Tims tag June and a coffee pot make

Hello Lovelies - have you had a good day? I've had a great one - a run then playing with brushos at coffee pot, a swim and then some housework - not so fond of that bit - lol!!!! But it feels good to be one more first down - yesterday was very emotional - but thankfully its passed - and I can get on with things again.

So Tims tag June - I wasn't sure about this one - but I enjoyed the process - not sure about my outcome either lol!!! You can find Tims original here.

12 tags of 2015 - June by Tim Holtz |

Here's what I did:

I followed the tutorial - making up a custom pad using twisted citron, I used the tyre layering stencil - but didn't turn it through 90 degrees to get the plaid effect - and I used the alarm clock die.

I used a combination of chit chat stickers and the quote stickers to make a saying.

I cut the clock using the corrugated card and cork.

I would like to enter this into the timholtz12-tags-of-2015-june challenge.

I also wanted to show you what we all managed to do at coffee pot today too:

It wasn't quite the same as the original from craft stamper but I love it and the ladies loved it too - they think brushos are fabulous!!! Look out for more makes coming soon!

Hope you're having a good evening and thanks so very much for your kind words about my DT position - you're all really very kind! Thankyou!!!

Hugs rachel xx
