January is such a strange month in my head - often grey and flat after Christmas. I thought I had escaped this feeling this year but it has hit with a vengence this week. Nothing feels quite right and I am finding it hard to motivate myself to actually get on and 'do' the ideas in my head. It hasn't helped that life has happened and worry and rushing have encroached once more. It will pass and and the current will ebb and flow.

Anyhow, I have got myself to do the Craft Mad and Loving It challenge set by the lovely Rosie (who has bounced back after a difficult period) a smashing sketch and twist - Mirror, Mirror.

I have to say this card reflects my mood and I am not entirely happy with it but it did allow me to play with the Rock Candy Crackle Paint on the clock faces which was funky. The stamp is the Craft Stamper Mag feebie which is ace.

Here is the clock face with Crackle Paint and DI.

Here is the clock face with just DI.

Here is the card - the sketch and theme are just about there!!!!

Hope you are having a more bouncy Tigger-like January.



  1. Love what you've done with the clock faces, Cherry.
    I know just what you mean about January....such a cold,grey,dismal month....tend to feel like that in Feb as well....before everything comes back to life in March.

  2. Lovely Cherry :) I hope you are ok and things get better for you soon.
    Big hugs,
    Katie x
