Time

Our challenge this week has been set by J
The main image on your card should reflect in some way the concept of Time - time passing, time spent, time waiting . . . You can use stamps, digi images, photographs, shop bought embellishments, your own drawings or anything else you can think of.

Our sponsors this time are:



$10 Gift Voucher



I have been drawing since a child and studied graphics at College many years ago, I now work as a Medical photographer part time but my love was always drawing. I started cardmaking about 4yrs ago when I bought my daughter a cardmaking kit which we did together, but I’m afraid I got the bug! My daughter preferred scrapbooking. I then started looking online at other blogs and this then became my passion and I loved sharing my cards with like minded people.
I love stamping and loved finding images, but sometimes I could not find what I wanted so I started to draw
myself.
This then has become my second addiction and I have never looked back, I love thinking of new images, and its just fabulous to see others take them and make them into beautiful works of art. Long may it continue!

We are kindly sponsored for this challenge by The Stampman (and Lady of course!) who are offering the winner a £10 voucher for their store, you can spend this online, in the shop or if you're lucky enough to see them at a show! They have a ton of items in store, enough to tickle any crafty taste bud.
This is what I used for the challenge, I found this great alarm clock card on the Internet, used my trusty Robo to cut out the shapes, I used some scraps of card for the letters, inked the edges and added a little card candi to the middle of the hands.
I found the Time concept a little difficult but now I have finished I'm really pleased with. I have been really busy with work lately so haven't been visiting my bloggy friends like I should but I'm hoping I will have more time soon so I can catch up on all your doings.
Hope to see your entry to the challenge when I'm on my rounds!

This is such a clever idea and I can think of a few occasions it would be perfect for!

Sorry I haven't been around lately but March has been a manic month for birthday cards, but I am finally all caught up.
