TIME FOR ... "blank"

What time is it?

It's your time!

What time is it?

It's my time!

What time is it?

Time to make decisions, live each moment, enjoy life, be a better person and celebrate life!

What time is it?

It's Friday time!!!! Wooohoooo!  The first Friday of this December!

First of all let me tell you:  Happy Friday! (You can't hear me screaming, but you can try and imagine me dancing while saying it!)

It's been a rough week at work, full agenda, a lot of things to do for the weekend...  well... what can I say?  Such is life.

I made a card with my newest stamps from Unity... some from the "wine" edition and others I got randomly from a grab bag (there's never one of these I don't like and I love it's a surprise).  This was specially made thinking of Friday Friends with Flair, but you won't believe this.  When I finished the card, I checked on some emails and blogs and saw the current Unity KOM Sketch.  It must had been I've seen it and loved it, but my card very much resembles that sketch even though I made it all from scratch.  But maybe it is God that knows I also wanted to participate in the challenge and support it... so I will post it there also.

I wanted to use the wine glass clock with the nice sentiment "it's wine o'clock" but also wanted to give a twist to the message... so I decided to use these earth colors and tones that with some distressing and ink help, transport me on time and give me the impression of history...  

Then I added this other sentiment and helped with another stamp image.  For me it's kind of funny to say it's wine o'clock but then immediately provided room for a more serious message saying "live each moment".   And since for me, a wine moment is sacred, I love the result...(it's like "live each drop" LOL!)



This is the sketch, for your reference and in case you want to participate and support this challenge, get more info by clicking on the image.  Prizes are great and even if you don't win, you'll have a blast getting all the inspiration... and who knows?  Maybe you get the surprise of winning like I did last week, when this:   Christmas card won!  Woohoo!


I hope you too love it (or at least I gave you some inspiration for that project you've had in mind for a while... or inspiration to make a decision to live that "something you have in mind" now!)

Have a grrrrrrrrreattttt Friday!

Isn't it crazy when crafty minds think alike? There was one week a while ago when I saw 3 nearly identical sketches for 3 different challenges - and you know how far ahead those things are set! Kind of awesome in a way :)
I totally LOVE this sentiment (and swear to peanuts have SAID it many a time, lol) And live each drop? Indeedy!
