A 10 Minute Card? & an Award

Is it possible to make a card in 10 minutes? I have never timed myself when making cards, but this morning I needed a birthday card & I only had a few minutes to spare, so I picked some fun ribbon (from CRAFT QUEEN) a card blank, cut some "Alterations" "on the edge" trim out of some left-over green cs, some white cs (for the quick tag) some chalk (for the edges of the tag) some letter stickers (from HERE), button & left-over ric rac also from CRAFT QUEEN) & my trusty white souffle pen...& 10 minutes later I had my card all done & ready to be mailed!

I then got out a few bits & pieces from my CRAFT QUEEN bag of goodies & made this card...I used a 6"x6" piece of pp, & the die cut was stamped with Darkroom Door French Script in Versamark ink & covered with clear embossing powder, I then went over the edges with Distress ink (Vintage photo)& added THIS button, & THIS lace, as well as the sentiment (from THIS Darkroom Door set)
If you need a great finishing touch for a project, have a look at these beautiful wooden buttons. They are just a few in the range that Nicole has available in her store, & I bet you didn't know she has more than 800 ribbons & 120 ric racs!!!! How do I know that? I just read her blog post HERE
She has also been kind enough to pass on a blog award (thanks, Nicole) & now I need to nominate 10 favourite blogs, & 10 things about me!!!!
Well, my very favourite blogs are already listed on the side bar, so go & do some blog hopping : )
Now, for 10 things about me...that's a bit harder LOL
1. I love to create, anything!
2. I love chocolate, but only if it is Cadbury's Dairy Milk or Dark chocolate.
3. Both DH & DD know I can be bribed with the right chocolate LOL!
4. I love to create, but I very rarely create to a plan LOL
5. I have a terrible fear of spiders!!!!!
6. I love to read books, especially autobiographies.
7. I love horror films, the scarier the better, but I have not been able to bring myself to watch Eight-Legged Freaks (yet)LOL
8. Right now I'm listening to Bustamante's 2005 album "Caricias al Alma" which always reminds me of our trip to Barcelona in 2005 as his single seemed to be playing EVERYWHERE we went : )
9. I wish there were more hours in the day!
10. I love word games (Scrabble, Boggle, & Balderdash are favorites!)
Thanks for visiting my palace, & if you feel like sharing the award, consider it yours, but don't forget to share : )
