Well last night I went to Lily's new Secondary School to meet her tutor, pick out her uniform and walk away with a very very light pocket!!!
I cannot believe she has grown up so much; it brings a lump to my throat as she will be spreading her wings without her mum soon!... Oh goodness me. However, she is a beautiful girl, inside and out and I need to remember I am a lucky Mum.
But on a lighter note, I am working on Christmas! To be honest I have been working on Christmas since last Christmas. Ha Ha!
I am desperate to share so much with you but I am sworn to secrecy for 6 weeks! OMG How will I cope!
So sorry to say I can tell you nothing.......
So here is a card instead :)
This was created with my Circles of Time stamps, and also my cogs Pop-ems.https://www.thatcraftplaceuk.com/ourshop/prod_6086120-Cogs-Popems.html
I took a 6x6 hammered card blank and I masked off a section right at the bottom of the page.
I left about a 1.5 inch space then masked another section.
I took one of the stamps and stamped in the gap between the masking tape in
Chrome Yellow and Venetian Orange Archival Ink. I removed the tape and you can see this fabulous border.
Just above that border I stamped the clock from the set in a mix of the 2 archival colours.
I stamped off the page, which is one of my signature "things". I think you can create great balance this way.
I used some white sparkling embossing powders to cover the Pop ems and layered them up as seen on the photo.
I then took a stamp from the same set, to stamp good time, and another stamp to create the clock hands. I cut the hands out leaving a white edge. When I glued them on I raised them slightly for more dimension.
I then popped on some sequins to add balance.
I love this card.
Hope you do too.
