Custom Clock

I always had a thing for clocks and watches that had little characters on the face, so I thought it would be fun to try my little teddy bear from "Wee Tees" on Theresa's alarm clock from "Timeless Treasures", I've used colors and papers that would be perfect for a new mom.

This is such a fabulous quote about time and so many moments of mother- and babyhood are breathtaking to be sure! Background uses two prints from the Basic Grey Porcelain DP and Apricot for the base and ribbon. I found a piece of the lace trim on the print that was perfect for punching the threading water border along the bottom. The little clock is framed up in a classic and scalloped square Nestaibilties die cuts.

Try picking through your small stamp images to make a customized alarm clock, sure to bring a smile to someone's face!

P.S. I forgot to say that you make me want to but this set. I tried to be frugal with my last order. Frugal is good but it is no cure for the wants.
