Hero Arts Something New

This month's challenge over on the Hero Arts blog includes a theme of "New"... be it a new stamp, a new technique, a new colour scheme.   My "new" was a stamp I recently purchased.

Clock collage

I used some Neenah Dessert Storm card and stamped the watch gears in each corner with Cup'o'Joe ink.  The sentiment is also from Hero Arts.   I trimmed the panel and matted onto some black card before adding to the card base.   I added some white faux stitching and some red Kindyglitz to the hearts.  In the centre of some of the gears, I added Glossy Accents.

This was actually the second time I did the main stamping.  My first attempt got smudged.  Rather than chuck it out, I cut some of it up into an ATC

Watch Gear ATC

I stamped the "Celebrate" where I smudged it.  I'll probably make a card to put this one at some stage.

My exercise programme is going well... expect for yesterday when I had a dodgy tummy... didn't make it to the gym.  So did a half hour walk in the 26C heat at lunch time and 30 mins on the exercycle tonight.  Had my blood tests today so hoping all this exercise has reduced my blood sugars..  Just have to wait till Friday morning to find out.

Hope all is going well  in your  part of the world.   Summer is well and truly here, it's been nice and warm.   Hoping it stays till the weekend, as it's Auckland Anniversary on Monday and a day off!!!  Yeah!  We are heading off to the beach with our friends....

Thanks for stopping by.

I didn't realise how beautiful this stamp was until I saw what you did with it here! Gorgeous on kraft!

Spectacular card Dawn. I love this time image and good for you for transforming the mistake into an ATC.....something I never think of doing (but have an embarrassing amount of "mistake" cards that I could save that way!) I hope your blood sugars are down! I know how hard that is to do. My daughter is really struggling with hers right now too!

Fantastic! You and I had the same idea with this stamp. :) Love how it looks on the kraft background. Beautiful!

If you approach this from the viewpoint that the man may have a low sperm count, you may miss the fact that the woman may be low in folic acid.
Colombia sociologist, Peter Bearman says they do not know what causes this correlation but he finds the association 'really profound'.
