Halloween CAS cards--super fast!

So I had promised dear Jean at Altered Pages a new
Halloween kit, and had in mind a couple of things,
but time . . . well, it got away from me.

***sigh***

EXCEPT my daughter had a violin lesson, and hey, thirty
minutes is thirty minutes--why not make a bunch of CAS
cards?



Postcards, a regular sized card, and mini cards that
are the size of a postcard (4x6) folded in half. The
Altered Pages images are so cute, they don't need a bunch
of embellishing, anyway. A little black ink, a little lace,
and some Basic Grey papers from a few years back. Okay,
from quite a few years back--these are from 2005. I'm
going to punch holes in the mini cards, and use them for
treat bag tags.

I don't know how many cards you can crank out in thirty
minutes--I'm not that fast--but seven is a BUNCH for me!
How many cards can a CAS maker make if a CAS maker would
CAS cards . . . sorry, I need some coffee . . . maybe a
nap would be a better idea?

;)

Challenges:
Outlawz CAS (having a party right now, by the way):
using something old that's been lurking in your stash!
Little Darlings Challenges--Halloween or Fall
The Paper Shelter--Halloween
Clear It Out Challenge--Halloween
Tuesday Throwdown--Halloween
Karen's Doodles--Trick or Treat
My Craft Spot--Too Cute to Spook!

Have a wonderful weekend, my imaginary friends!

You've created seven cards in thirty minutes, that's a lot! You are certainly a very creative person to come up with that number that quick.
