Soooo... Cute Maria!!! Your card as ussual is lovely.You have a real eye for designing and matching colours, textures and patterns. Thanks for making such regular posts- I enjoy looking at your creations.
Thanks also for another great Candy. Keeping my fingers crossed!!!
Lol. Lynne Lynne’s blog

ps : Have added a link to your blog on mine

Lynne Gilbert said...

Sorry Maria. Forgot to mention the time it takes for me to create a card. Depends on what its for but an original design for an order will take me one to two evenings, especially if I have one of those mental blocks. Can happen quite often!!! It's my age I think!!!
If I'm just playing with nothing in particular to do, Then I can often manage 2-3 in an evening!!

Sue Ramsay said...

Cards are beautiful Maria, love the new one too.
Like Lynne I can create loads of cards in one evening if I dont have any specific orders BUT!!!
I kinda dread anyone asking for anything specific because my mind does what my laptop does - hibernates - I think Im happiest just doing my own thing and deciding what it is when its finished lol !

Tracey said...

Hi Maria, to create a card I guess my average is about 2-3 hours (I am slow lol) but sometimes they can take days ;o)

You are linked to my blog (on the right hand side).

Wow great candy such a sweet stamp! I try not to spend too much time on one particular card, the watercolouring of images is the part that takes the longest. Today's card probably took a total of an hour and a half, a simpler card could take half an hour or less, depends what mood I am in!!

So cute stamp!

It really depend on what kind of card I am doing - if it is simple, it can take half an hour, but I have been doing one for almost 3 hours. It is depending on my imagination and ideas. If it is a good day, than things go faster. :)

Bye, Barbara

pammy jo said...

what a cute image! when i have great inspiration, like from your blog :) cards usually take around an hour. i enjoy making them, so speed isn't usually an issue for me (thankfully!)

Annelies said...

I'm a slow worker so it takes me probably 3 hours or more to finish one card. My problem is I can't sit still. When I have an idea, I have to do something else for a while and take some time to consider if it's a good idea or not. Here's my link . Thanks for a chance to win! Greetings from Belgium, Annelies

Alice said...

Becki and Alan said...

Hi Maria - I love your Blog! Hmmm... how long does t take me to create a card? Some days it can be a matter of a few minutes if I'm on a roll. Other times it can be several hours. Quite often I have several on the go at one time and flit between them, never feeling like I'm getting anywhere, till all of a sudden - several cards finished all at once!

carine said...

What a cute stamp! I've linked your post in the candy sidebar at The Paper Freak. Thanks for the chance to win!

Cheri said...

Oooops - forgot to say how long to make a card!

It typically takes me 2-3 hours total. In some cases it can take much longer (like this creation at The Paper Freak). It took me about an hour & a half just to do the doodling, then another couple of hours for coordinating papers, embellies and assembly.

Stitchinwitch said...

I can sometimes make several in an evening but other times it takes several evenings to make 1.

I blogged about your candy. So cute

Oma said...

I will blog about your candy. Really cute, cute couple!

It normally takes me anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour to make a card. It all depends if I've already got a layout planned or not. Sometimes when I make a card, I know which paper I want to use etc. but it takes a while to "get it all together."

Julie Temple said...

LOVE your Blog! Your card is adorable...cute stamp!
I can make a "simple card" in about 15 mins, but generally, they take anywhere from an hour to 3 hours, depending on the techniques used. I am a slowpoke...LOL!
I have linked you to my Blog. Thanks for the chance to win that cutie patootie stamp!

pasiakowa said...

Wow.. I came here to see beautiful cards.. and have a chance for the candy ;)

For me it usually takes something like an hour to two - with all the paper and stamps and ribbons picking ;) Depend on how complicated it is :)

All the best to you!

Hi! Thanks for sharing this awesome candy. It takes me roughly an hour to make a card, some are quicker if I already know what I want, but usually I change my mind so it took me once three days to make one card that finally came out as I wanted it.

Very cute stamp for your blog candy! It usually takes me about 20-30 minutes to make a card, depending on how difficult it is, and if I have an idea of what I'm doing. And it also depends on if the kids are asleep or not, lol!

Greetings from Estonia! Your site is just great!!!
To make a card sometimes it takes 2 hours sometimes 2 days depending on my babygirl mood. She is just 7 months old and doesn't give mommy a lot of time to play with "paper toys". Sometimes she wants to help and I have to start all project from the beginning.

I try to get 2 to 3 cards done a night, so anywhere from 30 min. to an hour per card. I have placed a link on my sidebar on my blog for your candy.
Thanks for the chance to win these cute stamps

Katarina said...

Love the card! The stamp is awesome too.

It takes me about an hour to make a card when I have a special idea in mind. Otherwise it takes longer because I can't decide. I've even left cards for days to "think over how naughty they've been", lol.
Lately with all the challenges I've entered I don't have time to be too fussy and it's actually more fun that way, even if I'm not totally satisfied with my card every time.

I've written about your candy on my blog:

Thanks for the chance to win. I will be having my own candy soon...
