The Quickest Card Ever!

September 20th, 2010

Happy Monday!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend – I certainly did!  I had the opportunity to get together with some stampin’ buddies for the afternoon/evening on Saturday!  Jen Visser has been a friend for several years and fellow TESC Sketch Crew members Rachel Sztonyk and Lisa Hjulberg felt like old friends even though this was our first time to stamp together (in the same room as opposed to playing the sketch together.  LOL!)  We had a blast.  I had everything set up so they could try out the Cinch Machine and make a little notebook project.  Everyone brought images so we could stamp and take them home.  And of course we talked and talked and talked!

The Rocket Scientist was off to a family party celebrating the 16th birthday of an absolutely wonderful kid!  I told him Saturday morning that I would make a birthday card for him to take, but as the girls arrived I didn’t have it done yet.  TRS was in a hurry to get out the door so I needed to whip up something quick.  I don’t know about you, but I’m not very creative amongst a lot of tanner-bday-2010-jami-small.jpgchatter, not to mention time pressure.  I excused myself to my stamp room to put something together.  Anyone who knows me, knows that I cannot stand to be away from the action and out of the loop so I was super motivated to get this card done quickly.  I think I did it in less than 5 minutes – which really is beyond record time for me.  And I was actually super happy with how it turned out!  Wow!

I knew I wanted to use the TE set You’re My Hero because that’s my go-to for teenagers – especially boys. This young man is a drummer so the “ROCK” theme of the set was perfect, but I didn’t want to use any of the guitar images – so I just kept it super simple with a little distressing.

Colors are Old Olive, Ruby Red and Chocolate Chip.  Images stamped on TE Choice Buttercream cs.

Thanks for stopping by.  I’ll be back tomorrow with the Taylored Expressions Blast from the Past Blog Hop.  And that card definitely was NOT done in 5 minutes.  LOL!  Have a great day!
