the quickest card I have ever made...

Good morning everyone I hope your all managing to stay warm, it was so cold here last night I thought it might snow, it was one of those nights when you just cant get warm, even the heating on, a hot water bottle and blanket didn't help...although Phil seemed to be ok, must just be the ice water in my veins lol...well we had pj success yesterday, I went to La Sensa and managed to get our Daughter two pairs of their lush pj's for the price of one and the lovely girl gift wrapped them for me into a box I would love to get too, I love girly touches like that don't you...my card for today took me exactly 4 1/2 minuets to make, how amazing is that, my Dad needed a card fast and I had a sheet of the Bo Bunny Father Christmas stickers and I have the 6x6 pad too so just stuck one of the stickers onto one of the papers and cut out, how quick is that then it was just a matter of layering up and adding some lush ribbon, a bow and a few buttons, I added a few holly leaves cut from ribbon too...I cant remember the last time I made a card that didn't have a coloured image on it, my Daughter wants a set of cards like this so I think I will just use the rest of the stickers to make them for her, could have them all done in an hour if I try hard...the fabulous sketch is from the Cards and Things challenge which is one I found through Feline Playful, that blog is a touch of genius isn't it...I'm also entering it for the Simon Says Stamp challenge and Craft your Days away challenge too...btw in case your wondering how I enter the challenges while I'm away I have a lovely friend who links them up for me...right I'm off to pack my distress inks and brushes as I'm going to catch up on some colouring while I'm away and there's a couple of new techniques I want to try too...whatever your up to today have a fantastic warm one

This is really pretty, nobody would believe you could create it that fast! It would take me that long to find the ribbon. Try to stay warm, or jump on a plane and come to Florida!

It might be quick, but it is so elegant! I love the idea of using the beautiful tags and stickers I have, but I tend to over-embellish and take away from the gorgeous details. You have once again inspired me! Hugs!
