Dandelion clocks

Do you remember "telling the time" with dandelion clocks? I used to love doing that, which is probably why I love them so much - along with all kinds of flowers that take the same sort of shape, such as agapanthus and aliums.

This stamp, an old one from Blade Rubber, could represent any one of those plants, but today it is being a dandelion clock to match the papers which I printed out from one of my old favourite CDs, Now That's Funky from Funky Hand. I've stamped it in three colours to match the paper, added some layering on a Kraft card,  a stamped sentiment using, yet again,  the cover stamp from this month's Papercraft Essentials, and added a printed "ribbon" border from the same CD and some Candi as a finishing touch.

I'm sharing this with
CD Sundays - add a stamped image
Inkspirational - Anything goes with Kraft (how true, just about anything DOES go with Kraft, although I know they didn't mean it that way!)

Dandelion Clocks remind me of sunny summer days long past. Great card and the memories it stirred up made me smile.
