MCT ~ Made In Minutes

Good morning! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! The sun was shining here and the snow is melting ~ yay!!!! The temperature is going to be in the 40's this week and let me tell you ~ we all are going to think it is a heat wave!! Whoo hoo!

Today is Made In Minutes over at My Creative Time with Emma and the design team! This is when we create any project in literally minutes. I have a very simple card and made with a some scraps. I am venturing into some water coloring. I die cut my little shamrocks are from a practice piece of paper using the You're My Pot of Gold stamp/die set.  The ribbon was a piece that I cut for a project along time ago and was too short. Then the embossed rectangular was a mishap...goodness this is sounding more like recycle project. LOL! I did fix my hemp around my ribbon after I took this picture, I was in a rush to snap some pictures before I headed to the dreaded grocery store that was packed by the way. But never worry they were giving away free samples of Starbucks Shamrock Frappuccino's. Anyway, just a real simple project that you can make in minutes if you had too!
Materials Used:
Paper ~ PTI
Ribbon ~ Etsy shop
Ink ~ Hero Arts and VersaFine
Darice St. Pats folder
clear embossing powder

That is it for me today! Make sure you head over to Emma's blog and see what the ladies have made in minutes too!

  6. Sweetheart, as always you turn the ordinary into the extraordinary! This is a prime example of how your talent shines.
    Love everything you do my friend. you are an artist. xxx

  7. Oh no...not the dreaded store......eeeekkkk! I feel the exact same way and would almost rather clean the toilet (I said almost) than go grocery shopping!! I really need to speak to management at my store...Starbucks samples? That might make the trip a little more bearable!
    Okay, on to your card, which is totally adorable. I love the embossed background, super cute. And your little shamrocks are great along with that bright pop of orange. Very cute my sweet friend!
