LIM weekly challenge "Take time......!"

Good morning and how are you this Monday morning?
It is dreich in every case of the word this morning so I am on here avoiding my early morning walk with the dog, in the hope that it clears a little before I go out.  If it doesn't I have a funny feeling that the dog and I are going to get very wet.
How was your weekend?
I had a busy day at work on Saturday but a nice relaxing day yesterday watching the sport and crocheting.  Didn't Murray do well in the tennis?

On to today and I have decided to join the lovely gang over on the LIS Challenge blog.  This weeks challenge is the word time and one layer.
I have stuck to one layer, however I couldn't control the urge to add a couple of embellishments at the end, in the form of daisies.

The lighting not the best this morning for my photograph with the beautiful summery weather that we are having.
I  have used stamp set Enjoy life by IndigoBlu together with a Spellbinder die to create an embossed frame around the sentiment.  I have inked a little Distress Squeezed Lemonade around the frame whilst still in place to create depth.  Finally colouring the words with my copic markers and adding a couple of punched daisies with gems.
I do love this sentiment, we could all take more time to make daisy chains, something I did a lot as a child.
Do girls still do this now?  I bet they don't.

It is now "time" for me to go and get wrapped up to walk the dog and then I have a shift in work later today.  Enjoy your Monday and more from me tomorrow.

A lovely single layer card, I find these scary to do. Love the sentiment stamp and inking you have added, very pretty card.

Fabulous sentiment and such a fresh, pretty feel to this card. (Yes, I remember making daisy chains!) The soft yellow is perfect and the daisies were a great addition, definitely the right way to go. Fab entry!

Super sentiment and a lovely simple design!
I must make daisy chains with my granddaughter this summer...she's called Daisy!
