This is the first challenge I have ever entered and it's not like I have all my supplies in one place! I stamp on the kitchen table. My paper and stamps are in the office/bedroom, and my punches are in the closet. My stamp pads have their own storage tower, and all my tools are in the basket (except for the ones I forgot to put back after the last workshop I attended.)
Of course, I needed those tools and had to hunt them up, find a new refill for my tape runner, figure out what size to cut the paper, eat some chocolate ice cream, etc. (You get the picture?) So, I'm pretty sure it took me about 30 minutes to gather my supplies (yeah, that sounds good). Then I had to clean and condition the stamps 'cause they're made of rubber (that took another 30 minutes). I dropped the paper on the floor 3 or 4 times, had to go to the bathroom, find the cardstock I just cut out and immediately lost, answer the phone, and be pestered by the boys...So I REALLY just spent about 30 minutes on the card. tee hee

The card is really much lighter and brighter in real life, but I have to depend on my son to take my pictures. I wanted to add extra light and he kept insisting the flash on his camera was enough light. Go figure - he's 31 and thinks he knows it all!
I hope you enjoy my card. Go check out the other entries and meet the new design team. You'll be impressed.
