Now that I'm thinking about it........ I could make another card to give to my son for Father's Day with a bag a nice fresh bag of circus peanuts.   And I'll buy an extra bag for me.  (That will help me fit in my bathing suit. Not!!!)
For now, here's the Father's Day Card I made.  Guess it could be used as a birthday card too, depending on what you put inside, or just a card to tell Dad you love him. 

Since this is a Bugaboo digi, I am entering this in  Bugaboo Stamp's Catch the Bug Challenge - June Anything Goes,
