http://www.sirstampalot.co.uk/rubber-stamps.php are moving to a bigger and better new shop, to celebrate the move they've got one of their fabulous designers to do a blog hop, Brenda at floral fantasies (http://stamping-fantasies.blogspot.com/)has lots of yummy candy donated by them. Visit her blog for the chance to join in. There is a blog hop and and a challenge, (the theme is moving)
I really had to rack my brains for this one, and finally plumped for Time, as time is the one thing that is always moving.
After cutting the shapes with the square Nestablilities, I created the clock by using Plexi glue and foil, drew some clock hands cut them out then coloured then with Promarkers.
I collect watches, so I went through my broken bits and found a little watch face and added that for balance.
I adapted the easel card as I wanted to decorate the inside, The clock inside was computer generated, n I couldnt find a time poem so I made one up myself.
I have used dps by Brenda Pinnick, Stamp is duet by inkadinkado (my all time favorite stamp) coloured with promarkers. Sentiment was computer generated.

A busy week for me, as Ive had quite a few birthday cards to do. I thought I was gonna run outta steam. But I finally managed to get around to the Promarker challenge card. Id done the card, but felt it needed something else, and didnt like the things I tried, I dont like flowers or ribbon on a male inspired card so ended up cutting some leaves out with the craft robo, and colouring those. Job done.....................
This weeks Promarker challenge, All creature's great and small.
I have chosen a Sugar nellie stamp (rory), Dp K&Co, Computer generated sentiment, and leaves cut with the Craft Robo, Coloured with Pear, Moss, Ivory, and Burnt sienna. Little brad from stash.
