Let's Have A Quirky Time!

Evening Quirky fans! It's new challenge time over on The Quirky Crafts Challenge blog. Cazzy has been busy setting up the new theme and this time she has chosen...
It's All About Time!
We are sponsored this challenge by The Cutting Cafe who have kindly supplied us with some of their files to work with.
Here's my creation... printer's been out of ink for a while and new ones haven't worked but at last the computer said 'yes' and it allowed me to print. 
Nervous that it would stop at any second and start chewing up the paper and spitting out black ink everywhere, which is what it's been doing, I decided to put all the things I wanted to use on my creation into Word and layer them up in there.  This is quite layered up with card (Black, lilac and lavender) but the actual digi's are flat, including the sentiment. 
In my Quirky file was also a Bugaboo image, Stella sipping her Martini on the Rocks, which I felt just had to go on too.  So it did. (Cazzy might get her big stick out) but the beauty of that too is part of the one print out. (actually, when you think about it, it saves on glue!!)
I had a tiny bit of tape measure ribbon so that's gone on too and also added a real paper clip and a couple of brads.
I've added cog die-cuts and embossed clocks onto some silver miri card, there's also a clock charm, which I'm sure came from Crafts Beautiful Magazine a few weeks ago. 
Unfortunately, the printer packed up after only two printings, so the inside was made up with what I already had and the bits left over. 
The card's had a tiny bit sliced off the front so you can see the silver clock embossing on the inside.
The sentiment and all the papers came from Cutting Cafe. Any colouring, there's not much, was done with Promarkers. 
That's it I think! So all you have to do now is nip over to Quirky Crafts, go and make something, and then come and join in! Easy!! Thank you for stopping by! Hoping to add this to a few ...
