Really quick birthday set...

Hi there bloggers!
Yesterday my little one was invited to a birthday party and although I did get the presents in the morning, I had other things on so I only had about 45 minutes to make a card and wrap the presents.
A bit of a challenge but it worked out fine I think as I made the card in super-speedy 10 minutes and made gift tags to match in a few minutes as well which left me with a good 20 minutes to wrap the presents and grab my kids to head off *lol* 





I used the Mat stack one die as well as the By the Numbers die from PTI, the star punches are Fiskars and SU, the large oval is a punch by SU. Papers are Papermania Capsule Collection Blueberry Pie and I used some ribbon from my stash. Stamps are by PTI, Big Birthday wishes and Border and Corners Ovals. 
As I said, it was very quick, but not too bad, what do you think?

Well Alex, I am well impressed.....it takes me 10 minutes to decide which card blank to use, never mind make the whole card. Yes, I am a snail in the world of cardmaking, lol. You did a fab job though, well done Speedy Gonzales :) CoB

Perfect bold birthday card for a 4 year old boy, Alex, and I love the matching envelope too. Your gift tags are very attractive and the whole ensemble looks like it took a couple of hours to make! Hugs, Lesley
