Thank you to everyone for your lovely comments and kind words on yesterday’s post.
I have another project to share which I made for the Crafty Individuals “Mini Masterpiece” challenge. There is lots of scope for this challenge and it runs for the month of July so I hope you will have time to join in the fun.

I will run through quickly how I made this but if you have any questions please give me a shout using the comments box below the post.
I sanded both sides of a CD and drilled two holes in the top to
thread the ribbon through.
I cut two pieces of card the same size as the CD and attached these to the front and back of the CD using Gel Medium.
When the gel medium on the card was completely dry, I drilled through the card and the previously made holes in the CD and threaded the ribbon through.
I attached the fancy edging ribbon using a hot glue gun.
I cut four smaller circles, two out of card and two out of
CI pretty background papers.
I glued one paper circle to one of the card circles and the other paper
circle to the other card circle.
I then attached these, front and back, to the CD using foam pads, trapping a small length of ribbon at the bottom on the front.
All stamped images have been stamped onto white 350 grm card stock.
I stamped the clock face using black Archival ink and then over stamped this with the crackle pattern using brown Archival ink.
I stamped the tea pot, cups and sentiment, coloured them and then cut them out.
I did cut the saucers away from this stamped image as I only wanted to use the cups.
The little hands of the clock have been cut out from silver mirror card using a die. Unfortunately they look black on this photo.
I then assembled the piece starting with the paper doily, adding the clock including the hands, the tea pot, the cups and the little sentiment. All of these pieces where attached using foam tape.
Alternatives: Change the focal piece and embellishments to make Christmas or Easter decorations.
