15 Minute Project ... And an Award to Pass On!

Pin It

Today's "15 Minute" project was made in a quick second using a die-cut from October Afternoon's "County Fair" collection.

When I saw this numbered "Notes" die-cut, I knew it would be just perfect to incorporate in a card project. I stamped all the sentiments (from Papertrey Ink's Limited Edition Anniversary Collection), using dark brown fluid chalk ink, and attached a scalloped edge binder clip.

I punched my card stock using a SU! spiral punch, then wrapped some natural jute thread around to hold my die-cut in place. I added a few eyelets, more jute thread, and a bit of ribbon and I was done! Easy-peasy and ready to serve in just 15 Minutes!

My rockin' bloggin' pal, Julie, sent me this really neat award:

What a kewl graphic, huh?!? Well, it's time for me to pass the torch, err, .png file. Julie passed the award on to six people who rocked her socks, so I'll do the same:

3rd: Sweet, smart, hysterically funny, uber-talented, with glitter everywhere and in her hair ... Jennifer!

4th: A new bloggin' buddy who's fun, friendly, and has some SERIOUS talent! And when I say 'serious talent,' I'm being ... umm, serious. Here ya go, Julia!

5th: A lovely woman who, wherever she blurfs, spreads joy, laughter, friendship, and encouragement. Oh. She also possesses the. most. amazing. coloring. skillz. evuh. ... Risa!

6th: You! You never fail to inspire, encourage, and delight me with your unbelievable talent, your warm friendship, your total acceptance, your willingness to share your ideas and your time, your commitment to the art of stamping, and your constant support. Daily, you challenge me to try harder, work smarter, and to pursue my dreams. Thank you ... now take this and get outta here!

Thanks so much for sharing part of your busy day with me.
