Bloke in a Blue Bowler

Hello.  Welcome.  Happy 4th of July and I am having a red white and blue fest!!  But mostly blue, cos the Lost Coast Portal to Creativity challenge is I Spy.....Something Beginning with B.  I went with a bloke in a blingy blue bowler with blue background.

Do you know deer can't see red so hunters use red hats during hunting season so they don't get shot by mistake.  Although, as you know, mistakes still happen!!  What's that got to do with Charlie Chaplin in a red and blue tinsel embossed bowler??  Not much really I suppose.

I've also used Carmen's Veranda fun Apple a Day sentiment and Lost Coast Designs beautiful, and in this case very blue, Shooting Star background.  

Thanks for dropping by.  Do pop over to the Lost Coast Portal to Creativity and check out the details and also all the other amazing inspiration from the team for the I Spy.....Something Beginning with B challenge.  How many 'B's' can you get on your stamped creations???   There be prizes.....

Charlie is joining the fun at
