Fast Friday Card :: Just a litte Note


Hey Everyone! It's Friday and time for another fast card. Now, anyone can whip this card up in a jiffy. You know how when you want to send a little note along in a package? Well, this card is the perfect solution for that and you can make it in under 10 minutes (should be 5 if you work quickly from these steps). Drawing or handwriting on a card adds a personal touch, but is also super quick. Don't like your handwriting? Practice or purchase a handwriting stamp. Papertrey Ink has plenty, Technique Tuesday's Alli Edwards has a few, and even rubber stamps found at A.C. Moore or Michaels (like the one I used) work as a great substitute. One-layer cards can look plain, but I like them sometimes for simplicity and they remind me of graphic cards I can purchase in a pack in a store, except I made it! :)

I hope you all have a great weekend. We have some fun plans. Of course, we have another photo session. This time it's a family + newborn. I have some great ideas and I just hope the baby stays asleep so we can do them! We plan to go to the movies to see the new Beyonce movie with the lady from Heroes, Ali Larter, called Obsessed, it looks so dramatic! Other than that, I have lots of projects and cards to make in the between time to keep me happily busy. Oh yeah and I hope to pick up my new Flip Mino HD Video Camera too and play with that!

Thanks for stopping by!
