EAJC #33, 10 minutes...

Wow, this was EXACTLY what I needed today :-) Why is it, when we have time on our hands to "spare" we get all funky and unable to concentrate??? I dunno!
Actually, may have a LOT to do with me not sleeping well due to indigestion and being so big with this babe of ours... LOL!

Anywhooos... I *LOVED* Emily's latest card challenge. 10 minutes to get a card done, here's mine:
When I first started this art challenge, I painted all 52 cards straight up, so check, that part was done.
What I did in the 10 minutes:
* cut the three words live, love, laugh out of some 12x12 + stapled
* cut the calendar out of the suduko desk thingy I have + stapled
* applied some red crayon around the edges
* Stamped the following:
- Rhonna Farrer's Botanicals acrylics,
- Heidi Swapp "adore" journal block acrylic
- Cherry Art dragon fly acrylic
* stapled some ribbon on to the side (from my latest Sissey kit, which arrived today and is AMAZING!!)
* scribbled in some journaling "A beautiful time in our lives"... Can't wait for baby to arrive! Getting so big and sleeping on the couch"
* journaling on the back about indigestion and other such pregnancy related JOYS (NOT)... to make me acutally LOOK FORWARD to labour LOL! I am really looking forward to meeting our happy and healthy (still 2 weeks larger than dates).... very soon!

Thats it ... 10 mins up!
Done!
Just in time to collect Kaela from school and go feed some ducks in the sunshine.
Peace and jOY out lovelies...
Thanks Ems for another great challenge!

Love your card...so much rich color - gorgeous. I am in awe that you painted the whole DECK before starting the actual prompts...I started "prepping" in the beginning--and have never used those yet!! I am running out of time!! LOL TFS!
