RS39/10 minute #7

So here's hoping that everyone who celebrates, had a great Thanksgiving and a successful black Friday. I didn't shop yesterday as we had our second Thanksgiving dinner! Wouldn't have gone out anyway - too crazy! Leftovers are great - no cooking at least until Monday! Today I am putting dishes back up on the top shelves of the cupboards, and paper crafting! Woohoo! I made a birthday card for one of the granddaughters, and will play along with Retro Sketches #39 and the 10 Minute Craft Dash #7.  This was a really, really fast card. Once I gathered my materials, this card took me only 9.47 minutes to make. I will admit that I made a test card, but changed up some of the design, and materials, so that the card you see here is the final, under 10 minutes card.


This is what I used: SU ink, stamp, Baja Breeze cardstock, corduroy brads, and ribbon. MME Moments navy patterned paper, a scrap of kraft cardstock, and Crystal Stickers blue bling. It seriously took less than 10 minutes to make. Kinda fun to try! Happy dances everyone.

Thanks Caroline. I can't take credit for the sketch, but I like it so much that I will probably use it again! Bev

Thanks Carol. SU's Baja Breeze has been one of my top 5 colors since it came out. I'll admit to hoarding a bit for those special cards and layouts. Glad you stopped by. Bev

Thanks Kim. The colors are from the 10 minute craft dash. But since they're some of my favorites, I couldn't resist playing. Bev

Oh wow! The corduroy brads look amazing! Beautifully tied bow. I love how you used two banners of various lengths - that is such a good idea!

9.47 minutes - impressive card/impressive time :)

This card is BEAUTIFUL! That ribbon is so yummy and I'm loving those corduroy brads!

Thank you for joining in the 10 Minute Craft Dash. I hope you'll play along in my challenge again!

Thanks Geri. Using the RS sketch really helped. And I'm learning to use my hoard of favorite papers, ribbons, brads...and boy, that's hard to do! Cold here this morning. Made me think of you in Dauphin. Stay warm my friend. Bev

Thanks Paulina. I'm really glad you started the 10 MCD. It's a great challenge and I do plan on playing again! Hope you are feeling better. Blessings, Bev.

This is gorgeous, Bev! I love these shades of blue together, and the skewed label with the banners behind it looks great. Such a unique design and beautifully done!

Happy Dance said...

Thanks Christina. The navy patterned paper is one of my new favorites, and I'm trying not to hoard it! I'm glad you stopped by. Bev
