Saw the idea for this on pinterest really liked it so thought I would have to make one
Took the clock up to our local jeweler and he took it apart for me
Then I had to decide what I wanted in the clock, did a few bits and pieces some I liked others I didn't and this is what I ended up with

I primed the clock and painted it pink, and not that you can really see it, I stippled the paint
I adhered the flowers,bird cage and stringed pearls so they would be visible leaving the rest on the bottom loose


Before painting the clock, I added a leafy flourish  I cut 6 of them and stacked 3 on top of each other and adhered them to the sides of the clock with white glue

 I made an assortment of flowers from card,material and lace, adding pearls and gems to some of them

I enjoyed doing this, it was a bit time consuming but its another Birthday present done and as I have another clock might have to do one for myself

One of my grandsons (little Lucas) is turning 5 next month and he is right into minions and as I am a net surfer and shopper I found these minions had to buy them 
So this is what I have done with them
Used wallpaper to cover a old deep photo frame  then adhered them with the hot glue gun made the bunting on the scan and cut used bakers twine for them to hang on the adhered them to the frame with drawing pins, put dots in the corners also done on the scan and cut, I wasn't too happy with the corners so they covered them

just a few cards

Have not been able to do much crafting lately too much going on but I have managed to finish my Christmas Cards I am not going to put all of them on here... could be here for ever.
Have gone away from Santa and snowmen (with the exception of my last card one for the grand kids) as we have a summer Christmas and I thought it was about time to try something different

This one I printed music to white card then cut out the poinsettia out on the cuttlebug adhered it to white base card cut a circle out of another  scored it adhered it to card with foam  
 This one I embossed white card and adhered to white base card printed off the sentiment on the computer made this poinsettia and leaves with vellum something different for me
  This one I embossed white card distress inked edged  and adhered to brown backing paper then onto gold card cut a circle with same printed music card distressed the edges added gold thread adhered to back of gold card then onto a white base card
This one is a Santa shaped card de-coupaged  I did not use foam just glued all bits on top of each other used flower soft on his clothes
