Here's my not-so-great attempt. For those of you who color well...SHOW ME HOW! This is a great challenge for me because I have a 7 week old who feels that my attention should be hers 27/7.

Great challenge! I guess this would be a good time to use up some of the images I stamped when playing around with various new sets!

Okay--I "cheated" by using a pre-stamped background, and already colored image! But it sure went together quick! I guess my own time-saving hint is to stamp extra images, and sentiments, and keep them in a little photo album(the cheap $1 kind from JoAnn's). Pretty printed papers speed things along, too!

I made three of these cards in 20 minutes. This was a great challenge for me because usually I am VERY slow. Thanks!

That's a good tip!! I think that's where my biggest problem is! I try to think of something AND get it done in a short amount of time! My other problem would have to be a lack of space! Someday I'll have a designated stamp room, closet, or even corner!!

I love that idea of keeping them in a little photo album! I just throw mine in my scraps box and only find them when I'm digging for something else! Thanks for the tip!

Great challenge..I REALLY should not be stamping..but I threw in a load of laundry and whipped these up. Been thinking about using this bunny since I dug it out a few days ago.
Scanner doesn’t like the buttons on the second card, so the colors are not true.
My tip:I stamp an entire sheet with an image, color it at my leisure, then cut up, and run through my Xyron, then I have images to whip up a card on a moments notice.

Great idea Jen! It was a bit of a challenge...

Here are a couple that I just did (combining w/ CC54 - some great color combo that some cool chick came up with - LOL!)

Fun! I'm already kind of a speed stamper so I tried to be quicker than usual! I was going to add a tag to the ribbon but ran out of time.

Coast to Coast makes just about the fastest card there is!
I am so bad tho. I will take an hour and just cut paper. I have 30-50 prefolded cards in all colors at any given time. I have a bunch of pieces to mat with pre-cut in all colors. I have preprinted papers that are precut. When i'm ready to stamp i like to be able to just sit down and start stamping without having to cut and trim first. It is wonderful! lol

This is my first challenge. I've uploaded my card to the gallery but don't know how to post a link to it. I clicked on where Jen said to go get instructions but got Page "Cannot Be Found" message. Looked on the Home page and couldn't find anything. May have overlooked it? If someone would please give me some EASY instruction on how to post a link, I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks in advace.

PLEEEESE, let me know when get a good system for organizing scraps. I really need help in that area. Right now, all I do with mine is put them in the folder with it's same color.

Thanks for doing this Jen. Between this challenge and my first VSN I realized how fast I CAN come up with a card. Never thought about it much before, but figured if I wanted to make a "good" card, I would have to set aside a chunk of time. (I guess the chunk part comes in for the interruptions where living interrupts my creative juices.) Here's mine:

I'm new to the Challenges (but 2nd today!), so just trying it out. I need to build up my "just because" card supply, and this will be a great way to do it! I need a jump start...

Thanks for the ideas!!

This one was more like 5 minutes. Took me longer to get the stuff out than it did to make the card. I do like how it turned out.

Oh my... I haven't stamped in WEEKS! I've been in Grad School and then the holiday mania so it felt great to jump back in. (I was having major withdrawal from ink fumes!)

Anyway, I saw this one a while ago and had it on my mind to make but I can't find the link!!!! Grrr! It only took me a few minutes to make but I've wasted tons of time now looking for the original! Please PM me if you know what it is.

I don't have a birdie stamp so I had to hand draw it!

Lovely on a Limb
Anyway, hope you like it.
