US190, 10 MCD, CFC83

Quick post before the migraine escalates to the "please just shoot me now!" stage. Wanted to pop this very fast card into three challenges. First, Unscripted Sketches - 190, which has a really great sketch. Desperately wanted to play along as soon as I saw this, and today is the first day I've had to get into my craft room and play with paper. Love the DT over there!



I also wanted to get in on the 10 Minute Craft Dash, where Paulina has hooked up with CAS-ual Fridays #83, in a double-ish challenge. This card took me 9.38 minutes to make. Once I had all of my supplies at hand, I set the timer, and crafted like crazy! While the Cricut was cutting the little frames, I typed and printed my sentiment. I then took my scrap of white, trimmed it to just under 1 1/2", and stamped my snowflakes and snowman. I added a touch of green to his scarf and buttons. Cut them apart and adhered them to the frames. Trimmed my sentiment, inked the edges, adhered it to the green patterned paper, then the red and then onto the card base. Next it was the little frames, and finally the 3 blings. Viola! As my four-year-old granddaughter says, "easy-peasy, lemon squeezy." I highly recommend checking out these challenges and playing along!


Bazzill gray, white and red cardstock. Paper Studio green patterned paper, SU stamps. Memento London Fog ink. Lemon Chicken computer font. Crystal Stickers bling. Happy New Year and happy dances everyone!

Wow - under 10 minutes - amazing! Fabulous interpretation of the US sketch. Love the colors, especially the grey with the deep red and the vibrant green. You truly have a knack for combining colors & patterns!

I apologize for my late acknowledgement of your entry into Unscripted Sketches challenge :)

What a fun card, Bev! The layout is awesome- I'm so impressed you did all of this in under 10 minutes. You're such a pro at my challenge! :)

So glad you could join in this 10 Minute Craft Dash challenge. I hope to see you play in my challenges again in 2013!
