Clock Mad!!!!!!

Ok, so you are all by now probably thinking I am "Clock Mad" but here is another one I made this weekend. This one is very different to my previous clocks as it is for a desk and measures approx 7" in diameter and has an integral stand, and it was also purchased from The Range (thanks to the eagle eyes of Marlene for spotting it and talking me into buying one over the phone). I have covered it with the same Creative Imagingations "Art Warehouse" paper that I used on the Gorjuss Clock. On this one I used some pink spotted ribbon that I got from HobbyCraft to go around the edge of the clock face. The numbers and wording was also done using some old alpha stickers I had hanging around...possibly by Making Memories or American Craft, although I cannot be sure. I also cut up a Prima Marketing Bling Swirl and added it in between the wording and stamped images...which are incidentally from the new Manga Range by Sugar Nellie....and are fab....just wished I had been in time to get the other 2 stamps in the range. Finally I added a four layer flower with a brad and spacer (I bent the brad to get it to stand at an angle when I stuck it to the outer edge.....plus of course one of the 3D Butterflies made using my X-Cut Dimension punch....with some added bling....a girl can never have too much bling on her desk.....
Sadly this one isn't for me......although I cannot say who it is for as I have to post it next week to the lovely lady I made it for.... I will however be going back to The Range to get a couple more when Marlene gets back from the USA and I go and see her...and stroke her lovely new stash.....you just know she will come back with some.....possibly loads. I did tell her if she goes to mad, she will have to wear ALL her clothes home to save space in her luggage...LOL

Can't believe you got to do your clock before I even got mine out of the box!
You are right about the suitcases though! had to buy an extra one, got charged this time and have only just stopped crying!!
But it's all in the name of craft, so you gotta take the punches right???
Have a great sunday hun,
