Challenge #40 for October is..........

..........TIME - and the twist is shabby chic!


Time can be many things - a moment, a place in the day, a memory.....this theme should let your imagination just roar!

...and that TWIST?
Are you game to work with that?

.....bows, inky look, pop up, punch art, flower punches, vintage look & lacey look.....

Just Google the phrase and you will see so many beautiful images - then just take out any stamped bits, and your inspiration to make an item for this challenge is there!

Remember, you can make a card but you can also make anything else that suits the challenge theme!
Just also remember - NO STAMPS to be used please.
