Gears to You ... a 15 Minute Project

Pin It

It's the return of the Dreaded 15 Minute Man Card!

Today's card project was created using manly elements, a bit of distressing, and lots of Tim Holtz goodness!

I die-cut the gears from scrap chipboard and added color using Adirondack Dabbers in Juniper, Silver, Gold, and Copper. A few stickers, some sprockets, a game spinner, a typewriter key word and finis ... easy-peasy and ready to serve in just 15 Minutes!

For the complete list of product info, check out the Card Recipe, below.

Sooooooooo, Reid-the-Wild-Child (remember him!?!) called me yesterday ... because he does that ... and had a question:

"Auntie, I was at Church on Sunday and in Father Paul's sermon he said 'Without Jesus we are but dust ...'.

"Umm, okay?"

"Well, here's my question: what is butt dust?"

Hey! I have a question ... why do I always get these questions?!?

Thanks so much for spending part of your busy day with me ... have a very crafty weekend!
