thinking about you...

Hey there!!  Our lovely weather has changed to rain... yuck!  Oh well... I'm sure the nice weather will be back soon.  Have a card to share that I made for a couple of challenges:  Time Out (inspired by words:  time flies, love lasts) and Addicted to CAS (off the edge).

I must be honest and tell you that this card actually started out as a one layer card for the Hero Arts scramble that happened on Saturday (May 17th) over at the Hero Arts flickr group.  When I originally made the card I used the backside to do some experimenting with different images and the stencil.  I posted my original one layer card, but knew I couldn't leave it that way and that I would have to "fix" my little problem.  So, I cut the card in two, threw away the back half and trimmed down the front to fit a new A2 card base.  I added some additional stamping to the front and the enamel dots.  All the stamps are from the Hero Arts set All the Time and the stencil is from Memory Box.  I used Ranger Squeezed Lemonade distress ink for the stenciling and Ranger Faded Jeans to stamp the clock images.  The sentiment was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black.

Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white; Stamps:  Hero Arts; Inks:  Ranger and Memento; Enamel dots:  My Mind's Eye
