Ok now that thats over with :) I am way behind and I apologize!!!!! Melanie You won last weeks challenge....Just email me your address and Your goodies will be on their way!!! Here is the first of my 10 min cards. I am going to a crop tonight and I plan to make a BUNCH more to post tonight :) fingers crossed I will actually be awake enough to do it!!! I also plan on scrapping some tonight which I havent done in a while. Its my first true love and I feel bad that I havent been doing it!! I recently read Ali Edwards Life Artist, I absolutly loved it. It renewed my spirit and reminded me of what was really important in my crafting life!!!! The card was made with thickers by American Crafts, Bazzil cardstock, some christmas ribbon from Michaels, Prima flowers, a button, and some left over patterned paper(dasiy D's) from an altered thing im making for my BFF swap with my 2 buddies. I stamped a background image on the cs with Tim Holtz embossing ink but it faded away???? Any one else ever had that problem???? The stamping not showing up kinda threw the cards balance off so im gonna have to fix it. I figured it would be like versamark but alas it was not :( Ok i gotta finish packing for my crop.......I'm gonna keep repeating "I will post when I get home" over and over LOL Lata buddies!!!!!!! CRAP spell check still isnt working!!!!!!!!!! BOO ON BLOGGER GET IT FIXED!!!!!!!!! I cant spell for nothin :)

Todays "wed challenge" is to create a card in 15 min. I went to a crop this past weekend and some scrappers were asking about cardmaking, to prove how easy it was I made a simple thank you card to match the altered project I had been working on that night. It took me all of about 10 min to make. Later on I was looking at the card, and I realized with a few changes the card could go from cute to WOW so I spent another 10 min on it. Mind you this was a few days later!! You dont have to revamp your card at all, Just make a quick card to remind yourself that youre in this hobby for the fun not to toil away for hours on one card!!! I will post my org. card along with my 10 min "revamped" version later today(Im waiting on a light box that I ordered to get here!!!) This challenge is open to any one that reads my blog. Just link to your card (or cards) in the comments and on wed I will pick a winner!!!! Have fun..........CREATE something today!!!!
