Fun-Filled Friday

Happy Fun-Filled Friday.

Sorry again for my lack of posting this week. I am out of town and didn't get the pictures loaded I had planned before I left. Again work gets in the way of fun. Darn those bills that need to get paid! I am still hoping to get a tutorial posted tomorrow (with Mom's help of course).

Well on with this weeks challenge. As you may know I challenged Jen to make a card in 10 mins or less! Ok this is a difficult task to being with now lets also add in for me it was a limited supply challenge. I didn't get to work on it before heading out to my parents and since I was flying I only packed 4 crafting items :

1. my ATG

2. my Prismacolor pencils

3. one SU! set

4. black Versa Fine ink

I then came up with a concept in my head and picked up some ink at Walmart here in Minnesota, and stole some of Mom's card stock. I even had my mom set the timer for 10 mins to see how I would do and I finished my last bit of gluing right as the timer went off WHEW! here is the outcome:

Since I didn't pack any embellishments and my Mom is a little lacking in that department and 10 mins didn't give me much time, I decided to layer 2 butterflies on top of each other and fold the wings a bit to give it a 3-D effect. Here is a close up:

Supplies :
  • Stamps - Stampin Up!
  • Ink - Versa Fine black, all colors by Martha Stewart
  • Miscellaneous - card stock by The Paper Company, Prismacolor pencils blended with Gamsol

Well, it was pretty challenging for me. I had to use a cutter and scissors I wasn't used to and go digging around my Mom's house for supplies before I started. But a card in 10 mins or less can be done. I am sure it would have been something a little more creative had I had all my own supplies but for what I had I think I did pretty good.

I would love to see your 10 mins or less card. Post a link to it in my comments. And don't forget to see what Jen came up with this week. I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Happy Crafting,
