MMSC#114 - let's go back in time.

It is tuesday, normally my favorite day of the week, but today it is bittersweet.
Lovely Linda has been an inspiration for me ever since I started playing the MMSC. She has inspired me, not only when it comes to cards and crafting, but also through her laughs, her love for her family, her energy and for beeing the Queen of Comments!
I have a lot of good memories from our time as DT's together for the Midnight Madness Challenge, and I will cherish thoose for ever!
I wish you best of luck, and know that if you don't stay in touch - I will hunt you down!

Dear Linda - I will see you when i look at you!

Did you know that over at CDAC they have NEW Progressive Challenges Starting!  Vintage ATC Swap OPEN for sign ups and an awesome Mini Paper Bag Album Swap Open for sign ups. 
You still have plenty of time so head on over and check it out today!
I really think you should enter this swap! I am making an album now and I really have not had this much fun crafting for a long time!

For this weeks sketch I have made a card and a book that fits the card.
Be prepared for lots and lots of photos!

I close the book with a grungeboard hinge that I have covered with Distress Embossingpowder.
This locks into a pice of string.

Here is the inside of my book. I have stamped some text on both sides and then I have a butterfly form the Fluttersent set from Layers of Colors.

I have also added some hinges on the back of the book.

The clock is part of a paper that I don't remember where I got. i just cut it out. I think it is kind of cool with the crown on.
The red flowers are from Petaloo.

The card fits into the book, making it a nice giftset.

The card is decoraded with the same clock as the book. Flowers are from Petaloo.

Just a little closeup showing this gorgeous little butterfly charm!

Thank you so much for stopping by! 
I really hope that you will come play with us this week!
