Suddenly Saturday Evening!

Could it already be Saturday evening?   The time seems to go by so quickly these days!  Today I went to an all day scrap booking session. I met some wonderful new people, and discovered some amazing new techniques.  I feel so fortunate to have been able to spend a whole day away from home, working on my scrap book.  Besides making cards, scrap booking is my other favorite crafting obsession.

Today I have a simple card that I made for the 10-minute-craft-dash. This is such a fun challenge, I would encourage you to pop over and meet Paulina at Pretty Pink & Posh .  She is a wonderful young woman who encourages quick and fun cards which is  such a fun challenge.

I made my card following the sketch I found at freshly made sketches.  I used the colors suggested at the . 
I used my little dot embossing folder from Darce, and the sentiment stamp I bought at Target. I also added  little pink pearls to glam it up!!

For a quick little card I just love how it turned out.  I am thankful to Pauline for offering this little quickie challenge. Sometimes I spend so much time wondering if I should use this or that, and this challenge helped me to put out a card in 8 minutes, 37 seconds.  Wahoo!!

I am entering this card in her challenge and also in the following challenges:
