forever friends.....

A nice easy challenge for you this time at the forever friends challenge, a card in 45 mins. Now this means different things to some people. for some people, this is a quick card, for me this is ages. in fact I know this card took me far less than 45 minutes, but it's the Christmas card for my book group (hence the book page hats), and my challenge to myself is can I make all 9 that I need in 45 minutes??

I think I can.

the stamp came free with the docrafts magazine ages ago. The base card is Papermania Kraft card and I've coloured with coloursoft pencils.


  1. Clever idea - did you make them all in your 45 minutes then?


  2. Gorgeous card Joanne, I get where you're coming from with the 45mins. I have been known to take a day to make a card and I know I'm not alone, it's a great challenge.
    Love your card, soft and to the point, classy:0) xx

  3. Gorgeous card Joanne i love the colouring onto the kraft card. I love their hats too. Hope you got all 9 made. Hugs Pascale

  4. Love the crowns, such a great idea for a book group. Happy stamping Joanne in 45 mins...Annette x

  5. Hallo joanne,

    The cards you made are gorgeous !!

    Greetings, Jaimie

  6. I love this card, Joanne. I think what makes it extra special is because the image is to one side and you're not afraid to leave a blank space. Love the colouring on the craft and the dinky little hats.

  7. Very cute card! Love his newsprint crown!

  8. Gorgeous pencil coloring! It has a magical quality! Totally love the book page crowns!
