The first was one of my first "out of the page" projects using my Cricut and my Pagoda cartridge (Christmas gift! :) ). Here is my first stab at it. The flower/kanji pressed plastic was part of a closeout special I had purchased. I'm not sure what you were to do with it but as the press board clock already had the whole, I thought it would work.
After looking at it for a few months . . . and after the flower/kanji press fell off and finally stayed off, I got time tonight to not only repair but embellish some more. It was too blah, I had found a kanji stamp I wanted to incorporate and I wanted to make sure I remembered what the kanji meant. Here is the updated clock.
My good friend and pastor (and her family) is leaving on Sunday and as a gift for her (and an excuse to try it), I made her this:
The butterflies are amazing (if I do say so myself) using a realistic older CTMH stamp set, Cocoa ink, brown embossing powder and some liquid glass stiffened thread, I think they were convincing. The twig is from a tree up north, moss on a roll, a little hot glue and ribbon and an old jelly jar and I made her day.

I also spent last night straightening and rearranging my craft "corner" . . . doesn't look too bad, huh?
