Yes, yes, I know.....It's about time. I wasn't intending to take quite such a long break, but life was just happening and happening and was totally out of my control. Well, okay, not really, but I had to give it a shot. So, I want to thank you so very much for hanging in there with me, and I have a couple of quick little cards to show you.
I was visiting with my sister, and what do we do best when we're together? Yes, MAKE STUFF (especially with scraps)! And she had the idea that we should do a ten-minute challenge. She pulled out her box of scraps, threw a bunch of card-sized pieces on the table, and we both chose a base color. Then she pulled a variety of pieces that would coordinate with our bases. She also had lots of embellishments that she wants to use up, but we limited ourselves to just about three, or maybe four, packages. And here are the cards we made:
In truth, we forgot to check the time when we started, but we guessed the whole process took 20-25 minutes. Once we selected all our materials, the cards themselves took only about five minutes to put together. But that was really very good for us; neither of us is usually that quick in making projects.
The cards measure about 3 3/4" X 4 1/4" so we needed to make custom envelopes as well. But that took only a few more minutes. Here is a photo of one of the cards with an envelope:
Now it's your turn for a challenge. Most of you have known me for awhile, so the challenge shouldn't be too difficult. I want you to let me know in the comments section which card you think is my sister's and which is mine. I will make a random selection from all the correct answers, and the winner will receive a little goody from me. I will leave this open until 11:59pm (CDT-US) Thursday night; that's August 14, and I'll announce the winner on Friday, the 15th.
AND I have another blog candy opportunity coming up soon. Do stay tuned!
Good luck everyone!!! 'Til next time.....
