{PIN}spirational Challenge #18: Photo Inspiration - Clock

The older I get, the faster time seems to go. As a child, I dreamed of everything I would do, see & create! It would be fantastic & fun.

Well, it is. Yeah, it definitely is, but it's also a lot of other things like paying bills, buying groceries, cleaning house & what seems to be an endless stream of other work. This is why it's important to stop & smell the roses, & definitely - always - enjoy the journey.

I had previously made the card bases, so I decided to finally use them & create a little set. I'll be including a card with purchases from my shop, Pin & Tack, until they are gone. It's always lovely to receive a little gift with purchase :)

These mini cards were inspired by the challenge from {PIN}spirational Challenges. We were asked to create something using this photo as inspiration. This photo offers A LOT of ideas with its rustic textures & colored tiles, but I decided to stick with the most basic element, the clock.

We would love for you to create something as well & share it with us! We have a wonderful sponsor, Stitchy Bear Digital Stamps, this week, so you may win a prize for your creativity.

Here is a rustic creation that I made previously. It's base is actually craft sticks that I painted & pieced together for a "plaque."

Love set of cards! The blue is so striking. I love the the sentiment and you are right, it is so important to enjoy the journey but it's so easy to forget when you get bogged down by the mundane stuff.

Thank you for sharing with us at Make It Monday this week.
