When time is not on your side

but you need to make a quick card for someone, I always reach for my Sugar and Spice 'In a word' set.  I like that this set contains a number of sentiments, all great for cardmaking, to use in various sizes and fonts. 

I recently needed to make a card in a hurry for a friend who had suddenly been taken ill and this is the end result:

I used the 'Get well soon' sentiment from the set which I stamped in versafine ink onto a tab I'd punched out from cardstock. 

I added a ready made topper for ease, chose and cut some co-ordinating background paper, added a length of ribbon, stuck it all together onto my card, gave the card some fancy edges with a border punch and hey presto: a get well soon card made in under ten minutes.

Nic :-)
