Lord Tim of Holtz Inspired

Morning folks and no more disasters in the cubbyhole I am pleased to say....frantically touching wood and good news in the Big Shot saga....I got an e-mail apologising for the problems I had and advising me that the errant machine would be picked up by courier and I will get a full refund and no-one was more surprised than me when the courier turned up yesterday morning just as I finished parcelling it far so good.....looks like the "declare war" hat will be winging it's way back to the cupboard and no more motorised die cutters for me.....reverting back to the old...much more reliable...turn the handle Big Shot.     And despite my traumatic evening I did manage to finish my Lord Timmie of Holtz project for the challenge this week over at Simon Says Stamp & Show

I decided to make a little wall hanging for the cubbyhole because when I'm in there....time does indeed just fly.....I can lose myself for hours just playing with some of my favourite crafty stuff and Tim's stuff comes right up there at the top of my favourites list

Papers: Tim Holtz Paper Stack: Vintage Shabby
Stampers Anonymous...Tim Holtz Collection...Shabby French
Grunge Paper
Texture Fade....Dot Matrix
Distress Crackle Paint...Antique Linen
Tim Holtz Idea-ology...Game Spinners 
Tim Holtz Distress Inks....Brushed Corduroy....Walnut Stain...Barn Door
Alterations:  Elegant Flourishes...Caged Bird
Grungeboard Alphabet Soup
Adirondack Paint Dabber....Snow Cap
Decoart.....Glamour Dust
and the must use product of the moment....the fabulous tissue tape guaranteed to be on every card until you are all sick of the sight of versatile and very sticky.....I covered SU twill tape with it to make the ribbon but a little tip from's just like a roll of sellotape so once you are finished bend a little bit back on itself....makes it easy to find the end again.....I didn't and it took me about 10 mins of fingertip touchy feely all round the roll before I could use it again.
And have you heard the news that the lovely Linda Elbourne...yes the queen bee over at Simon Says Stamp and Show now appears on the Lord's blog roll.....oh wow how excited she must be and at this moment is probably still stuck to the ceiling....but what I want to know.....what took him so long as her work is totally totally Timmiefantastic.  Catch up with you all later
Hugs Kath xxx
Edited to add: to answer your isn't a working clock but it could can buy the necessary stuff from HERE

Wow Kath, this is brilliant, is there a clock mechanism at the back, these would make great pressies. Hope the weather is drier up there than down here in the midlands, its a bit damp! Take Care Julie x

Kat said...

This is stunning Kath. I love it. I'd love to have a play today after doing nothing since the weekend but DT cards are calling me first. Didn't get anything done while Catriona and the kids were here. They left after tea last night and luckily today's my day off. Think Maddy's missing her friend Missy. I seem to have a lot of her yellow Labrador coat floating about my hall though. Still tomorrow's another day lol!
