Is he not the cutest?
I'm in a great mood today. A giving mood. Sooo, I'm going to let you all in on my secret to crafting in a hurry (ie, when the kids are napping or aren't clawing at your legs or asking for more chocolate milk because they're hunnnnnnnnnngry.... lol). Here goes:
Save yer stuff.
This card came together in 10 minutes (and I promise you at least 7 of those minutes was spent threading those buttons... grrr....) The sun-rays were already stamped onto the kraft paper, and the "sun-circle" was already roughed-up. The monster with his insanely cute googly eyes was already colored and cut out. The strip of stamped "ground" was also a scrap from another project. All of these pieces were rejects from different projects. I couldn't get them to work at the time, but I like how they came together here!
In 10 minutes, I stitched a crazy pattern into the sun (mostly because that's all I can manage for now), stitched the ground under the monster's feet, and stitched the "strings" for the button-balloons. All that remained was to fill the space on the right with the greeting: monster love x3!
Thanks for looking! Have a great weekend :)
