A Challenge for You! Make a Mother's Day Card

>> Wednesday, May 4, 2011

Every holiday and birthday my Sister-in-Law makes the most amazing handmade cards. Everyone OOH's and AHH's over the cards, and I think to myself, "why don't I make my own cards?" In a word, TIME. I am time-impaired. As such, I normally remember said card 15 minutes before the party. So I created three SUPER-FAST cards you can complete in plenty of time for the big day.

The first uses papers from the Picket Fence line. I used Cottage Garden, Porch Swing, and Al Fresco.

The second card is another fast card, with the sentiment coming right off the This and That Cardstock Sticker Sheet. The only thing that took any time at all was punching the border. But again, I think you can get this card done in 15-20 minutes. I used the This and That Tiny Tablet for the papers.

The last card I used the Happily Lost Collection. I used the Tiny Tablet, as well as the ABC and Cardstock Stickers. This one took me the most time at about 25 minutes.

Great cards, Kay. I'm like you! I don't remember that I need a card until right before I need that card. LOL!

Thanks for the challenge! After reading your post, I realized that I hadn't made my grandmother a card yet, and I had to get it in the mail today for it to reach her in time...so did this one last night:

Thanks for the fun challenge. I used Catching Fall to make my Mother's Day Card. I love how this versatile fall line can be used for a spring time theme.
