He's looking at you....

It's been a week since my last post as we have been on holiday down in Devon but it was spoilt by some idiot not paying attention and driving into the back of us....it took a couple of days to sort out and also we had to have our car checked to see whether it was safe for us to tow our caravan home....BUT we are OK thats the main thing.

Have you ever bought a stamp, got it home and thought 'what am I going to do with that'??  Well this is one of those, its a  Papermania Urban Stamp called  'Chronology Looking Glasses' it was my bargain stamp from Trago Mills £2.40..so I just had to buy it.... My lovely friend Val shared some of her Chronology papers with me so I scanned a piece into my Craft Artist programme and changed the colour....

I've added different Distress inks to the background as well as paper pieced some of the clocks in a different colours....just 3D his hands and glasses as I didn't know what else to do!

Its a glorious day here with lots of sunshine and I feel quilty crafting I should be out in the garden...there is always tomorrow...

I am sorry if I haven't visited your blog yet but have been washing and ironing since getting home....

Hi Anne - I've also had that feeling of "what do I make with this now I've got it home", but you have made a fabulous masculine card with this bargain stamp (I need to go shopping with you Anne!) - the 3-d effect is fabulous, and what a perfect sentiment too. Brilliant!

Sorry to hear about the car accident - thank goodness you were not hurt. Hope it didn't spoil your holiday.

Hugs, Sylvia xxx

Sorry to hear about the accident. I think it is grand that you have a caravan. Sure would like to go back to England and how much fun to go around with a camper. But we could not do well as y'all drive on the wrong side of the road!!!!! Love your card Anne!!
