 The mini stamp set we have for you this month is:
"Take Time Mini"
                 

Here's the Design Team:
This is one of the first things that I thought of when I saw the pocket watch images.  I knew that I wanted to make time fly.  So I stamped and colored the whole pocket watch image from the background and then trimmed it out.  I embossed some wings from the mini set of the same name.  I attached my wings and allowed my time piece to fly.  I accessorized with some gold textured paper, black burlap twine and a couple of white brads.  A border punch of the top and bottom edges finished off my card.
 
Hope you have a wonderful day!  Don't forget to check out what Sue has in store for you.

Love the theme and the way your time is flying - fun card. The border you chose works so well with your wings.
