AYSI218 Speedy Shades of Brown

Happy Friday, peeps!  I hope you have some fun things least maybe some stamping?!  We have an awesome Speed Stamping challenge for you today, this last day of January, at As You See It!  Hopefully you can complete your card in ten minutes or less!  Look at this yummy challenge photo:

No photo description available.

I had been cleaning up some of my craft room right before I did this challenge and one of my challenges to myself was to finish up the cards in my May Paper Pumpkin kit.  Look what I found....a pretty "shades of brown" pre-printed card!  Woohoo!  I simply stamped a sentiment from A Wish For Everything in Craft White ink on some Early Espresso cardstock, sprinkled on some white embossing powder and heated it up to make this little tag to add to my card:

After heating it up, I diecut it with one of the dies from Trio of Tags (they're not just for the matching stamp set, LOL!), then added some Linen thread!  

At the last minute, to add a little more brown, I watercolored the nest very quickly with some Soft Suede ink!  My final total was 8 minutes, 40 seconds!

I hope you'll step up to this challenge and use some shades of brown---in ten minutes or less--and share your creation with us at As You See It!  Can't wait to see it! Thanks for popping in today!  

So I shared a card a few days ago for my great-nephew; his birthday was yesterday and I just had to share this photo his mom put on FB:

So no whining, any of you, about having a bad hair day, LOL!  Enjoy your day and be blessed!

Wow! That is an amazing time, LeAnne! I don't think it could get any quicker, or cuter … don't even get me started on this darling ginger baby!! I wanna kiss him all over that sweet face!

You have been very cunning about your speed stamping this month LeAnne and it looks amazing!
That little boy is adorable - never mind the hair, look at those chubby cheeks!! Vicky x

Clever idea to save time by stepping up the Paper Pumpkin. I recognised the card because that's the only Paper Pumpkin I've ever seen!

Wow LeAnne, you made a pretty card in record time! The nest is wonderful. But I have to say, the hairdo steals the spotlight here, what a cutie he is!

What a great way to save time on this speed challenge LeAnne - your fancy tag is a great way to step up your printed card base too. As for your nephew's hair - priceless! He is such a cutie!!
