The Hands of Time

This is my second post this morning!  My Shopping Our Stash Challenge post is directly below this one.  Spreading a little LOVE on that post - check it out!

It's time again for a {Pin}spirational Challenge!  Our sponsor this week is Stitchy Bear and you could win a wonderful prize package from them - so be sure and enter your creation in our challenge.

I love the {Pin}spirational photo we have this week and as soon as I saw it I knew I'd be using a free digital image I got not long ago from Beyond the Fringe.  The sentiment is an old one from CTMH and it fit the image so well.  Pretty self explanatory here - I used some SU DP, Kraft, Cajun Craze, and Chocolate Chip card stock, Baker's twine, and did a little embossing and sponging.  This will make a good masculine birthday card I think.



.....and here's our {Pin}spirational photo for you this week..........






Thanks for stopping by................and head on over to the {Pin}spirational Challenge.

How funny, Lynn -- When I saw the challenge photo this morning, the first thing I thought about was a Penny Farthing bicycle and how to add a clock to the front wheel! Maybe I had seen the digi you used and it was in the back of my mind. Fantastic card and I love the sponging. Terrific papers.

MaxineD said...

Love the humour in this card Lynn - and you have mounted the focal image beautifully...the wee hint of sponging is fabulous.
Blessings
