Time Out - 10 Minute Fail!

Hello bloggers!

Time Out's latest challenge is an absolute nightmare for a creative procrastinater like myself: Autumn with the optional twist of Speed Stamping.  

I seem to remember there used to be a card challenge called '10 minute card dash' and I never entered as the thought of making a card in so little time filled me with horror.  Sometimes it takes me 20 minutes just to decide where to put the sequins:



Of course, what I planned and what I produced are two totally different things. I made a circle mask and envisioned a crisp, stamped circle of WMS Autumnal leaves with a PTI sentiment perfectly placed underneath.  Unfortunately the stamping left a blurry edge as the ink didn't adhere to the textured card stock too well. In panic I reached for the brown marker to create some faux stitching around the edge. It looked like something a 5 year old had made. So I rooted through my stash for a smaller circle, cut it out and plonked it on to the card case. In total it took me 14 minutes and 12 seconds. Considering I had to make the mask, die cut the panel, create the base, do the stamping and look for stuff inbetween I don't think I've done that bad a job! What do you think?

Enjoy the rest of your Friday!

Difficulties in online business آن لائن کاروبار میں مشکلات

Doing business online is a proper and effective way, while we always come across some difficulties. They may be:

Difficulty Developing Relationships

While doing business on the Internet can open up markets all over the world, it can be more difficult to develop ongoing business relationships. While technology such as video conferencing allows you to see individuals via computer screen, it still lacks the personal touch of meeting someone in person. Or you can find a reliable e-commerce platform to help you find business partners as they own much resource.

Privacy and Security Concerns

Even if you take precautions such as setting up a secure payment page for customer purchases, you still may be susceptible to unscrupulous individuals who hack your system and steal your customers' private information. This can be used to drain your customers' bank accounts or steal their identities. You may not be able to do business with prospects who don't trust making purchases online.

Frankly my Dear...This Calls for a Rainbow...

Hello again, Third card of the week - can you tell I'm kid-free at the moment? I'm always a sucker for a rainbow so how could I resist this week's Card Concept pic which features a a whole heap of rainbow coloured cupcakes? I've used the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches:




I blended a rainbow background using distress inks for this clean and layered card and added a bold sentiment from CAS-ual Friday's 'Frankly.' The houndstooth background is from WMS.  I'd say it's pretty obvious how I've been inspired but in case you're wondering, it's the black and white background and the burst of rainbow colour!
Happy stamping fellow inkers!
