Cover of My Book

Afternoon peeps.  It is sunny here at the moment but I am off in an hours time to the hairdressers and it always rains just as I come out what ever time of year it is.  Lol!!!

My creation today is the front cover of a little book I am starting up to display some little bits of art from my favourite Artists.  Never done one before so I thought it was about time I did.  The only thing is I am not use to making things with very flat embellishments or doing the art on a small level.  I am use to make big pieces of art.  I thought I would start with the front cover first where I could put a few flowers on.

A Simple Clock and Butterflies Creation

Hi Peeps.  A simple creation from me today, which is unusual for me to take the easy route.  The sun is shining here today and it is very hot where I sit in my craft room.  I have tried to open the window but we have been plagued with Ladybirds this year.  The other day I was only gone a few minutes and when I came back the whole of my desk was covered in Ladybirds.

My 7 x 7 Card

Numbers all around the Clock Face in both Roman Numerals and Conventional Numbers in the inner circle.  Also numbers on the Post Mark Stamps in the background. I state this for a Challenge I am entering.
