It's Tuesday and time for a new Challenge at Shopping Our Stash.....

Are you ready for a really, really good challenge at Shopping Our Stash? Well do we have a dandy this week!!! Challenge #330 is a Thank you card in less than 30 minutes!!! We want you to set your timer for 30 minutes and create a thank-you card, very important to set the timer and let us know how long it took.  I guess I kind of cheated a bit, since I am still in chaos from bringing my things home from the lake I did a bit of prep work. I picked my sketch (pinterest) picked my cardstock and my dies and stamp I wanted to use then I set my timer.  My card was made in 22 minutes and 50 seconds

The poinsettia was already cut and glued together (it was something I made just in case I needed it for a tag for the 25 days of Christmas Tags) I did add glue and some chunky gold glitter.  I then cut the banners from scraps fish tailing both ends. (you will see later) cut two Thanks one black one red and glued them together. The lace is from the dollar store and is adhesive, just peel and stick. My colours are Crumb Cake Red and Very Vanilla all were from my scrap or file box. 

Close up of the poinsettia which is an unbranded die. 

Now you see why I cut both ends of the strip of patterned paper, so I could use the end bits on the inside. I also finished it with a really nice stamp.  When I bought the stamp the top of the wood said From all of us, when I stamped it it had For All You Do well so much time had passed they no long sold those stamps but it sure works for some occasions (I'm still looking for From all of Us)

I'm entering this in:
