MCT ~ Made In Minutes

Good morning! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! We did even though it literally rained, okay there were torrential downpours, the entire weekend! If I see another drop of rain in the next day or so, I may seriously loose my mind!  The good thing is that we spent tons of time as a family and that was awesome!
Today is Made in Minutes over at My Creative Time. This is when Emma and the design team make cards that literally are made with in 20 minutes or so. I think the longest part in making my card was my little pom~pom and trust me, that was less than 5 minutes! I was fortunate enough to have a white cone and ice cream scoop die cut already cut out in white. Yep ~ that is how I made my birthday party hat.  I snipped the top part of the ice cream scoop and made the brim for my hat. These dies can be found in the stamp/die set, You Make Life Sweet. My sentiments are from Chalkboard Birthday. I daringly cut the candle stamp so I can have the sentiment and the image separate. I am always so scared to do this but I took a chance and I am happy I did it! I white heat embossed them of course. Of course I had to use the Stitched Rectangular Frame Dies & More. That's it ~ super simple and I think it turned out pretty cute too!
Materials Used:
Paper ~ PTI
Ink ~ SU and VersaMark

Well that is it for today, make sure you head over to Emma's blog to see what the designers have created!
