A 15 minute card

I'm back.

I dispensed with bringing my good camera on vacation because I figured I'd use the camera on my phone. I find that I'm pickier about photographing my cards than I thought. Not sure I like the quality of the photos I took of a card that I whipped up today but I'll deal with it.

In a quick trip through Michaels yesterday, I picked up a new Love Letters DP stack by Recollections and a cute 3 bird cling stamp set by Inkadinkado. (My dh realizes that I don't cook on vacation so he's turning a blind eye to the fact that I've converted half of our  kitchen into a studio. Lol.) The sentiments I used on the card are from Print Works (outside) and Stampendous (inside).

I've said this many times. I like taking really pretty collage paper and letting it do most of the work on my cards. This one just needed matting, a fussy cut bird and the sentiment stamped directly on the background paper.

I continued with the same paper inside the card and a birthday stamp. My sister-in-law's birthday is coming up on the Jan 3rd so I'm ready to fill it out and mail it. All in about 15 minutes.

Thanks for dropping by. I hope you're anticipating a fun, crafty New Year.

Happy New Year, Cindy! Those papers are amazing and I love how you featured them. Are those drawings a big background stamp?

A few have asked if the sketches are a background stamp. Nope. This Love Letters paper stack from Recollections (at Michaels) has this luscious design on it already! I just chose which part to use on my card. *smile*
