The Altered Alice - Time!

Blogger is still having problems with commenting and sign in for some users, so please if I don't comment, that is why.  I have added Firefox, but not sure how I like that.  It is not my computer or programs, it is Blogger, so that is good!

Now to the fun stuff!  I had a blast creating this card for The Altered Alice and the "Time" challenge.  Even more fun, because I got to play with one of my new Tim Holtz dies and used one of his techniques from "A Compendium of Curiosities."  If you don't have this book, run and get it.  Even if you are not a grunging fool, the techniques are amazing.  I used grunge paper for the die cut and stamped clock.  The smaller clock was cut with the Pinking Circle die from Spellbinders.  Way back, I saw my friend, Connie Paxman, use this for a clock piece and just thought how brilliant.  It works so well for clocks and gears!  All stamps are from Artistic Outpost's Wonderland Collage and I am linking this for the May referral on Artistic Outposts Blog.  Love this set!  The background paper is from G-45's "Halloween in Wonderland."  I embossed this with a Cuttlebug folder and then highlighted using Stampin Up White Craft ink.

Wishing all of you a wonderful weekend and for those celebrating Memorial Weekend, be safe!  Really appreciate your comments!

I love this piece! I'm a total sucker for gears and clocks and the dodo is the perfect finishing touch.

(On a side note, I've noticed that blogger tells me I'm not logged in to comment but if I do actually comment, it shows me as logged in - if that makes sense?)
