In a hurry?

I know I have been so swamped lately, that I have not had time to make anything! So, a quick tip (in case you're not already familiar with this idea) for when you have to make a card "right now" for something: use a pre-colored digi! Andy Bauer, artist at The Digi Street, has some great digistamps, and he offers them as black & whites, and as a pre-colored image! Well, today I needed a thank you card, and had not a single one in my box! So, I used one of his freebies (last weeks, but he has a new one posted this week, so check it out!) to put together this card.

I liked the colors Andy had chosen for this, so I used my PSE to create the bg paper. I printed it, and then the large version of the pre-colored paper. For the big sundae, I colored over the image with similar colors of gel pens. I added some Stickles to the cherry, cut it out and applied it to the card with some pop dots. I hand wrote the sentiment, and attached it to the card with ribbon.The bottom border was run through my Cuttlebug and I used a punch for the scallops. This card took me approximately 10 minutes to make - quick and easy! 
So, be sure to jump over to Andy's blog and store! He has a ton of awesome stuff to help you out of a crunch, too! :0)
Happy weekend, and happy crafting, everyone!
