Marching Into Fall

Oh my goodness! Last Monday was the debut of the ABC Challenges Blog (All Beautiful Cards)........ and there were 48 participants!!! WOO HOO!!! Isn't that awesome! If you played along, thank you!!!

Now, I must do some housekeeping before I show you the details for this weeks ABC CHALLENGE.

Though there WERE 48 participants, some of them actually were disqualified. So, before you participate this week, be sure to check out the guidelines. They are few, and quite simple, but they must be followed. I'm sorry. Mainly, watch the number of challenges you enter with the ABC Challenge project. That seems to be the guideline that got some of the participants.

Okay.......... let's go............

October 29 - November 4

Theme: Halloween In a Hurry and Fast Fall Cards

Create QUICK cards! Your cards should take less than 30 minutes to make.

I timed it. LOL! My card took 20 minutes to make - and that included the time it took to find the supplies I wanted to use (have I mentioned how messy my Cubbyhole is??? EEK!) and time to color the image.

I went with a fall card. I love fall!!!

I was in a time crunch, so the inside of my card (like the front) is very VERY simple.

But you know what I discovered? It's quite fun to make a FAST card. I hope you'll try it, too... and join the ABC Challenges this week.

Wow that is an amazing card and so great that you could do it in under 30 minutes.... your supplies must be very close at hand - and did you clean your stamps in that time ;-)?+

I really like how you stamped the image on the DP. It looks really good. The use of the larger DP images work perfectly. Great job!
