Tick Tock…..

I am finally getting into the game again. Being sick is just horrible for someone like me. Someone who always has to have something to make….to create….to play with. Being forced to lay in bed for a week is torture not to mention one more week of endless coughing, sneezing and a brain that’s just gone completely blank. URG!

Well finally there’s a light at the end of the tunnel and I managed to stay up and do a bit of crafting. And I threw myself at Dreaming Tree’s cute little Dogwood Mantel Clock:


I used AC Cardstock in Chestnut to make the clock along with patterned paper from Graphic 45 “Rare Oddities” and some wood patterned paper from Kaisercraft. I also used some gold pearl paper for some of the clock detail and more pearl paper in mint, purple and light purple for the flowers. Finally I found some large jewels in my stash for the center of the flowers.

The only thing I thought that was missing for this clock, was the ability to light it up from the inside, so I made it possible by cutting the clock face through all the front layers and added some vellum behind the clock face.

Now I can tell time in the dark too πŸ˜‰


This was such a nice little rebound project for me and I feel somewhat like my old self again – about time!!!

Thanks for joining me – please remember to leave a small comment if you liked my little project.
