Just another weblog

If you could see the number of clock face and pocket watch stamps I have here you would be wondering why it took me so long to come up with this card for the DCM theme this week.
Here is the brief-:
Hi there, It’s me, Kathy, here to dare you this week;
OK, Absolutely anything goes this week as long as it’s on the theme of TIME.”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!
Well when I read it the first thing that came into my mind was the title of a song…..Time (clock of the heart) by Culture Club which was a favourite song of mine. I didn’t want to do a vintage card so it took some thinking about.
The letters have all been hand drawn onto 2″x4″ pieces of card, cut out and attached to the card with DST.
The smaller lettering for the words are diecut as is the heart.
The clock was a pocket watch stamp with the handle and winder cut off as it was the only one I had which would fit in the space and I think this one was the freebie from Simply Stamping magazine.
A thoroughly enjoyable challenge again from The Daring Cardmakers…….thank you.
