Awhile back I colored an image by Simply Betty from the Steampunk collection called Clocks, I wanted to do something different than a card with it so I colored 3 more from the Steampunk collection and put them in a frame. I was so pleased with how they turned out ( yes, I am patting myself on the back) a frame seemed appropriate. They were colored with Prismacolored pencils and Gamsol .
 I hope you enjoy looking them over, let me know what you think.

 They are not the best photos ,but you get the idea. I'll try in the morning for better shots.

OOPS, i seem to have totally missed,,,,,,

my DT responsibility this week, better late than never I guess. This
week at Dutch Dare is a Photo Inspiration Challenge ( gorgeous colors) . Stop on by and show us what you can make out of this inspiration,  a wedding card ? a snow card? a winter card? the possibilities are endless. I turned my mistake of forgetfullness into a belated birthday card.

I used the adorable image from Sassy Cheryl ,I think she expresses how I felt when I realized that I had forgotten to do the DT assignment. This weeks' challenge is being sponsored by Kelly ( our extremely tolerant leader , hint hint) Click on her name above to see how she is sponsoring the challenge.
