You ever finish a card and are so excited because it either came together really easy, or you just adore the colors or everything is just so YOU about it?? That's what I just did. I've got some deadlines coming up for big swaps so I challenged myself to a 30-minute-or-less card today and this is what I came up with! You may think I cheated by using a sketch challenge, color challenge and Ways to Use It challenge but I don't! Hey, we do what we can. Besides, I really like these colors together (Rose Red, More Mustard & Kiwi Kiss) and the sketch is awesome I think, plus if you know me well you may know that I've always LOVED stripes (on cards anyway)!

The fun part is I not only embossed, but also used the Big Shot, great accessories and enjoyed some older stamps that I hadn't used in a while! All that and it was still fast! The large white brad in the center of the felt flower is NEW! They are the 5/16" jumbo brads in neutrals- FUN!

Thanks for stopping by! I can't wait to be able to share my swap cards with you- I designed them last night and I really like them. They won't be posted here until the due date probably, which is Feb. 27th- sorry for the wait!
