Just for a change

Hello, phew I'm feeling super tired today after a dew nights "unwinding" after the finish of school on Friday. But I've dedicated the whole afternoon to crafting and then a bath! 

As ever I haven't had time to get everything done that I wanted to do and so the handmade calendars that I had every intention of making to send out with Christmas cards didn't quite get round to being made. Therefore I've decided to send them out with New Years cards instead. So here's a super quick and easy one layer card I've made (you can see just how quick in my challenge list below). Just a Clock stamp from Papermani stamped in silver ink, a sentiment from Clealry Besotted (Happy Everything) and then a touch of silver embossing powder. As I was doing crafting under time restrictions I decided not to rest stamp the image even though the inking and embossing powder is a bit patchy however I actually think it looks quite nice and distressed on reflection- happy accidents eh!?



You can see the metallic finish a bit better in this photo.




Thanks for stopping by,
