Thursday 10 minute card challenge

I've been following Sandi MacIver and Carole'Anne Sluchinski
blogs and they are doing a 10 minute challenge very Thursday.
Well today is Thursday in Australia and a day ahead of
both of them and they didn't start the challenge publicly yet
or invite me but I thought I'd do it anyway hee hee

I decided to take an old favourite and time how long
it took me to make, I am also making this for a swap
so why not use my time wisely and kill 2 birds with one
hee hee

My ingredients are:
Stamps: Embrace Life, En francais
(see Carole' Anne I picked a French one just for you tee hee)

Gel Pen, Pretty in Pink taffeta ribbon, crimper, Stamp a majig
Cardstock: Rose Red, Whisper White, Pretty in Pink
Inkpad: Rose Red

Ink up En Francais with Rose Red ink

Sorry about the dirty sheet behind

Run through crimper

Line up acetate sheet that has Embrace Life
stamped on it

Line up second image with acetate sheet

Colour flower with gel pen and ...........

............daub edge of all three card stock

Voila my 10 minute card

Here's another one I had made earlier using the
Pretties kit embellishments

Card done in 10 minutes

I even had time to make a cup of tea, well making
this card was on the spur of the moment as you
can see from my desk, I had no time to clean up
and had forgotten I put the kettle on to boil
so halfway through all this the kettle was boiling
like mad and I had to jump over to the kitchen
and brew the tea.

I did not believe that these ladies could
make a card and photo graph it in 10 mins,
well had I not done it myself I now believe its possible.

Here's another titbit
its taken me less than an hour to
make the card
photograph them, even outside,
PSP my watermark on every photo
upload and write this segment up

It's so good to not be under stress, I am taking this time before
my surgery to just play and I've created a
storm of cards,
I'll upload more cards I've made soon

Thanks Sandi and Carole'Anne
