'Tim in Ten' and 'Quixotic Inspirations Sketch Challenge'

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)

If you're still reading this,
thanks for looking :)

It's funny, my browser wouldn't allow your blog to come up, or so I thought. Minutes later, I heard the fairy bells and I knew you were on some window somewhere so I clicked below and there you were. Saved by the bell.

Your card is lovely and it's wonderful that you make your own birthday and other cards for people. Makes them feel very special for sure.
