Tick Tock

Good morning everyone hope you are all ok in blogland.  Here in Blackpool it is lashing it down at the moment but still sunny!!

Today's card is one I made using a Meljen's image and I thought it would be suitable for a man:

As it was going to be for a man I didn't put any embellishments on it.  I coloured the image with Copics and added some Liquid Pearls and Glossy Accents to his eyes.  The clock face and hands are paper pieced and I added a metal brad to the hands.  The clock die behind the image is Tim Holtz and the corner dies are Whimsy.  The computer generated sentiment has been cut and matted using Spellbinders.  I can't remember where the papers are from as I made the card the other week!  I would like to enter the following challenges:

Bearly Mine - Use Dies
Lollipop Crafts - Just for Him
The Pink Elephant - Polka Dots and Stripes
Robyn's Fetish - Paper Piecing
Sentimental Sundays - Birthdays + Embellishments starting with B (I have used brad on clock hands!)
Allsorts Challenge -Card for a Man/Boy
Craft Your Days Away - All Creatures Great and Small
Crafty Catz - Happy Birthday
Totally Papercrafts - No Pesky Girls

Well yesterday I only got one DT card done, I was hoping to do some more but my back was aching because of standing up.  I always craft standing up as I need to get stuff out and look at things etc so I find it impossible to sit down.  I am going to try again today and see how I get on!  I'd like to say a big welcome to my new followers and thank them for following I am really honoured and delighted.  That's it for me for today - see you tomorrow and take care xx
