Quick can still be cute.

I needed a quick card today for a birthday party that my son was heading out to. You would THINK that with the amount of cards I make, that I'd have this handy, but the stash was depleted.

Lucky for me, Beate's back to her weekend sketch challenges, so I knew exactly what to do.

I knew I wanted to use my new Pun Fun set from Stampin Up which I bought for expressly this purpose. And because I love to watercolor lately.

The image was stamped on Confetti White paper with Brilliance Graphite Black ink. I watercolored with Basic Grey, Old Olive, So Saffron and Soft Sky reinkers.
I covered the flames out the back of the rocket with my Sakura Stardust pen. The three jumbo eyelets were set with the help of my Crop O Dile and the sentiment "Happy Birthday" is from Eat Cake also by Stampin Up.
Again, I got this done in a half hour, so I'm really excited, but I know I want the chance to play with this sketch again at length. I have so so much on my to do list right now (its mass production time again...) So, I'm not sure I'll be able to do it this week, but its filed into my "go to's" for the next time I need to start something fresh.
Can I just say I've been having SUCH a laugh reading all the ding dong moment posts below. So many of these are things that I've done. There's also been a few doozies that will take your breath away. Be sure to read through for some good laughs. I have absolutely been the one to put the milk in the pantry and the cereal in the fridge, so that gave me a good laugh in particular.

Here's another one from me. Last week, I woke up on the couch at 2 am. Stumbled upstairs to take out my contacts, and found the case full of cleaning solution, which I promptly dumped out. Looked up into the mirror to take out my contacts, and realized my glasses were on, which means, that I had dumped my contacts, you've got it, down the drain! Of course, last pair, expired prescription, so now I've got to fit an appointment to the eye doctors into my crazy schedule. So NOT what I needed right now. Hey, at least my funky red glasses are so cute in the meantime!
