MAWTT Add a number

Judith has set the challenge this time at Moving Along with the Times and it's 'Add a Number'.

There are no children in the family so I don't have the opportunity of adding an age. I don't know anyone who has a special age birthday either, 82 or 37 isn't really the same as 80 or 40 is it? So I resorted to using the embossalicious clock folder - lots of numbers. lol

My card blank is a 7x7 by Craft UK. I embossed Crafter's Companion's black card and then sanded the clock faces to show through. It was matted on to Papermill's bright orange card. A Craft Box SnipArt lamp/clock was added to the bottom edge. Another Craft Box item - the little wooden frame - was used to hold the computer generated sentiment 'It's time for a birthday'.

I'm entering my card into the following challenges:

Kitty Bee Designs - Birthday
The Sisterhood of Crafters - Anything Goes
Lemon Shortbread - Anything Goes
Though the Craft Room Door - Anything Goes

I'm still up to my ears in packing cases so crafting time is non-existent. My son and DIL arrive next week to stay with me for a few days and they'll help me to get a bit more done. I've been sorting boxes of books for the past two days and although I don't like to part with them I've got seven boxes waiting for the BHF to pick up tomorrow. I've still got four boxes to open but I'm so shattered I'm finished for the day.

Enough of me whingeing, thanks for visiting and for leaving comments.
