Anyone Got The Time? & Did You Know Sheena Has A DT Call Out?

Afternoon folks. I hope you are all enjoying summer. How wonderful to get some warm sunshine at last. It certainly lifts your spirits doesn't it? The trouble is I'm now torn between my garden, which desperately needs some attention and doing what I need to do in the craft room, oh well, not a bad dilemma to have I suppose!

Yesterday was my dear Hubby's 50th Birthday. What a frightening number that is, thank goodness I have a good few years before I catch him up, although it doesn't bother him at all. We both managed to get the day off work, a rare luxury these days and made the most of it by going into Leeds shopping and doing lunch. It was a really lovely day.

I had struggled with what to buy him for his big day, he is a man of few wants although he loves his gadgets like most men but he has always wanted a large clock for his office so that is what he got. This is what I made him.

I never thought I'd struggle with it like I did, there are three different colours under this final one. I think I'm happy with the blue and brown now though. The stamps in the middle are Chocolate Baroque Punky Romance, love this set and I painted them with Sheena's Pebeo acrylic's, the iridescent ones out of the big set, love those too. The crackle stamp is Sheena's Ageing Beautifully and the Roman Numerals are from Inkylicious.

He has taken it to work to hang in his office!!

Before I go I'd just like to say a big hello to all my new followers. I couldn't understand it yesterday when I saw you all and wondered why I was suddenly so popular but then when I checked Facebook and saw the post from Chief Inkoid Fiona all became clear. I'm glad you found us all and you are very welcome.

If anyone doesn't know Sheena has a DT call out for 2 new Inkoids. For all the details please click this link. The closing date is the 20th June and all the information on how to apply is clearly set out.

She also has some shows on C&C this Saturday so watch out for them. I didn't make any new samples for these shows but the other Inkoids have been busy creating and are showing them off on their blogs if you want to have a look.

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy this beautiful sunshine.

Happy Crafting.

No wonder he's taken it to the office. It's beautiful.

This is absolutely wonderful Lisa. Happy Birthday to Mr Hubby too. Are you sure he enjoyed the shopping? Mine would hate it...unless it was in Prague of course as he knows we will stop off on the way around at certain favourite watering holes!
