Manic Monday Again

Hi everybody, hope you have all had a good weekend and feel strong and fit to tackle the week to come. I had a lazy weekend, did some crafting, read a lot, listened to some old recordings of Kathleen Ferrier, and even managed to roast a chicken for lunch yesterday, which for me is really Haute Cuisine!

Today is the begin of a new challenge over at the Cheerful Stamp Pad - *Time for the Queen's Tea*. For my DT piece I have altered a little clock. I bought a supply of these clocks some time back at the 1€ shop, which is a good price for a working clock. I took off the hands and pulled off the face (sounds rather brutal!), cut a new circle of paper for the face, and stamped it with some Artemio London stamps. The crown has been
* bejeweled* with some liquid pearls. I added a red ribbon with red and white roses, put the hands back on, and now it is ticking merrily away on my kitchen wall.


Have a good day you all, take care, and thanks for visiting!
