Time

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!

ooooh lovely cards Rhi - you've also reminded me about the fab BG Sublime papers - not had those out in a while...discontinued now too, so maybe I'll leave them where they are after all.

The black and cream is gorgeous too. So would you reccommend the notch tool then? I've been looking at it for quite a while - dithering, as you do!

I love your cards, Rhi. Congratulations to DCM for the article in the magazine (I happened to buy it this morning, not realising the article was in it, so a pleasant surprise).

I love both your cards Rhi, but the BG one has to be my fave. I love the way you've used photo turns to make the clock hands.

Love both cards, but especially the BG one. Clever idea to use the photo turns as clock hands.

Gorgeous cards. I definately love the top one, the colours are fab & the bottom spotty piece of paper is very scrummy.

Kate said...
