This week's challenge at the {Pin}spiration blog was a photo of an old clock set into a brick wall. I usually try to find inspiration other than the "obvious" in the photo. It is part of the fun of the challenge for me as well as an exercise in creative thinking. However, this week my Muses just weren't cooperating, and as much as I looked at the photo and tried, the clock was the thing that my eye kept seeing. So, I finally gave up and went with the time/clock theme.

My image is a freebie from a site I found some time ago called Digital Thursday. The site offered a number of vintage images, and I have to admit that I really am rather fond of the older, timeless images. I think I've always been an "old" mind in a "young" body. There is always something romantic about times past.

Anyway, I colored my image using Copic markers. The card base is black, and the DP is from a pad from Lost & Found Two by Jen Allyson called "Sunshine." I've had the clock dies for some time, and the manufacturer's label is gone, but I remember buying them at Michael's Crafts in the collage section. The orange flower is also from Michael's and was in a set called Boutique Fleur by Recollections. The sentiment was typed on my computer.

I am entering the card in the challenge at and here is the inspiration photo.
