Challenge 64 Time

Hosted by Jackie
As this coming weekend sees the clocks going forward in the UK we thought we would inspire you with a time theme. Your card should reflect in some way the concept of Time - time passing, time spent, time waiting . . . You can use stamps, digi images, photographs, shop bought embellishments, embossing folders, background images, your own drawings or anything else you can think of. 
Please check the rules in the right-hand sidebar before entering. Thank You!
We are kindly sponsored for this challenge by The Stampman (and Lady of course!) who are offering the winner a £10 voucher for their store, you can spend this online, in the shop or if you're lucky enough to see them at a show!  They have a ton of items in store, enough to tickle any crafty taste bud.

I have been drawing since a child and studied graphics at College many years ago, I now work as a Medical photographer part time but my love was always drawing. I started cardmaking about 4yrs ago when I bought my daughter a cardmaking kit which we did together, but I’m afraid I got the bug! My daughter preferred scrapbooking. I then started looking online at other blogs and this then became my passion and I loved sharing my cards with likeminded people.
I love stamping and loved finding images, but sometimes I could not find what I wanted so I started to draw myself.
This then has become my second addiction and I have never looked back, I love thinking of new images, and its just fabulous to see others take them and make them into beautiful works of art. Long may it continue!
So without further ado onto the challenge and what the team have come up with this time
I hope everyone enjoys this challenge as it is the first time I have had to set one and choose a winner - I wish everyone all the very best of luck and look forward very much to seeing what you all come up with! My card has been made using a pearlescent cardstock card base, Couture Creations embossing folder (the clock), flitterglu and gilding flakes, a Marianne Createable diecut butterfly, and vintage photo distress ink.
I've used a Tim Holtz dry embossing folder for my blue back panel, a Kaiser Craft acrylic stamp for my black and white panel, and my main image is by Pink Paislee. My sentiment is from a Prima set--colored glittery gel pens for a pop of color and crackle accents on my main image face.
A Tim Holtz/Sizzix embossing folder with added Perfect Pearls make up my background. The main image is my own, and computer generated, and the single clock image is a Craft Stamper freebie embossed in gold
I used for my card the "Sense of Time" Set from Stampin Up. The Bachground is from SU too - "Sanded".
I've needed a clock for my craft room for ages so what better thing to make than a clock. I used a clock kit, a cheap artist's palette and lots of other bits and it was lots of fun to make
I loved making this card, using a favourite Paper Artsy stamp and an embossing folder.
Hero Arts Timely Bird stamped onto Fimo heart and various spellbinders dies together with Basic Grey Kissing Booth Paper.
I took a completely different tack from everyone else here and used time as a play on words for my sentiment as it has a pub related theme, and at the end of the session the Landlord always calls 'time'. The background is a Cuttlebug clock parts embossing folder.
I went a bit different and made a wall hanging. I've used Paper Artsy Clocks Plate 5, The Artistic Stamper Time and Keys 1 and Spellbinders Sprightly Sprockets Dies.
I've used backing paper from Bearly Mine Designs with Core'dinations Cardstock. Tim Holtz "Pocket Watches" Embossing folder with lots of flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts.Lot's of Stickles & Perfect Pearls with some chain and beads from a broken necklace.
I cut the shapes using my Craft Robo, inked the edges, cut some letters which I inked too, and added a little card candi for the middle of the hands.
Time Waiting......This immediately made me think of Mother to be Tilda from Magnolia. I also used a Tim Holtz Clock die and embossing folder.

Timeless....Mini Pocket Album made out of  four Toilet Paper Rolls.Used various of design paper Stamped clock face image in black , then edged the paper with  Ink Pad for the old look ... More pics on my own blog …
