Lucky me--I have had some unexpected crafty time, with both daughters in camp. I have two cards to share here. The first card is for this week's Make it Monday #78: Stamping and Stitching on Paper. This was a fun technique to learn, and was very easy, even for a gal who doesn't sew.
I was inspired by a card Nicole showed during the release of Fruit Fusion: Cherries. I used DMC floss #471 to sew the stems of the cherries.
My next card is for a new challenge: The 10 Minute Craft Dash. This challenge sounded like such fun. And, I could hardly say that I didn't have time to participate.
In order to make a card in less than 10 minutes, I had to make something pretty simple, and something that I knew would work the first time. Lots of times when I am making things up as I go, I need to try lots of things before I like the overall look. I saw a this card, and immediately knew (hoped) that I could make something similar using my Chevron Dies.

Total time for this card was 8 minutes 19 seconds. There is a great stopwatch timer at this site, that I used for this challenge. I used this timer all summer when my daughter was practicing her speeches for summer school. I was actually surprised how long it took me to make just 5 simple die cuts.
I am still celebrating my blogaversary this week. If you have not been to my 'official blogaversary post', please go there now. Help me celebrate one year of blogging, and leave a comment there to be eligible for a prize.
