Hello All! Wow, two posts in two days - yes, I'm feeling great thanks!!

Last day of half term, back to school on Monday, so I'm making the most of my time and spending it in my craft room! Today's card is to send to a friend who recently retired, got the all clear from cancer, and has just found out that they are going to be grandparents! It's more of a catch-up card to say that I'm thinking of her and all her fabulous news!

I have just discovered the UnstampaBelles challenge blog, where you create things without using any stamps at all! It's always good to have cards on hand that don't have any sentiments on them, and you can always add them later if you wish - a small tag attached to a paper clip for example! Anyway, the theme this month is 'Time', so hence the inspiration for my card!

What I have used:
Papers - My Mind's Eye (Unforgettable 'Story' Tale Paper), Tim Holtz Coredinations Pine Needles and Broken China
Clock - Tim Holtz Weathered Clock, Stampendous Aged Silver Frantage
Lace and brad - Hobby House
Flowers and leaves - Marianne Creatables, Magnolia DooHickeys and Joy Crafts
Pearls - Ranger Liquid Pearls

I would like to enter the following challenges please:
UnstampaBelles - Time with shabby chic twist
Fantastic Tuesday - Monochrome
Crafty Card Makers - Cut it out

Thank you for stopping bye - DT challenge tomorrow!!

Love and light
Claire xx
