ATC Time

The snow has one good effect I have stayed indoors playing with my crafting stuff :) I do walk the dog as well as snow clearing LOL. Over at Artful Times Von and Neet have set an ATC challenge with the theme of "Time". Well all the snow got me thinking of Spring (can't come quick enough for me) so I painted some card with a wash of sand acrylic paint and swiped over some sepia ink. Then stamped a background of text and butterflies from Kanban. Layered some strips of music paper and again a dictionary "Time" definition which I gave a wash of the paint and rubbed with ink. Decorated with paper flowers which I made from card and been stickled, my little tag has been stamped with clocks and the saying printed out then rubbed in sepia ink (the saying is from Anna Kerenina). A pretty edge and buttons to finish. Thanks for looking and enjoy the sledging.
Keep warm Hugs Sandra XXX

Oh, how beautiful, Sandra - this is just an absolute delight! So glad I dropped in to say thank you for your comment, and especially as it made me realise I'd left out the link to my mum's website!! It's there now, and here especially for you!
