Altered Clock,and calender

Morning everyone hope you are all okay keep thinking one of these days will be able to get a nice lay in but as usuall the dogs had me up and about bright and early on a cold Sunday morning



I bought this clock from the Craft Barn,along with the calender they come blank for you to create your own design onto them.  Never thought the clock would work as I am not that great at putting things together but must say brilliant instructions,with these.  I have made the clock for a presant for xmas,and the calender I gave to a friend of mine yesterday for her Birthday and she just loved it.
So here they are.
Papers,7 gypsies,
Rub ons,7 Gypsies,
Metal corners,Tim Holtz
Fan,from my stash
Now for my clock. Rub on in centre 7 Gypsies,paint adirondack Black and Peony Echo friendly paint.
The letters cut with my double do machine,sizzex,dies.Stickers,from my stash.
Just love the craft barn they really have some brilliant items,to alter at the moment great prices,and service too HERE is the link,if you would like to take a look. Another website,were I get my 7 Gypsies,papers from is Craft Emporium They have some fab steam punk papers I am waiting to come in,plus they also have a sale on at the moment too. But both these websites are well worth a visit,as they offer such great value and great customer service too.

Wow Cheryl these are both absolutely gorgeous and such fabulous ideas as presents. Will have to investigate these myself.
Looks like I'm an early bird too even at 9.45 as I seem to be the first to leave you a comment which is very unusual (perhaps they're all tired after the marathon X Factor yesterday!!!)
Hugs, Fliss xxx

Dan said...

I'm a little confused! You've entered these in the Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge, but from your account of making them it seems like you didn't do any stamping? Nonetheless, they are both beautiful, and I'm sure the recipients will be over the moon with them! :) The Design Team are really pleased that you joined us for the Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge this week- Thank you!
