Time Too.....

Morning blogging buddies.

Can't tell what the day's going to be like today as I'm up too early, goodness know's why, just woke up, mind you, the birds singing might have had something to do with it, they are making a right racket, sounds like they're falling out over something, mustn't complain though as it is lovely to have them in the garden even though hubby spends a small fortune on nut's seeds and the like, he has quite a variety of stock for them in the shed, spoilt rotten they are, they get quite a feast from our garden.

I'm out with a friend today, a bit of retail therapy, we'll have a spot of lunch somewhere too so that will be nice. "We'll be calling in at 'The Range' so lets see if I manage to get round there without buying something from the craft department!

Talking of which......onto crafting....

Hi Jacee, gorgeous card as ever.
Love the background with all the clocks and love that image.
BTW i'm just like your hubby, i spoil the birds in the garden with an abundancy of goodies too. LOL. Have a wonderful day out with your friend. I'm still bitten by the darn bugs and dreadfully ill. Sigh.
Hugs Veerle xx

Another beauty Jacee and see I missed a beauty in the blue one below (sorry for the no show last week but slowing getting back into things).

Enjoy your day out, a bit of retail therapy is always good.

Stunning card Jacee, as always everything so beautifully matched together. Have a great day out with your friend and good luck getting out of the Range empty handed (I never do).

Sounds like you have a fab day planned Jacee, I'd say try not to spend too much but that's what retail therapy is all about :) There are some lovely new lines in at The Range at the moment which just happened to fall in to my basket the other day, just sayin' :)
On to your lovely card though, what a cute image and your pocket watch looks great with the glossy accents on the glass. A beautiful card for those awkward to make male birthdays (well I find them difficult anyway). Enjoy your day!

Hi Jacee,
oh this is gorgeous.
Love the fab design,images, and paper used in this.
I do hope you enjoy your retail therapy.
I wish I had a Range nearer me.
I may live in the heart of Kent, but the town I live in is hopeless for any shopping, and now our only craft shop has shut. Boo Hoo.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

coldwaters2 said...

Hi Jacee I must admit that I spoil the birds as well, I buy the suet pellets by the bagful, but it pays off with so much activity and singing, when I am up at 4.30 am I love to stand at the back-door and hear the dawn chorus, lol. Jacee I always, without exception, fall in love with your creations, this one is beautiful that image, the papers and design also the colours are awesome, so all that is left for me to say is I LOVE IT.

Fabulous card and I love the matching envelope - what a great combination.

Have fun shopping, I bet you by something from The Range, I can never go there without buying loads from the craft department.

Michelle said...

This is gorgeous - I love the layout and the cute teddy. It probably was the birds that woke you. They wake me up here too! Michelle x

MaryH said...

Another delightful image, and the clock face looks like it has so much dimension. Love the stitching and the DP that matches so nicely with the Teddy & his tic toc. Also like the way you've done the layout. We're seeing our yellow finches become brilliant yellow and they are enjoying not only the Nyger seed we have in a feeder, but also guzzling down the sunflower seeds we have for the other birds. TFS & Hugs

Pia S said...

Jeanne said...

Hi Jacee, thanks so much for stopping by my blog and leaving kind words about my card. I appreciate it! What a lovely card you've made here. It's nice and masculine, cards that are more difficult to do. I like how you added the glossy accents to the watch. That teddy is adorable, too. I had a nice peek around and you do some lovely work. I'll be back for sure. Hope you had a grand time on your retail therapy expedition! Thanks again! Jeanne

Darnell J Knauss said...

I don't just like, I love it, Jacee!! But then I always love your cards! I hope you had a fun time shopping! I suspect you might be right about the spoilt birds outside in the early dawn raising a ruckus because they want your mister to get out there and replenish their goodies!! Enjoy the weekend!! Hugs, Darnell
