Thanks For The Time...

...WhoooHoooo and Wheyyyy Heyyyy! Grim is a darling isn't he? He popped into my room yesterday and added the three remaining shelves to the walls.. so...the Room of Stash/Room One 4 is now complete and finished and ready to mess up again! :O)) I have had this urge to start collecting clocks... so for the past year or so I have been dropping huge hints to His Grimness that I need that clock or I looooved this one especially! Well, he bought me two clocks for my birthday... they are lush *the cream one on the RHS and the one in the hangy wirey thing* ... and I now have a dedicated shelf for clocks, some are old, some are new but I loooove them all! See the little one on the wall below the shelf??? I bought that one in a divine shop in Whitby... and being as I am now officially a collector, I have left enough room up there for another couple :O)) *more hints can be dropped to Grim in future you see... a plan!!!*




And, you know we went away for the weekend to the best place on this planet that is Earth? Well, we couldn't very well leave our AlfieCat to open his own food sachets so our lovely neighbour called in to feed him... so I made her a thank you card.. you know, just to say...erm... thanks!




I used a tried and tested method and layout - you will probably be nodding off if I keep on making this type of card... Distress Inks - Wild Honey, Rusty Hinge, Crushed Olive and Forest Moss... a bit of stamping using that massive music score stamp from Mr Holtz and then a big flower made up of little flowers from the Tattered Florals Alterations. The sentiment is from Penny Black, popped into/onto (which is it? Do you pop something into a Memo Pin or onto a Memo Pin.. anyway, I am off rambling on again) a Memo Pin from the Idea-ology range. The inks, stamps, flower centre, Alterations and Idea-ology are all available from The Stamp Attic...




That's all from me for now.. the sun is cracking the flagstones out there and there isn't a cloud in the sky so I reckon it could be time for a bit of lounging about in the sunshine and aging my already wrinkled old skin a little more ROFL TTFN .. have a goodly day :O))

PS - just to answer a couple of Q's about the hares in yesterday's post... they are indoor creatures and I just let them out onto the decking for the photo shoot :O))

Isn't Grim good putting you those shelves up and I love your clocks. The thank you card is lovely and I adore the colours. Enjoy your time in the sun. Tracy Evans x

I love the card you made. Is Grim a nickname? I call my husband "little Grimmy Dunn" I don't know where the name came from--it just came out of my mouth one day!

Rosie said...

Lovely card, she'll be SO pleased (well I would be)! Good ole Grim, putting up your shelves and buying you clocks - I guess you'll be keeping him then??

ellen said...

LOVE your clock collection - given my preoccupation with time (10:36 arts & crafts), I can see some clocks in my "room of stash" as well. Love the ones you've collected so far.

Lori said...

Love the card, the colors are, as usual, scrumilicious. Your room is coming along quite nicely, love the big "H"!

Oh I really understand your liking clocks, yep they do it for me too. Yours are gorgeous.
Love your card, that's one of my favourite Penny Black sentiments, just love the way the Thank you has been written, in fact I massacred my stamp and removed it. So now I can use it easily on it's own or put it back and use the whole kit and caboodle :) xx
