I came home from church at around 4:30 pm (PST) today and had about 3 1/2 hours. I quickly got changed, put away all the stuff I had brought to church to teach my class with, washed off my makeup, washed my hands and got together scraps that were black, red & gray. Then the phone rang!! I was on the phone with my parents for 40 mins. I enjoyed the time on the phone, but I thought, "Now I can get going on the card and have it in before the deadline."
I already had a card base from a previous card that I had not used. I had a rough idea on what I would do, so I cut the black, the gray and the red. It was close to supper and I hadn't eaten since 7:30 am, so I quickly threw a pizza into the oven. The phone rang again!!
It was my sister from Utah! I knew she would want to talk. and was willing to let her, so while on the phone with her, holding the phone to my ear with my shoulder, I cut the medallion out of a scrap of patterned paper, I stamped and heat embossed (which you can tell by how poor a job of it I did), dry embossed the red paper with my Cuttlebug, laid out the pieces, pulled out the pearls and ribbon, and put scor tape on the back of each piece. I impressed myself that I could do that all while holding the phone with my shoulder. I was on the phone with my sister for a little over an hour. Now if I hadn't been on the phone all this would have gone much more quickly.
Needless to say, once our conversation was completed, I think I broke a record in assembling this card, and taking photos! I didn't even tweek the photo; just cropped and added the watermak. I put only the necessary info and pics on the post so that I could enter it, then I came back to write the details. And here it is.
And Guess what? Even though I was able to get the pizza out of the oven in perfect time, I still haven't been able to enjoy a nice hot pizza for supper. It must be cold by now. And here I thought I was being so organized in getting the pizza going so that I could nibble on it while making the card...lol ;).
Well that's it for my speedily made card. May it never happen again!
Thank you so much for stoping by. Wishing you a great week!
