Now...here is my creation...

I used the Save Time Stamp Set, as well as Time.  I created a window card, putting my clock image inside and cutting the window with a Spellbinders Classic Circle Large.  The base is Kraft and the designer paper is Bo Bunny Timepiece.  I sponged  and antiqued with Tim Holtz Distress Inks, and tied on some black linen twine. The little brad is also T Holtz.  Very simple, but it was for my hubby so I needed to keep it masculine. 





Here are the stamps I used:



Thanks so much for stopping by!  Now I will send you on to sweet & super talented Chris!

Wowzers Grace! I love everything about this masculine gem! I love how you stamped the image on the inside yet it can be seen through your well planned design. The rich red, touches of aging and design elements create such a wonderful and powerful piece of art! Beautifully done! Hugs and blessings...
