TIM HOLTZ POCKET WATCH.....

Hi Everyone,

 I treated myself to the new pocket watch die from Tim Holtz, I hope you like what I have made with it!... I was thinking of making more of this style to hang on a banner in my craft room....
I am off work this week  (doctors orders) he's diagnosed Acute Bronchitis so started more antibiotics....that's what that cough is..... , so staying home & rest & CRAFT of course...


Thank you so much for your visit today....
Hugs May x x x

Your pocket watch is fabulous and it would make a great banner in your craft room, such a lovely idea. I think I 'need' that die now too..... Hugs, Anne x
