Thanks so much for all your lovely comments and good wishes on my exciting news (today’s earlier scheduled post) … I’m not only smiling all over my face … my heart will stay warm right the way throught to next winter! THANK YOU!
This week, I really wanted to play along at LIM as my lovely friend, the delightful Darnell is Guest Designer (Yay!). Life’s been a bit crazy, though, and as many of you know, I’m not a quick card maker … so I wasn’t sure I was going to make it (need to get a move on even now … Mr Linky closes his doors in just 20 minutes!). Support came, however, from Winnie & Walter’s Share The Love Week, which features a 10 Minute Craft Dash challenge … so I gave it a go. Darnell coined the term QACAS (Quick and Clean and Simple) and is a genius at transforming Penny Black Stickeroos into the most amazing cards … I took a leaf from her book and made this …
I stamped the beach using an Annabelle Stamps border with lots of different sand (ish) coloured ink and added the PB sandcastle-building-happy-soul … all of which took about two minutes (without the stamp being cleaned afterwards). Then I took over five minutes to figure out what sentiment to add (see, not a fast card maker!) … eventually a Simon Says Stamp ‘wishing you lots of’ and a Winnie & Walter ‘happy’ just seemed to fit perfectly with the image. The ‘happy’ has been coated with Wink of Stella … just one coat … it took me so long to decide on the sentiment, there wasn’t time left to add another! The time taken … just 9 minutes 52 seconds! It was timed on my watch … if I had a mobile phone, I would have timed it on that and taken a picture … but I don’t have one, so I didn’t!
I’m joining in the fun at …

Hoping to get some shared computer time over the weekend to get round blogland and emailonia … unless I have my laptop back, in which case I’ll be spending happy hours doing both! Thanks so much for coming by, your visits and comments are always a joy! Anita 🙂
