This was more or less the sketch from last week's challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments, and I CASE'd the style of Diana Eichfeld with her pretty challenge winner.
My husband collects clocks, so the cuckoo clock from Forever Young was perfect. And "Love always" was layered from a retired Valentine set, Affection Collection. I used an interesting die cut that complemented the shaped of the clock, and added woodgrain embossing.
I think what he said was, "Wow, baby, you really did a nice job!" :D I get that a lot. Haha.
So, pull out those old stamp sets, blow off the dust, and ink them up!
