A Ten Minute Quickie!

CCC01 Get me ... I finally got around to joining in with the Compendium of Curiosities Challenge this week!

It was such fun ... I may even do it again! Truth be told ... I only spent about 10 minutes on the card ... but it's the thought that counts ... right? I don't often buy papers on  a whim ... but when I saw these Steam Punk papers from Graphic 45 ... I had to have them.

This week's challenge is Page 54 in Lord Tim of Holtz's Compendium of Curiosities ... out of respect for Tim ... we don't tell you the details ... because that would be quite wrong and a whole breach of copyright etc., ... probably leading to my arrest and a prison sentence without any sharp objects ... that means no scissors ... oh my ... just the thought fills me with horror! You know Tim ... the man that can fill the world's sky with CCC02 Fireworks ...  making sure the world's animal population were safely tucked up in bed first with just a sprocket gear and the leg off a brad.

I really should go now ... the card only took 10 minutes to make ... but with taking photo's and talking to you guys ... well I have just used an hour and this was n't even on my 26 Kilometre long to do list.

... I nearly forgot ... the viewing went really well ... so fingers crossed for that full asking price offer ...

Laters!

You know, if I can ever make something this wonderful in TEN MINUTES, I'll quit my day job and start crafting full time. What a stunning work of Industrially-Grungy, steampunk-approved GORGEOUSNESS you've created, my sister in Linda-ness!

You're so right about those G45 papers-- I think it's one of the best stacks they've ever done, and the background works perfectly with the metal and grungeboard gears. You totally rocked the technique (of course you did, you're Linda Elborne!) and as happens every time I see your work, I'm completely smitten with the distressed beauty before me.

Thanks so much for joining the party, and please do come back again! Got my fingers crossed for your home sale. :-)
