~11 seconds to spare~

tappa tappa tappa tappa tappa tappa tappa....

That's the sound of me desperately inking up a HUMONGOUS background stamp with a Memento Ink Dew Drop when I

dove in today for...

(while mentally placing a larger ink pad in my "virtual mind cart" to order  online later...) ;)

(9 minutes, 49 seconds)

You never heard such desperate tapping!!! LOL

It was my SECOND attempt, mind you....because my first card was CRASH AND BURN.

Note to self:make sure you have enough letter stickers to spell what you want.

Don't wait until the last "y" of Happy Birthday to realize you only have one "y" which was used for "Happy".


That's ok, I like this second card better.

Live and learn, right?

There's still some time left to dive got 10 minutes, right?

  1. Marlena, this card is great! That background is super fun and I love that verse. :)
