Oh, Happy Day – it’s PPA!

Hi Stampers.  Happy PPA day.  Here I am the night before the post goes live rushing to get my card made, the PPA blog post up, and my blog post too.  Just call me “Last Minute Lisa”…  I threw this card together so fast, it was almost funny.  I made the card and took the photo and thought to myself, “I really should spend more time on this” and then I stopped my self and thought.  Sometimes a minute is all we have.  I show new and exciting techniques all the time.  Those are fun, too.  But, sometimes you are just in a hurry ready to rush out the door and you need a quick card.  This one fits the bill perfectly!
ppa244I have to confess, I already had the card base cut and I had the sentiment cut and layered from some other cards I was making in bulk on Saturday.  These are the cards I was working on Saturday so you get the idea of what I had lying around.  (Note: I will be doing a post on cards like those later.)

A circle framelit was used to cut out a circle of Strawberry Slush card stock just slightly larger than the starburst framelit to layer behind it.)

I tell ya, it may have been a record.  Sure, given a little more time and thought, I could jazz it up.  But, hey for a quick and easy card – I kinda like how it came out.

Happy quick stamping,

  3. I’m a big fan of using up what is laying around! You made a celebration out of this sketch.

  4. You’re right, we all appreciate a quick card now and then! I love how the starburst says it all out there, front and center!
