Time Flies

Hope everyone has had a great weekend. Mine was really productive because I managed to tidy up my craft room a bit on Saturday morning and it makes such a difference (yep - I can see the floor and my desk again!). I'm not the tidiest of crafters but when the craft room is tidy it is so much easier and quicker to make cards, isn't it?

Anyway, here's a non-dt card for a change. I picked out the Ching-Chou Kuik's 'Time Flies' stamp for this card. It has been coloured with Promarkers and the background was coloured with watercolour pencils. I made my own backing paper for this card with distress inks and a stempleglede grunge corner stamp. I've even done some sanding on the embossed section.

I'm entering this into the following challenges:
In A Sweet Pea Dream - "Talk To Me" (a sentiment)
My Time To Craft - Emboss, Emboss, Emboss
Oh La La Challenge - 3 of a kind
Oldie But A Goodie - Fairies, mermaids, dragons or other mythical beings
Paperplay - Layer it up
Passion for Promarkers - Let It Shine
Sketch Saturday - The Sketch I followed.
Stampin' for the Weekend - Getting Warmed Up

Okay - off to link these up before I head off to bed.

Thanks for looking,
Sharon xx
