Time Flies!!

Morning all... - coo, you sound like Dixon of Dock Green!! - it's a special one today because it's my daughter's 40th birthday... where did the time go I wonder?? She was an emergency C-section, in the end, and they ran down the corridor!! They even asked my Pete if they should save mother or child!! He valiently chose mother, or so he always said!!! She was born on Friday lunchtime and I did not see her again until Sunday morning... but what a thrill. She was, and still is a beautiful girl, and everything a mother could want in a daughter...

So here is a card I made for her and a little plaque to keep, without the 40 on!!!!
 Papers are from my precious Tattered Time stack by DCWV, slightly altered with distress inks in worn lippy and the NEW peacock, which I LOVE LOVE LOVE!!! What a vibrant colour and a wonderful match with the Vintaj Patina verdigris...
 This closer view shows my steampunk elements with little touches of the VP.
 This is the part of the card that gives me the title "Time Flies"... well it has flown since she was born. Positively my BEST ever gift... The clock stamps are all from The Artistic Stamper, as is the butterfly.You last saw it used on my polymer clay piece for their team blog...
 Better views of the other clocks and the cogs etc are from the lady who does ECO paints, but I can't remember her name, unfortunately...
 This is the matching wall hanging. Roughly 8"x8", I used the same Tattered Time papers but from the matte stack... I made more flowers like the ones for my TIO tag and some more TH elements to punk it up!! There is a central pont where the time swirls round and round...
 Vintaj Patinas played a large part here for the colour, and the ickle metal flowers are theirs too...
All these flowers are cousins of the ones I made for the last TIO tag... I must admit to recycling the book plate piece, but have mounted it onto a Wendy Vecci watch part, to continue the time theme...

One good piece of news to report - well for me anyway!!! - is that I can start the process for getting my right knee sorted, as soon as next Thursday... let's hope they get on with it quickly!!! Then both hips and both knees will be fully bionic, tee hee...

Thanks for coming along and looking nad Happy Birthday, Miranda
Love and Light
Frankie

What a truly lovely card and plaque (and how thoughtful not to have the 40 on it!) I think this is just incredible. I'm worried about my maths though as if you have a 40 year old daughter that puts you about 30 years older than I'd guessed you were!!! Hope she enjoyed her special birthday!
