Some Quick Cards from Last night

Yesterday evening i was reading some threads about 10 minute cards ( You know for submitting to take ten) well the truth is most my cards take me 30 minutes (or more) so, i told my self lets see if you can do ten minute cards... ( that was the goal) (it did not happen) this first card i did,I sanded the chipboard slide then i patted the chipboard slide into a versamark Olympian green pad, and it was kinda green with some yellow peeking out, so then i looked at small word stamps, and these from stampendous fit so i stamped them on a scrap of yellow paper, so i had this slide and the rest of the card fell into place around that. the big yellow flower is silk and the smaller one is a greenhouse felt one from American Crafts. This is an A-2 sized card on perfect plum cardstock the pp is from DieCutsWithaView, and the yellow hand made pp is from Provocraft (i think?)
This is the second one from the scraps of the first card, the zig zag stitch (Hero Arts) is done in the Olympian green also, the Hero Arts pastel Petals are done in Milled lavender distress, and the small real flowers are done in a second generation of dusty concord.
Today i have the day off and so far on the list, i have come across a thread about unmounting stamping up wheels ( Which excites me as i don't get very good impressions with mine, probably a wrist thing) and the second thing i seen today that looked pretty interesting was the directions for a Joy Fold card. ( a flat back of cardstock with two flaps scored and overlapped across the front that tie close with a ribbon) looks like something fun to try.
J is out side with a side walk stand trying to sell used (duplicate) Yu-Gi-Oh cards... (there is a thing tomorrow he's going to at the library) He's decided he wants to have Guitar lessons...
I may try to sneak in a few photos of this later... he's been out there since before 9 am...
(And 6 whole people have walked by is the latest update... No buyers though)
have a good day!

Good for you, for trying 10 minute cards, Stacy. I won't go there. Love what you came up with.

I love that ribbon slide up in the corner. Great idea.
My take on the Take Ten thing is that it doesn't necessarily take the designer ten minutes (as you know) but that someone could then duplicate it in about ten minutes.
