A Bonus Challenge

Welcome!!

Let me start by saying that this summer is definitely going on record as not only having the wackiest weather, but also as the busiest!!

This weekend DRS Designs will be at the Novi, MI stamp show (please come join us if you can!!!) so we've all been running around like crazy getting ready for the show. One of the things that got put off till the last minute was this post. Instead of admitting defeat (what's that??) I challenged myself to come up with the quickest card I possibly could. I was really striving for 10 minutes, but in my rush I kept cutting things badly and had to do my retirement layer 4 times (proving once again that "haste makes waste"). In the end my card took me a total of 19 minutes. I was pretty happy with that. One of the things that helped is that I had the "Tiny Bee" already colored and cutout from last weeks card that just didn't work ( "waste not, want not"!!!!!).

So, I challenge all of you stampers who are putting aside your fun to "do" for your family and friends to take 19 minutes and see what you can come up with!!

Have a great weekend and we hope to see you in Novi!!

I can't imagine making a card in 19 minutes - you are a pro! Love the bright colors and the bee is just the perfect touch.

This fun card would be considered a stunner even without knowing how little time it took to create -- now I'm amazed!

Have a great time at the show!!
