Time Flies at TioT

Hi Folks,

Its time for another challenge at Try it on Tuesdays and this time its 'Time Flies'.  We are again sponsored by Really Reasonable Ribbons with a $15 voucher for their online store.
For my card I had to keep it fairly simple as we are in the middle of major re-decoration,( more about that later).  I embossed the TH Clocks onto white canvas as I couldn't find my white linen card - good job the canvas was reduced in a certain German Supermarket. The sentiment is Stampendous, inked with Dusty Concord and embossed with Clear EP. The TH clock die cut was coloured with chalks and the outer cut was raised with foam pads, flowers from stash and a Computer sentiment.  The rest of the DT have some amazing projects, so please pop over here to take a look.

Life, hopefully, should be returning back to normal, just a few jobs to do in the revamped 'craft room' and then I will be able to unpack and find everything!!!  Unfortunately for me, I came last in the decorating rota, which meant 'my' room became the storage hold, and although I am a messy crafter, I couldn't craft in such upheaval, but now that DD has finally moved her mountain of  'a few things left'  from the summer, the 'new spare room' was priority.
'Hello' to my new follower, so lovely to see you, and hopefully I will be able to do some blog visiting and do a catch up with all your lovely crafty makes.

I am entering this card in:
  Sweet Stamps - Embossing Folder/Die(s)/Stamp - use all 3
  Crafty Calendar - Love & Marriage
  Make it Monday - Anything Goes

Thats it for now, and thanks for looking,

Avril xx

Like the idea of the 'wings of time' inside the TH clock Avril and the soft colours prove Timmy things don't always have to be grungy.

A great take on this week's theme, with clocks used for both background, die cut and image! This card perfect for either a man or a woman, which is so practical!

Lovely card Avril, the Time Flies is one of my favourite Stampendous stamps and I just love how you've used the TH Weathered Clock with it.
Hope all the decorating is nearly done - just think, you'll have a fab new craft room when it's all finished. xx

Such an elegant card - with that beautiful embossing and the fabulous stamp, it really doesn't need anything else...
Glad to hear you're nearly back to normal (or actually all new and improved with the redecoration...) and free of all the upheaval!

What a lovely delicate card - and how appropriate for an anniversary!! I do hope you are all settled back in your craft room soon - I know exactly what you mean about one room having to become the repository for everything - one of the reasons why I hate the upheaval of decorating!! Hugs, Cindy x

Hi Avril, this is such an elegant card. I love the wings inside the clockface. It's such a great choice for an anniversary card - the 27 years since I married have definitely flown!
