DCM - speedy make!

When I saw the idea for this weeks dare I though OMG!!! It can take me ages to make a card. I faff around so much with different looks and ideas. So I have to say that I admire anyone who can just get on with it!! I could never make a business out of cardmaking thats for sure lol.

Anyway the idea was to make a card in 30 minutes...eeeeek! Well....I did one in about 28 minutes just ( set a timer so no pressure hehe) I used a lovely little Chippie house from Bubbly Funk and covered it with scrap paper from my drawer. I stuck a little button on for a doorknob. The sentiment was printed on my pc and matted & layered using the same scraps.

But quite frankly all that plain space looked wrong so I took it apart and redid it. I covered the card with a piece of K&Co Sparkly Sweet paper. Am happier now lol. This alteration took 5minutes......bet that doesn't count hahahahah

Sorry about the picture quality, new batteries!!!! Hope to have the scanner plugged in soon so they will be better quality. Thanks for looking X

Well done Karen. The first version is lovely - but the second version is even better - nice to know someone else just has to add a little bit more....

Yes I think it does look better with the patterned paper - although it was v. cute to start with! I think it still counts as a quick make!
