busy little bee.. 6 cards in an hour

Right well I am on a roll.. so why stop right!! hehe
The lovely Alicia set herself a challenge the other day to make 6 cards in an hour and then she opened the challenge up to us... I saw Aussie Loz and Annette make their Christmas cards and so I thought I'd jump on in with my own Christmas cards... ta da!

well I like to have coloured images on my cards... but there was NO WAY I was going to get 6 images coloured in an hour + the cards made, so I used these beautiful Pixies from Charmed Cards and Crafts .. they are available in black and white and coloured images which is great for times like this. So At 11.25am I opened up my Pixies images folder on my computer and the clock started ticking... I printed 6 out on one sheet of glossy photo paper...then set to work making the card... as I was going I thought that I was making it a bit complicated and would never make it in an hour. BUT at 12.20 I had them all stuck down and the sentiment written - So I decided to "quickly" add my doodling/ stitching around the outsides. I finished this at 12.24 with only seconds to spare till the time changed till 12.25. so I was pretty amazed that I managed to do it!

Here is a closer look....

Thanks Alicia that was FUN! :D

OK.. there is one MORE post coming today... My Oh, Alice card is scheduled to pop up at 3pm :D
