CropStop Friday Embossing - June 18th

I just realized that I am coming up on my 2-year anniversary creating for CropStop! Seriously! That's a lot of embossing projects! I admit there are weeks when I think...what can I do that I've not done before? But, sometimes, you don't need to reinvent the wheel...or in this case the clock! Simple designs can have a big impact! I used the new Sizzix Clockworks folder for my sample today. I love this fabbie 5x7 folder!

I took inspiration from a sketch that I created for Apron Strings Designs for June...I just modified it a bit. (You've seen this sketch already, that's why it looks familiar. But sketches are made to be used over and over get crackin'!)

I changed the sketch up a tad, but it's still in there. The cardstock is Bazzill from my LSS Club June kit. Not my normal colors, but I think they work very well with the Pink Paislee paper (6x6 pad - the Queen Bee is out of stock at CropStop, but they do have 365 Degrees and Bayberry Cottage in stock).

The clock hands are Tim Holtz and the sentiment is SRM Stickers. They are the 365 Cards sponsor this week and the DT got a boatload of stickers to play with. I did not manage to do any more of the 365 Cards challenges, but I did use more of my stickers! (Pam gave hard challenges this week! I was afraid to play along!) I am not sure where that fabbie gray twill came from - I think in one of my Apron Strings kits.

I won't be around tomorrow because my daughter and I are attending the Breaking the Mold conference at church. It's tonight and all day tomorrow. It should be a lot of fun for us! It's a conference for girls 12-20 and their mothers. That's a lot of girl power! {wink}
