LIM week 82 - recipe 3-2-1

The challenge on Less is More this week is 3-2-1 - nothing to do with Dusty Bin! (Do those of you in the UK remember that?). Anyway, I am pleased as I have yet again managed to combine the challenge with the use of some stamps that haven't seen ink. They are from a set called Time I won them from the lovely Bev of Uniko Stamps and they are her own design. Pop over to her site as she also has super free Saturday......
I used TH inks pumice stone, vintage photo and antique linen. I stamped directly onto the card apart from the watch which I stamped and cut around and then mounted onto the card with foam pads.
I've used :-
three cogs
one watch
and the word "Times" twice

I have finally got a referral to the hospital for my vertigo/vestibular migraine for October. Luckily I am in a private health plan so have been able to make an earlier appointment for early September. I ventured into Town this morning as I have been getting my hours up at work and managed 5 hours a day this week, with not too many problems. I started to feel sick after being out for about half an hour, and then at the top of the escalator in M&S everything went round just before I got on it. I was fortunate that there was no queue behind me as it was early, because I had to step back and get my bearings before being very brave and getting back on. Roll on the hospital appointment!
I'd also like to enter this card into Creative Inspirations Challenge - sentimental.

Lovely card, but I bet all your other UK readers old enough to remember are now trying to remember how to do that 3-2-1 gesture without looking rude! I certainly am.

Hope your hospital appointment comes through soon and you are soon better.

Beautiful card, Lynn. Great shape - perfect for the cogs. Sorry to hear you are still struggling with the vertigo. Hope they sort you out very soon.

Lynne said...

Stunning card Lynn.
Sorry to hear you`re still suffering. My dad had vertigo years ago, terrible condition.
As for the thunder storm...I normally love a good thunder storm and watch out of the window, better than bonfire night for me. But being in the loft with the thunder directly above us was another thing altogether. It was a bit exciting though lol
