Around the Clock

I woke up to some happy news this morning (see here ). Wow, am I ever surprised! I think it does pay to have a rainbow kick after all!? Heehee! Onto the card today...

I have this stamp set called Special Time (by Hero Arts) and I do not use the set nearly enough. Here is the first time it is making a debut in my little blog. This card was initially made for Paper Crafts call and was a reject. It was my last minute submission for Stamp It issue. It was like...try anything, do anything moment as the deadline was fast approaching in a few hours! Even though it was not chosen, I still kind of like it! Thankfully I do have a card picked up for that upcoming issue. I bet that issue is going to be amazing!!
Thinking About You Round The Clock
I took a fast and easy approach to this card. The white-embossed clock image is very striking against the brown card stock. The zig zag line is actually from SRM Stickers.
Thank you so much for your TIME to make a visit to my blog day in and day out. Your encouraging comments always make me smile!

You did good - not a reject, dear pal.....just not a perfect fit! I struggle with this set because I don't like the font on the sentiment. But you have used it in such a timely fashion!
