September 1...


As the seasons click over accompanied by major flooding in Texas and Bangladesh this year, the Cancer Society have their Daffodil fundraising day in NZ - right on a husband's anniversary 
(death by cancer).  So how can we commemorate, or celebrate, anniversaries, birthdays...

Welcome to the first Day of Spring at Anne's Asylum.  
She's wondering, when it's a bit early for a bunch of flowers, 
what do you give a Skeleton on her/his birthday?


Why, a rusty crusty skeleton key of course!!!


And since the tag was on a steampunk theme at the start, 
there are chains to rattle instead of ribbons.

Plenty of papers diecut,  multi-layered, one of the cogs is paperclay.  
The skeletons hang out at Silver Crow Creations and keep jumping into my shopping cart!  
There is one stamp, used as the "frame" - blame Seth Apter for that!!! *sigh* 
it's the bicycle chain - steampunk done and gone beyond death .
Oh, and the numbers  are also stamped across the "top" of the tag.
--------------------------
And what would a party be without FUN (???!!!) entertainer? 
So bring in the clown:


CAS style postcard, so only one layer here.
Using stamps from Sin City Stamps.
(this and this)

Come back mid-month to see how Anne "celebrated" 200 years since Jane Austen died

Meantime how do you celebrate YOUR dark anniversaries?  Share *here*
