MCT ~ Made In Mintues

Hello crafty friends! Long time since I have been around! Well I can share this now since we are home but my family and I went to a destination wedding for a special couple in our lives!  The wedding was absolutely PERFECT and BEAUTIFUL! We also decided to make it a family vacation as well. It was a well needed break for us all! We got back last week and we all know how things get before and after, complete mayhem happens. Plus my counter tops for my craft room finally were installed 2 days before we left for our trip! So I was trying to arrange my room so when we got back, I could craft with ease. Of course I did my wife/mom duties first! I will posting in a few weeks pictures of my room and how & what I used for organization. Get ready!
So today is My Creative Time's Made In Minutes. This is when Emma and the design team shares with you simple and fast creations that literally can be made in minutes!
For my card today I wanted to make a card for my son's. He broke his leg during soccer practice! Poor little guy will being dealing with this for 6 weeks! Let's be honest here, I feel for his mom maybe more! We all know how it is taking care of our babies! I thought the cute little plane from Fun Paper Airplane was perfect to use for a 9 year old little boy! Aren't they constantly making these things? At least in my house the 9 year old and the 40 something boy are constantly making them! LOL! I used the coordinating stamp set Plane & Simple for my sentiment on the top and then pulled out an oldie but goodie stamp set, Pain, Pain Go Away. Love this older set Emma has and shriek how you can mix and match all of her products! Plus a sneak for the upcoming release! EEK!

Materials Used:
September Sneak Peak
Paper ~ PTI
Ink ~ Stampin Up and VersaFine

  9. Wow! You have been busy and I bet wanting to get to use the new counters. So sad your little guy broke a leg...not fun at all. He will love the special card Mom made for him! The Pain set is one I go to a lot for cards...I keep all of my favorite sets of sentiments together where I don't need to search for them. Great card!
