A Quick Little Smile

Hi everyone. Last week Claire was posting little 5 minute projects over on her blog and since I've been busy, busy, busy all week, I was inspired to try it. Now, I had NO DELUSIONS that I would be able to finish a card in 5 minutes. That just ain't gonna happen - I'm usually still deciding on colors at that point! LOL But I set a goal of 10 minutes and I pretty much achieved it (I say pretty much, because I called time out for the 5 minutes that my border punch jammed and I had to go out to the garage to find a hammer and beat some sense into it!).



The DP was from the scrap pile on my desk (I think the orange is Heidi Grace and the aqua is October Afternoon. Since Claire inspired me to make the card in the first place, I paired her Very Vintage Labels 1 with a sentiment from my new set, Thankful Hearts. Some suede ribbon and an orange bead tied with some jute seemed quick and interesting enough. Then I punched the base of the card (took my little time out here), then added a chocolate strip behind it to make it full length again and finished off with some tiny Taylor's Tiny Twinkles rhinestones.

  1. Julee - this is adorable. We should all have a 5-minute challenge once a week, just to loosen us up. Kind of like stretching before exercising! Love that you beat up your punch, too... LOL!
