Need A Card in a Hurry…….then try this DCM dare.

It’s Tracie’s turn to set the dare over at the Daring Cardmakers this week.

It’s my turn (Bondgirl) to set the dare this week and it’s inspired by my life. As you all know I have 2 small children (2 and 4 months!) and managing life with them, my housewifely duties, studying for my BA, life, etc etc etc crafting sometimes has to take a back seat. You know what it’s like for every item you cross off your to do list, another 2 get written on. And then comes the dilemma, its X's birthday, or A and B's anniversary - what do you do? Time isn’t on your side to make a card but you don’t want to pay a small fortune for one in the shops either. Well hopefully this dare will help you out.
I want you to make a QUICK CARD! a card that takes you no more than hmm say 30 minutes max to do - start to finish. No set ingredients and pick your own theme, but be quick and be crafty! (and don’t forget to tell us how long it took too)

I have to say, most of my cards are labour intensive and usually take ages to make but on this occasion I managed one in under ten minutes…………Not bad when you consider that most of that was spent fuffing around trying to set up the printer to print directly onto the card.


The rest is simply four various sized rectangles cut from a Basic Grey ‘Mellow’ paper pad that have been inked along the edges, a QuickKutz Pussy Cat die cut, some doodling and a bit of bling.
That’s all there is to it
