Better late than never! My Father's Day gift

Well, as usual, I'm a couple days behind. I'm meaning posting my Father's Day gift. Just had a ton to do so didn't have time to share with you my creation! I went to Tammy Shiroma's shop called "Once Upon a Blue Moon" on Sunday. She relocated and for the life of me, I just couldn't find her new location. So when I received an email from her advertising this cool spiral punch machine, I wanted to check it out. I had no intentions of buying that machine or anything else for that matter, but...........here's the rest of that story!
Tammy had a whole bunch of clocks on her table from her class the day before. They were so colorful and pretty and attracted my attention and I had to look closer and touch them and then I asked if she had any extras. Of course she had extra clocks! So "ding!" an idea clicked in my brain...I'll make a clock for Father's Day! I bought not only one but two...couldn't forget me! Here's what they turned out to look like (sorry about the glare on the pic). The numbers on the clock is an overlay by Heidi Swapp. Of course, everything else I had sitting in my stash!
My clock has my kitty's pic on it. Of course, it had to be pink with bling (from TLC) on it! I also used the ghost flower and chipboard flower that I distressed and painted. Added buttons on the flowers too. Chipboard alphabets from a Heidi Swapp bundle I bought from Costco a while back. TFL!
