Tick Tock Tick Tock!

CDclock2a

I am in an altered CD swap ... Sid always runs fabulous swaps ... by the by ... I altered my CD to make a clock! I am just testing it now ... but it seems to be functioning correctly :0) I am not entirely sure Mr Rolex-Quartz-Seiko would be entirely happy with the accuracy ... but I don't think he is in the swap ... so that's Ok then :0)CDclock2

Finishing it is a bit of a relief because I have just spent half an hour crawling around on my hands and knees looking for my last purple eyelet that I dropped during the construction process ... which then bounced on the laminate floor ... and to be honest ... I thought it had gone for good ... but luckily ... at the 11th hour [Geddit???] I managed to find it ... amongst other things ... there are some lovely gems to be found under units etc., which you thought you had lost forever!

So my clock consists of a Tim ... the man that can save small children whilst standing on one leg and making a mini domino book ... background stamp ... an ISC flower and a diddy Wendy Vecchi butterfly.

I have also used some scraps of TSS plum metal, Dusty concord distress ink and a cuttlebug folder.

This is my entry for the Sunday Stamper challenge this week ... the theme being circles ... which was very handy because I am rather late getting this swap ready ...

Look at the time ... must fly :0)

Lovely job Linda! :)

Debi said...

Stunning clock!!! Love the purple (would go great in my purple bedroom). You did an awesome job on it.

It's gorgeous Linda - would make a fab pressy for a little girl or indeed a little boy who's in touch with his feminine side ;) Your descriptions of Tim are hilarious they seem to be getting more and more outrageous! What you need is one of those telescopic magnets to save you crawling round on the floor - having said that I dropped a screw the other day and was swinging my magnet about under the sofa and TV unit but compeltely missed it. I eventually spotted it under the chair I'd been standing on :-/
