I had to make a birthday card and I didn't have much time
(well, that's not strictly true, but I didn't want to spare the time when there's so many other crafty things to do!)
However, it had to be done, and when I saw the sketch challenge on
I decided to play along!
I kept it simple, just how I like it (well, that's not strictly true either but I couldn't come up with anything better in the time I allowed!)
I also decided to play along with the challenge over on
which was a speed challenge (just 10 minutes to make a card)
and where at least one Tim Holtz product should be used.
Originally I thought I couldn't possibly make a card in ten minutes
but an email from Terry reminded me that the ten minutes
was for the actual creating (not for the idea or getting the supplies together!)
I had no excuse then did I!
I still kept it simple though - oh well!
The items I used to make the card were as follows:
Stampers Anonymous - Tim Holtz Collection 'School Desk CMS057' stamp (the rectangle note pad)
The Artistic Stamper 'Botanical 2 A5#056' (The rulers, ink bottle and nib)
Hero Arts 'CL289' (the 'For You' sentiment in the circle)

thanks for looking :)
