How long to make a card?

I had a friend in one of the yahoo groups I'm in ask that question--How long does it take me to make a card. Hmm...I honestly have no idea so I told her I'd time today's card but here's what I guessed it would be~
  • 5+ hours to pick out a stamp/image
  • 1 + hours to pick out paper
  • 1 + hours to pick out a sketch/layout
  • probably around an hour or so to color an image--really depends on the image
  • 10 minutes to put it all together
  • 2 mintues to add sparkle!
I got lucky and didn't have to do the 5+ hours to pick out the image on this card as I already had it printed and on my desk to color up next, From Millan.Net!  This one also didn't as long to pick out my paper as I had it picked out once I started to color. 

Time was about 1 hour, 11 minutes. Which seems way too short for me..LOL! I think I will time the next card I make too because this one went together really easy for me, which usually they don't! LOL!!

I chose another sketch from my saved files--this one is from The Little Paper Shop that is no longer in business.

Have a super sparkly day!!From Millan.Net

I would love to know how long it takes people to make a card! Your so right Danni on your calculations! The talent out in blogland is amazing, so it must take them twice as long as mine do!LOL Your card reminds me of your daughter!! Long, dark hair with adorable little eyes. Love the colours you used!

Gorgeous card, Danni. Love the papers and the image too. You must be well pleased with your record breaking card making speed.

Too funny about the timing - I know sometimes picking the image, then the paper can take forever. And don't even get me started if I want to find a sketch! Very cute card Danni

That is so funny but true! I also love when they ask how much cheaper it is making your own cards vs. buying them. BAHAHAAA! They have no idea that they are holding a $50.00 card in their hands! KWIM? Great card Danni! Thanks for sharing.
