Time

I had a couple of challenges to share today.  I was playing around with the cream and black from the City Crafters Challenge this past weekend and finished this card a little bit after  my other CCCB card.

The background is from this really cool stencil from The Crafters Worksop that is made up of large distressed clocks.  I loved it and wanted to create a card around the stencil.  The background was sponged onto cream cardstock.  Then the telegram stamp from Artistic Outpost Ephemeral Backgrounds was stamped randomly in the background.  The other images are from Artistic Outpost Wonderland Collage and Whimsical Melange.
I hope the card applies as the challenge said primarily cream and black. :)

My second card is for the My Minds Eye - Sketch Challenge and Embellish Magazine Buttons Colors Trend Challenge.

The paper is from My Minds Eye - Lost & Found collections. The stamps a combination of Nina B. Crafts Meow and B Line Design Secret Garden.

Hope your week is off to a good start!  We had ton of wind this past weekend but lovely sunny days.  Very crisp and fall like.

  2. Hi Sue, what a brilliant belated birthday card the first one could be. I need to check out the Artistic Outpost stamps again. I really love the telegram stamp and the others are great too. Shame on me I think I have the mask and have not used it yet :(

    The second card is another of your elegant designs. I love the manequin!

    We've had a gorgeous weekend here weather wise but it's taken a dive today. Very overcast and with an extremely biting wind and the odd squally shower. Lots more to come apparently .......... double :(
