A Card in 45 Minutes.....


The challenge over at Forever Friends at the moment is to make a card in 45 minutes. This is perfect for me at the moment. With so many cards to make, I've got to make at least some of them quite quickly! I chose this fab image because it is so quick and easy to colour. The papers are from Wild Rose Studio. I had the large flowers for my birthday and bought the small ones at the NEC craft show. The pearls were from ebay and the ribbon is from my stash. The stamp is another of those clear Relations stamps from papermania that I couldn't live without!
This is (obviously!) for my Nan. It's her birthday in a few days and she's been quite poorly. She lives in rural North Wales, away from the rest of the family. She had a nasty fall a couple of weeks ago and broke her knee and has ended up in a care home for a bit. I hope she feels better for her birthday! Have a lovely day, Nan xx
Now, I'm not going to lie to you..... The glue wasn't dry, and I'm not even sure the ink was but it was definitely done in 45 minutes! I think I may employ similar tactics when making some of my other cards this week!
Hope you have a fab day! The snow is thawing here now so I may be able to get out this afternoon!
Love 'n' hugs,
Mel xx
