Happy Birthday Boy Card!

I am out of boy birthday cards so I made this one for my stash! I timed how long it took me, almost 30 minutes... How long do you spend on making a "quick" card?

  2. This is such a beautiful card, and just because it's blue doesn't necessary mean it has to be for a boy; it's a great card for anyone!!!

    I love that you keep a stash of cards, I really should do that!

  3. Great card I love the papers. My wick cards are probably 30 min. Choosing the papers takes me a long time

  6. I sure would love to get one of these gifts. This came out great! No quick cards for me...I work too slow making sure everything is perfect. It's crazy!

  7. The phrase "got presents" does not do this wonderful card justice. Like the blue & white with pearls and the tiny tag.

  16. Fabulous card! The making of an actual card takes about 30-45 minutes but it's the finding the cuts or images, picking the papers and on and on that takes hours. I change my mind with the Nebraska weather. (every 10 minutes) lol
