Sociable Saturday

The challenge on Tilda & co has been giving me a headache all week cos I really didn't have a clue, clock hands has been a suggested but you still have to incorporate them somehow so this is what I decided. I cut out the numbers with the cricut and using them as a template made the shape of the card, the papers are really old but are Making Memories which I cut using George cartridge in the cricut. I've used acetate for the inside of the number and run it throughthe cuttlebug with the swiss dots folder, finished off with my favourite Tilda. I do have a bit of a tip though avoid using new chalk eyes they're far too juicy and I got myself in a right pickle. Meet Argyll isn't he cute, he arrived Friday morning wasn't expecting him at all but apparently he comes free when you spend so much money at Cuddly Buddly ( lets keep that a secret since my Sister drops me in it far too often) and the reason I brought from Cuddly Buddly well instead of blaming Fran it was Nessy with some fab Christmas cards using their latest Christmas stamps.
A quick tag with Tilda to add to the others using the leftover scraps from the card, the oval being the shape out of the zero

And many thanks to Kim for this great award, afraid no time to sort it out off to a 12 crop and have to leave very early Saturday morning which is the reason for an extra Friday post and I've still got my Totes to pack!

The weathermen say it going to be warm and sunny Saturday but they've been saying that all week and its been grey, dark and dismal the only consolation is it hasn't rain.
