This one’s a very quick (10 minutes, seriously!) card I made yesterday to test out my new *Sense of time* set. It had been sitting here, un-mounted even, since I got it at the start of July! I loved it as soon as I saw it used (by Lydia, I think) and wanted it desperately. When I saw it was in the new Mini, it was the first set on my list! And yet I’ve waited til now to use it!!!! Anyway, I loved it, even though I only used it for a minute :) I can see sooooooooo many possibilities for this set.

S6302368I stamped the cogs onto a piece of *Porcelain* DP in Kiwi Kiss and the clock face in Close to Coco. The sentiment…well I cut it out from something and it’s been sitting in my *I really have to make something with this* basket for ages. I layered it onto a piece of Mellow Moss with inked edges  and the clock hand was inked with Close to Coco and stuck on with a jumbo Choc Chip brad.

You could use this card for an anniversary or engagement or even a wedding card…very versatile it is ;)

I also want to say thanks for all the input about the suitcase. I got Madonna to have a look at it yesterday and she showed me how to make a template and I think I will attempt it on the weekend. I will take the advice of those who obviously know better and make the first attempt with paper I don’t mind wrecking :) I hope to be able to show you the finished case, lined and all, next week :)

Right, better go fortify myself with a last cup of coffee…I am minding Mad’s older kids while her and Mark have to go to a family funeral. I am looking forward to getting to spend some extra time alone with them…and I think a photo session is probably on the cards. I do need more scrapbook material…

See you soon,

Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment! Your card is really nice. Has a classic feel to it.

isn't it funny how sometimes the stuff we crave the most takes longest to use? i suspect it's a variation of the "hoarding" instinct: we want to make something PERFECT on the first try!

which...HEY!...congrats you have completely succeeded!!! (LOVE this!) ♥
