I could really do with some more time at the moment, about 4 more hours in a day would be good! Two weeks tomorrow til the big day, I have some things to share on that front but it'll have to wait til I get some photos taken, time is short!

This weeks Dare is set by the wonderfully talented Kathy who has given us the challenge...

"It's About Time"
So you can use clocks, calendars, quotes, sayings, pictures, nursery rhymes, or altered art-type stuff, whatever takes your fancy - just take some time out to play and have some fun; remember, time flies when you're having fun!

I had a bit of a creative block at first, nothing would work, but after a busy day I had two ideas at ones. See, just like buses!

The first one uses Basic Grey Sublime papers. One of the older collection pads I have but such lovely warm colours. The border is cut freehand on one side and with those decorative edge scissors I never thought would see the light of day on the other. The clock hands are Papermania photo turns with a Making Memories Brad. The ribbon is from my local craft shop, inked to tone it in with everything else. The ribbon slide is trimmed down from a cuttlebug die cut, all on a kraft brown card blank.

I was less happy with this one to start with but its growing on me. Rusty Pickle Papers, Stamps by Hampton, Graphicus and Leave Memories. The border is cut with my new favourite toy the Basic Grey Notch tool, I love it!

It's actually black and cream whereas the pic makes it look black and white, I need a photography lesson, anyone doing any up this way?

The Daring Cardmakers Design Team have, as always, come up with some stunning examples of things to do with this theme. I hope you dare too!
