You must have all been there, your other half has asked you to make a card for some occasion and you've said 'yes..yes I'll get it done' and then that request has gone clean out of your head until the moment when they say 'that card needs to be in the post tomorrow' and it's 10pm and you're thinking about going to bed after a long day..No? Well it happened to me last night. As I said in my last post I don't get to make cards that often that people actually receive so you would think that I would be right on top of one that needs making...wrong! I am so wrapped up in work at the moment I don't have much time to do anything else, never mind remember to make a card as ordered by my OH!
Well anyway there I was last night at my craft desk trying to make a decent looking anniversary card for Ians parents in less than 10mins as that was pretty much all the time I could stay awake.. and you know I was rather pleased with the results. (Please accept my apologies for the poor quality photograph but I had to take it this morning before it went into the post and the light was even worse than I thought it was.. this is the result of some serious photoshop messing..you should have seen it before!!)
Why is it that you can pull together something pretty simple but really effective from the stash you can find lying on your craft desk but when you have all the time in the world no inspiration comes? Annoying but very true..in my case anyway!!
The backing paper is from my not yet released download which I will be back to tell you about in a future post and the chipboard heart is covered with a paper from my CD Funky Daze (which you will be able to see more of next Tuesday at 11am if you tune into Ideal World) The ribbon and buttons were all just sitting lonely on my craft desk and they worked perfectly!
Now I'm off to sit in my craftroom and spend another few hours trying to come up with demonstration cards that wont be half as nice as my 10 min creation!!
I didn't realise that todays challenge on Daring Card Makers Challenge Blog was to include a heart on your card..I must be psychic.. get yourself over there and join in!
Speak again soon.
