Yet Another Birthday Card

I'm not sure what happened to making Christmas cards, but hey, at least I'm having fun  :)

I've been known to say 'whatever' in the past, but not for a long time, unless to myself!  Anyway, I saw a clock the other day with that word and just had to do it:

I used the sketch from Graphicat challenge blog, http://graphicatsketchs.blogspot.com/
My clock was a bit big, so I had to move the middle piece over a bit to see it  :)

I found some fabric--a bit bright--so turned it over, then decided to cut out some flowers for the inside using Tim Holtz Tattered Florals Die and Tim Holtz goodies for the 'hands' and film strip.

Thanks for looking, it was fun to make except for that film 'flower'.  That took a bit of thought, cut the strip in half and ended up sewing it on the bottom---it just kept bouncing everywhere  :) 


  1. What a great card and its not to late to enter over at Graphic cats so do it today. Looking forward to seeing you tomorrow. Take care

  2. WOW! Nancy this is AWESOME! I love that clock and the sentiment! Great job! Im so glad you joined the challenge over at Graphicat Sketchs! Great to have you!

  3. What a fun card, Nancy! I love the clock (I need to make a real one like that sometime!) and the flower details. Thanks for joining the Graphicat Sketch Challenge AND thanks for coming and making Christmas cards today- it was great to have you there!

  4. I like the "it's only a number" so true !

    your "Whatever" card is brilliant in every detail dear Nancy!


  5. LOL!! I LUV THIS!! You are such a clever card maker!! This made me laugh out loud ... the little numbers all over. So cute and the filmstrip is one of my favorite embellies. I must use more soon!! Thanks for reminding me!!!
