Tick Tock....





Good afternoon girls, hope your all either enjoying a lovely crafty day or the Tennis...I know which one AuntySue is doing and it involves her screaming at the telly...lol.....oh aye, she starts off all prim.... IN HER WHITES.... and strawberries and cream...but trust me when I tell you...she'll be screaming before it ends...lol...

Now I had wanted to show you a card I made for my good friend Tilly's Mum this week, but I didn't take a picture apparently....lol....thought I had and wrote my post up...but no images...DOH....you know I think I'm having more moments than I care for....I only found out this morning that I hadn't linked my last card up to one of the challenges..had to make a dash and hope they forgive me...


This is one I did recently for a Retirement, a friend of Carla's, thought I'd make the clock the center of focus, I think I got an idea for this from the lovely Doreens blog, only hers was far better...
it's a stamp set I've had forever and I triple heat embossed it then glossey accented it, layered it up on some die cut circles, which were also embossed, found an old silvery looking button in stash and added a chain and charm to it. the gorgeous lilac dies are from AuntySue, so beautiful and I am so mean with them..lol...made a little tag and put some of the push out shapes from dis on the corners...everything else is stash I think...

Made a Box envelope with Ribbon from Dovecraft,
Thats it then, am off to see any challenges that I can actually enter into...lol...
Enjoy the rest of your Sunday, thanks for your lovely visit, hugs Janette.xxxxx
