Made in double quick time

On Thursday I worked through quite a few household chores and then late afternoon sat down to have a little play in the craft room. For some reason, my hand strayed to the 'birthday book' and yikes - it was Len's great-nephew's Birthday the following day! Talk about a flurry of activity - a card made in double quick time so I could race out and post it:
I used:

- 6" x 6" square Kraft card stock

- LOTV 'Cute Square', layered onto a snippet of red paper with all corners rounded

- 'denim' backing card by Joanna Sheen, from the 'Haberdashery' pack, which also included the pocket, sentiment and 'buttons'

- the number 7 from a little batch of die cuts sent to me a while back by Sarn - these are lifesavers!

Then I jumped into my little car and managed to catch the last post in time - close call though!

  5. Fabulous card, love that denim paper, thought it was a real pair of jeans first. Those LOTV squares are a real lifesaver aren't they and no-one needs to know we didn't colour them lol. Hugs, Amanda X

    I have about 70 million great nephews n nieces and everything in between thanks to his Lordship's huge family. I don't even know half their names and addresses . . . so luckily I don't have to make them all cards! Phew!

  12. I wish I could work as quickly as you and make such a brilliant card. I made a Twinchie this morning and, as I put on my blog, it took me an hour to sort out which stamp I was going to use!!! Thank goodness you looked at your birthday book!

    Hugs to you Sue Pxxx

  13. Fabulous boy card and love the backing and the pocket.
    I was just the same with my BIL, his Birthday was Sunday and I was in a panic Saturday night but luckily enough could deliver, not post. Forgot to take a photo though and even managed to write him a verse.
