Smiling… when I should be studying!

Oh me Oh my, Paulina at the 10 minute Craft Dash has outdone herself this time, some of my fave crafting colours here and I know that I really should be studying, but it’s only 10 minutes right?  And to be honest I had to make this card, just to get these colours out of my head lol.   Anyhoo, can’t dawdle I’ve got to get back to the books…  really!

I’ll be back very soon with some DT cards to share, see you then.

  1. Great stamping – love the colours. You’re studying as well?? How do you do it?? – what is it you’re studying Therese?? xL

  2. Hi Therese,
    Your card is so, so pretty! I think the colors you chose for the flowers made them stand out beautifully! Off to watch your video…I’m so impressed that you created something so lovely in just over 7 minutes 🙂
    You have me curious…may I ask what you are studying right now? (I consider myself the ‘eternal student’, having spent 12 years in college!

  3. This post just has me smiling from ear to ear. Hearing how much you like the colors and reading that you had to create with them before studying was such a delight! You know how to make a sick girl feel good! 🙂

    This card is beautiful. I love how you kept it a one layer card, but it has so much depth, one almost forgets it’s CAS! Fabulous job!

    Thank you for joining in the 10 Minute Craft Dash and spending some time crafting instead of studying. 😉 The plus side? It was only a few minutes!

  4. I can see why you had to make a card! I have seen you use these colors before, and this card is simply stunning!! You are a true stamper! Love the overlapping flowers and leaves, you created a gorgeous background!

  5. I don’t blame you for playing, Therese! The colors are fantastic and your card is such a bright and happy delight!!

    I do have a question, when you get another minute from the books. I have never seen a PTI sketch challenge and I just tried to find your sketch on Nichol’s blog and PTI’s site with no luck. Is that something they used to do, but no longer, or can you direct me? TSM!!

    1. Hi Darnell,
      I think this PTI sketch was part of their ‘6 year celebration’. Although I actually found it on a Pinterest page some clever person had made for sketches, trouble is I can’t remember where aaaaaggh.
      I’m thinking maybe I should make a Pinterest page for sketches….. then maybe I could find it again lol.
      Hope you are having a great weekend

  6. FAB, FAB card & video Therese – love those Annabelle Stamps!
    So glad you joined in the fun at the 10 Minute Craft Dash – hope to see you again soon 🙂

  7. Totally stunning, Therese – I cannot imagine being able to do it while filming. All my 10 minute cards are accompanied by profanity & dropping things on the dog, lol!

  8. Fabulous! You make crafting look so easy…I deliberate waaaaaayyy to long – hence why I don’t even attempt a 10 min challenge. Love the sentiment over the top of the flowers. Great touch.

  9. Therese, you’ve done it again – make a gorgeous card look so easy to make – but we all know it’s not!!! ;o) Lovely work and I love your commentary – you’ll make me smile all night.

  10. You make it look so easy Therese, perfect placement of those flowers and yes the colours are soooo pretty :0) you’re getting quicker too at these dashes!!!
