the 20 Minute card

There is a new 7 year old in our house! Time flies when you are having fun...right? I remember when my little guy was 6 months old. That's the time when I signed on to be a demonstrator. One of the best decisions EVER!!!!
Have you ever made a card in just 20 minutes and felt proud of it? Well, as luck had it, that happened to me while quickly producing this card. It really took me just 20 minutes to pull it all together. Picture this, it's the big day for my little guy and I just wasn't ready! I still had to go to work, then pick up the last gift (the one he really wanted) and then race home and pump out a card. Thank goodness my husband volunteered to pick the kids up so I could race through traffic, run in and out the game store and head home before they did. Miraculously I made it. I made it and I made it:-) Just as I finished it, the door bell rang and we were in party mode. I looked like the perfect mom...for a few minutes...okay hours.

For the card I used the Play Date designer series paper, a retired stamp, real red and chocolate chip cardstock. Chocolate chip ink, and one of the Big Designer buttons with a bit of twine threaded through it. I used a 1" circle punch along with a 1-1/4" and a 1-3/8" punch to create the circle frame around the number 7. My son really liked his 20 minute card. Me? I'm ready for a nap.

Thanks for stopping go stamp something!
