Time is flying over at the Anything Goes Challenge Blog

Morning to all my fellow "Crunchies".  I hope that you have had a fantastic weekend and that you caught up on all my exciting new yesterday.

Don't forget to become a fellow Cutie and hop on over to my Challenge Blog and join in.  We always have great sponsors and fab prizes.

As many of your now I belong to another fantastic design team - who inspire all you guys on the Anything Goes Blog.  This fortnight our challenge is "Tick Tock goes the Clock"  anything time related or steam punk.

Well how can a girl resist a bit of Tim Holtz in her life, and he fits so well with this theme.  It was my baby brother's birthday last month so this is the card I came up with for him....

The gorgeous clock is of course a TH Sizzex die.  The papers are by Kanban and also Graphic 45 and the edges have been distressed with TH distress inks.  I used spellbinder Nestabilities to cut the gorgeous matting and layering shapes.  The fantastic gentleman topper is from Kanban.  (Isn't he just so handsome and dapper!!)
The "Brother" wording was cut on my Cricut.
If you look closely you will see that the whole of the card was stamped with one of the new papermania urban stamps using black ink before I matted and layered all those fab papers.

I decorated the inside using scraps of the same papers used on the front.  The verse is one from an old card.  I stamped the paper with the same papermania urban stamp in a toning colour and then printed the verse.

Dont forget the fantastic Craft Den sells lots of gorgeous timmy products and many more besides.  

I hope you like it.

All the DT are wonderful and have been so supportive so I would really appreciate it if you could pop over to the Cutie Pie Challenge Blog and show them some love by leaving fabbie comments on their blogs.  

Anyway this is my card for this challenge.  Our second sponsor is Tiddly Inks and they turned 2 this week.  I have used the fantastic "I love you most" image on my card. 
I used my nesties to create this gorgeous little easel card, and have used versamark inks to cover the whole of the base of the card before dusting with Cosmic Dust
The image was coloured with promarkers and then cut out and mounted.
The sentiment was stamped from the same digital set and then again dusted with Cosmic Dust

Thanks for all your love and support.
I am entering this card into the following challenges:
