Happy Birthday card and tag


Happy Saturday friends...  I wanted to play along with the fabulous 10 Minute Craft Dash, so this morning in my pre-coffee state I tried to make a card using the technique Dawn talks about here, but then I cropped the card and totally misaligned the paper cutter chopping it off in a non-useable way.  So I left the chopped card went to the gym, the Farmers Market and then came home and had some coffee.



Take 2 of the same card (so I'm not sure if that's considered cheating) took me 8 minutes and 46 seconds (and that includes my mother walking in and talking to me while crafting).  I love that she asks who the card is for and I'm often answering, "No one, it's for a challenge" and she doesn't get it.  Moxie Fab World is having a Birthday Card Challenge, so this works for that one too.


But then I thought about how I should play along with the Moxie Fab World Birthday challenges before the deadline and I took that "ruined" card and turned it into a tag... so my tag-centric week on my blog continues :)  This tag also works for the CAS on Sunday "Tag It" challenge and this week's PTI Make It Monday "random background" challenge.

Materials: Card: PTI Bigger Blooms, WPlus9 Folkart Florals, PTI inks, card stock, Glossy Accents

Oh, that drives me nuts when someone comes to talk to me when I'm doing a timed challenge.... I have to stop what I'm doing and pause the timer until they leave! LOL!
Your card and tag are so pretty! I'm not sure what you mean about cropping your card wrong-- it looks fabulous!
Thanks for much for playing along with the 10 Minute Craft Dash!
