I hope you have had a good day .. .. mine has flown by super quickly as usual.
I spent time with Mum again today and on the way home called to borrow a wheelchair from our friends in the hope of getting her to go out and about. It is taking some persuading but I am hopeful she is going to let me push her into town for her to look around the shops. Prior to being poorly she was someone who always needed her daily fix of "fresh air" .. .. so after what must be 6 weeks or so I am hoping the lure of the sunshine .. .. and her beloved T K Max store will between them persuade her to venture out.
I am managing a little bit of crafting whilst with Mum and today managed to finish a set of invitations and whilst there a scrummy new set of downloads arrived in my "in-box" from the lovely Sally-Ann of Digistamp Boutique .. .. .. they are always exciting to open .. .. .. especially this one as it held lots of downloads for making super fast cards. Something I am desperately in need of at the moment as time is a bit short on the crafty front and there are a lot of birthdays to cater for in the House of Hearts come May time.
So .. .. what do you class as a "quick card"?
For me it is anything that takes me less than half an hour. But this one was even faster than that! It took a whole 15 minutes .. .. with the longest part of that being the thing I dither over the most .. .. my backing papers! LOL!!
So here it is .. .. my super speedy make:
Image and sentiment (one of many): Digistamp Boutique: "Large Happy Birthday Set - Lilac"
Backing Paper: Craft Sensations "Chalkboard Love"
My Trusty Sewing Machine
Quickie Glue Pen and Glamour Dust
Gems and Ribbon from my Crafty Stash Box
and that is it!
If you like this style of design then there are lots of other styles that have just been released here. Newbies are always discounted for a limited time as they make their grand entrance into the boutique so don't miss out on a bargain.
Now it is time to un-pack the bag I took to Mum's today and re-load it with supplies ready for tomorrow.
Wish me luck as I also take the wheelchair into the flat tomorrow .. .. and even more luck in persuading Mum to actually be taken out in it!!!
Enjoy the rest of your evening.
