Sketch Saturday Week 218

Hello Everyone...

I have made a resolution to try and make one card or page or something each day and use a stamp which I haven't used before... and try up to use all my odd bits of paper and card....quite a big bite for me... so here we go... this is today's creation... I am not happy about the coloring, but thought if I chucked up today, I would not keep up with my resolution so soldiered on...LOL..

I used the clock and sentiment from the Hero Arts range CL388 "Cuckoo". Yes they are both Virgin stamps...>vbg<
no apologies 'cause I am sure I am not the only violator on this front.

The background papers are left overs from our Scrapbook convention back in April... so I am not too sure which company they are from.

I also used my circle S4-116 and Lacey Circles S4-293 from Spellbinders and one of my all time favorite punches from the Martha Stewart range.

The clouds are back in Cape Town and it looks like a bleak weekend ahead.. perfect for working by the fireside.

Have a splendid weekend

    1. Aw shucks Moz thanks for the compliment, I have so many bits of off cuts - not to mention full sheets of scrapbook paper and paper stacks. U know this is one serious addiction we have LOL.

      Cleaned my work table a few days ago so now I am on the road to create

      Thanks for stopping by
