5 Minute Friday: Squeal!

I'm starting something new on my blog.  It's an idea completely inspired by (and stolen from) my friend Kate, over at i {heart} papers.  On Fridays she shares a card she's whipped up in about 5 minutes on the i {heart} papers blog (well, she does when her very dedicated Social Media Coordinator schedules them for her...sometimes they get bumped to show off new lovelies in the store!).  I kind of fell in love with this idea, because I love to create quick cards!

So for my first ever 5 Minute Friday, I'm sharing a card I made with the ridiculously adorable Paper Smooches set Green Acres.  I used my favorite brown ink, Memento Rich Cocoa to stamp that crazy cute pig, and colored him with my Spectrum Noir markers.  I popped the piggie layer up on an Action Wobble (so when you're looking at the card, he wobbles all over the place).  I used some Basic Grey paper, and clipped the sentiment on with a mini clothespin from Canvas Corp.

Seriously....veeeery close to 5 minutes, from start to finish!  It honestly took me longer to write this post than it did to make the card :)

Card Stock: Kraft (Neenah)
Patterned Paper: Konnichiwa (Basic Grey)
Ink: Memento Rich Cocoa
Coloring Medium: Spectrum Noir
Accessories: Mini Clothespin (Canvas Corp), Jute Twine

Pin It

Squeal is right! So cute and I love those springs. And I love even more that you schedule my posts for me. :-)

Dang. I'm impressed! I don't think I've EVER made a card in five minutes! And if I did, it certainly wouldn't be this adorable!
