365 Cards - Day 361: 20 Minutes

Hello stampers!!  It's Friday, Friday!  That means I get to share a new card with you from 365 Cards!  Today's challenge -- "20 Minutes".  Create a card, any card, in 20 minutes or less.


Now I admit I am not all that fast of a stamper, in general.  Of course when there's coloring involved, most of us probably aren't.  So how do we make a "quickie" card?  I have found 3 ways that I can manage it.  1) use an image that looks ok in just outline form, but dress it up with paper and embellies. 2) use a large sentiment and no "picture" image. 3) use stickers or other pre-made embellishments for your main image(s).  I chose #3 this time, using these cute cardstock stickers from Sassafrass Lass and adding in a small sentiment at the bottom (Paper Pretties)! 




I will admit this took me 22 minutes.  There was an issue with the embellies I chose for the bottom corner originally; they just weren't working right, and I had to dig into the button drawer for replacement options.  I think we can all understand how that would take awhile, right??  :)


Alright, that's what I've got for today!!!  Day 361 you guys!!  Next week will be part of the new 365 year!!  Happy stamping, don't forget to link up on the 365 Cards Blog so we can all see YOUR quick-card skills! 


3 people made my day!:
