Stampman Design Team - Lead Week

Hi Readers... back on Firefox to upload my pics... what a pain blogger is at times eh?? But at least it puts me back in business.

So today, it's my turn to lead the Stampman Challenge blog DT for the next game.. The theme Jill chose for me was Time or Travel - well, right up my street eh?? So thanks Jill!!
 I decided to have a TH car as the focalpoint of my piece, which is 8x8...  I also used tickets and metal pieces of idea-ology.
 This is shot of the whole piece. Tickets, vintage photos, images of cars and related memorabilia...
 I made a compass and popped it on a chain with a threepenny bit charm.. There is a sun charm at each top corner.
 The all-important clock, to tell what time to depart for the next leg of the journey.... made from a Graphic 45 brass flower with TH bits and spinners added.
 The background paper is from 7 Gypsies, with a Union flag and a passport, appropriate for my journey along the scenic route.
So it now takes pride of place on my windowsill for a while, as inspiration in the coming weeks. I really had a quiet day, on and off, sitting planning, making and creating my piece, so I hope it helps to inspire those joining in Jill's challenge. She offers a great prize, so why not have a go and enter your own piece over there.

So there you have it. Thanks for coming to have a look, and I hope you will leave a comment.
Love and light
PS I would also like to submit this piece to the following challenges:-
