TIME OUT Reminder ...

I'm popping by this morning to let you know that you still have time to join in with the current challenge at TIME OUT Challenge ...

Autumn with the optional twist of speed stamping.

The optional twist is all about creating a card in 10 minutes or less but, of course, you can enter without the twist.  I tried with the twist for my first attempt and was doing well until it came to tying a bow!  This time I've created a one layer card using a stencil, stamp and marker pen.  How long did this one take ...

... six minutes!

I used:
PaperArtsy Stencil by Lin Brown
Distress Inks - mustard seed, carved pumpkin, candied apple and mowed lawn
Pitt Artist pen for the doodle border.

I've had fun being involved with this challenge and hope that you will join in.  Why not check out the blog to see more inspiring projects from the design team and check out how many took up the optional twist!
