As You See It 95 CAS 132

Ok, so Saturday is usually my big card-making day - but not today. Today was to be devoted entirely to packing our bags for our overseas holiday to somewhere warm and relaxing, along with sending the son back to university. Still, I didn't see the harm in checking out the challenge sites over a leisurely Saturday morning coffee. Big mistake. For what did I see at As You See It but a speed challenge... surely I could find ten minutes for a speed challenge????

So in amongst digging out the suitcases, sorting the togs, getting the passports etc I kept planning in my head. What could I do in ten minutes? The other thing that kept at me was the wonderful sketch this week at CAS Colours and Sketches.

Then, as fate would have it, a big box of stuff arrived from Stampin' Up - and all I could do was open it and promise to play with it next week... but the Zoo Babies were looking out of the box at me.

Eventually, I gave in to temptation. So here it is ...

The time: 9.09

Update: Delighted to be a top pick at CAS Colours and Sketches.

Card: Blushing Bride, Whisper White, Blushing Bride DSP

  1. So gorgeous! I love the subtle pastel colour and those zoo babies are just so cute - no wonder you couldn't resist. Thanks for finding those ten minutes to link up with CC&S.

  2. Your card is so sweet! I love your color choice and those little critters are just the cutest ever!

  3. Seriously, in under ten minutes?? Wow, love this!
    Happy Vacay!

  4. What a well-planned card and well within the time limit! This is a great card for some family with a new baby girl! Thanks for joining us this week at As You See It Challenges!

  5. Gosh, don't think I've ever made a card in 9 minutes but wish I could especially if they turn out as nice as yours! Thanks for joining us at CC&S this last week. Stef x
