Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge presents a new scripture and challenge every Sunday. A visit to their blog is a good way to start a new week. This week's scripture: Esther 4:14 “For if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance for the Jews will arise from another place, but you and your father’s family will perish. And who knows but that you have come to royal position for such a time as this?" and as a challenge: Make a card or project using a time piece or in some way denoting time or the passage of time. This timepiece reminds me of my grandmother's pocket watch which was given to her by her husband as a wedding gift. Throughout her life, she carried it with her always -- and she celebrated 50 years of marriage. As her namesake, I was given the honor to continue the tradition. I now have her treasured pocket watch and this year, I will celebrate 50 years of marriage! It's all about time. " We listen, we laugh, we sigh, time flies by . . ." -- and so we must cherish each day! I am a real promoter of recycling and/or repurposing, and Kelly's challenge this week was "Go Green" and so I would like to share this project there too! When you go visit, be sure to see the tutorial on paper quilting. Yet another way to use bits and pieces! Gotta go -- time is flying!
Details: The watch was made from a soda can which I hand embossed -- added to that are layers of cuttlebug embossed metallic cardstock. The winder on the watch is a craft punch shell, gears and flourish corner are Ellison and Sizzlets - stamp by Stampendous.
