Hope your summer is off to a wonderful start! Mine is, 'cuz I am offically on holidays! No big plans...just some much needed "R&R".
I've heard a lot of paper crafters say that they don't have time to create at certain times during the year, but I want to show you just how quick and easy a card can come together using one of Meljen's Designs "pre-coloured images". That's exactly what I used to make this card for our new challenge "Button It Up!", {use buttons on your project}.

This sweet image is called "Johnny Bird Boots, Color" and you can find it right here.
I always find it so much easier to make up a quick project by using a pre-drawn sketch, and there are a lot of great sites online where you can find these for free! I usually buy my designer paper in coordinating packs, so matching up patterns is pretty simple. When it comes to adding a sentiment, most of the time I simply type it up myself on the computer and play around with the different fonts I have until I find one that I think suits the mood of the card I've made. From start to finish this card took about half an hour to make & cost me mere cents! Less time then jumping into my car, driving to the store, trying to pick out just the right card and paying for it! {Can you believe the price of cards these day!}. Plus, I have to admit I tend to like giving a one of a kind card!
Well, I hope I've encouraged you to give our Meljen's challenge a try, even if you find your days busy!



This is so adorable! Cute image and design.


Sweet card, great colors and design!
