Mummy's Say…..

Bed Time! My most favourite time of the day - getting the kids to bed! 
Peace and quiet and time for me! 
But you know Amelia always plays up - finds an excuse why she can't go to sleep…. 
So now thanks to the wonderful 13 Days of Halloween Challenges over at Simply Challened Challenges - 

Simply Challenged Challenges

my daughter has no excuse not to go to bed…. Because the mummy's say so! 

Yep I have made a working clock! And I will be using it to get Miss A to bed! 
I purchased a kit a while ago and have never got round to using it - at first this challenge stumped me - as the theme is Wrapping Things up - using gauze! Now everything I could think of - everyone had done - and I didn't want to do a card - I thought and thought and then this morning it came to me! 

I used clear drying glue to hold the gauze and then stained it with coffee (I hate coffee - the smell of it is still lingering!) Now the glue hasn't quite dried so you can still see some white bits - but they are slowly drying! I merged the images on the computer and printed, then I coloured them with copics! Then it was the fun bit of putting the clock together! Well I hope you like it.  I would like to enter this creation to
