Ooops it's Tuesday!

Well I knew really of course but havn't had time to do the Tuesday Taggers post till now, been in Harrogate with my youngest son Liam, helping him get his new house into some semblance of order!

Well Tuesday Taggers!  My theme choice this week, Old Father Time.  It's at this time of year we all become more aware of the passing of time. Having the benchmark of Christmas and the New Year gives us something to measure our Rise (or decline) against.  It's been a strange Christmas for me with my youngest son spending his first Christmas away from home with his new wife and my eldest son returning to the fold after many years 'absense' due to his addiction problems. Bitter sweet all of it but above all filled with love, and a great deal of gratitude for having the friends and family around me to inspire such feelings.  That's all there is when all's said and done, our feelings for each other. They are what makes each moment worth living!

Ok emotional breakdown over on on to business!!!!!!!

Old Father Time - could have kicked myself for setting this challenge as I have only one stamp with an old man on and this is it!

It is of course Leonardo Da Vinci from the Katzelkraft Da Vinci Plate - one of my favorite stamps at The Craft Barn and thats quite appropriate as they are sponsoring a £15 prize on Tuesday Taggers this week.

The large text is of course a paper artsy stamp but the smaller text is from an elusive images set, such a lovely sentiment.

I hope Old Father Time has been gentle with you this year and offers his services to you to allow you 'time' to join in at Tuesday Taggers!  (groan - how corny!)

Wish I could send you a little of the excitement I feel today in the possibilities stretched out before me, in the start of a new year.

Much Love to you all
x Michelle
