The CHALLENGE of TIME


Hi! Everyone......well the weather has gotten a bit chilly again after a beautiful 79 degrees yesterday afternoon and evening...it was wonderful! Today, it is in the 40's so I took the time to play another challenge over at Taggers . Their theme is TIME; and because I was recently at Disney World's CAROUSEL OF PROGRESS, I decided to make a birthday card for a grandfather who was born in a different century and who used a pocket watch on a chain to tell time. I have very few supplies as you know so I had to improvise by making my own buttons, and even with a sentiment. I used the NEW SU set called Well Scripted as the design idea to write my own verse using a white gel pen! Have fun today, and why not limit yourself and see what you can come up with on your own! Enjoy!
