Rush Job...

What is it with my kids?  Why do they leave it to the last minute before asking me to make a card for them?  My daughter was bad enough - she gave me 12 hours... but my son? 12 minutes!!!
And they are both very specific about what they do and/or don't want!
The brief:- 
  • Time limit - 12 minutes
  • Must be red and blue
  • Must have a least one tractor on it
  • Must be big
A tractor? At such short notice?
... then I remembered last week our village had a charity tractor run, and I'd taken photographs and make a collage for my 'project life' - PERFECT.
I quickly opened the photos and edited them in 'word'     ~     printed them out after I'd digitally added a sentiment     ~     found a red card blank and splattered it with red and blue ink     ~     mounted the photos on the card, added twine and a brad     ~     stamped a sentiment     ~     all done!
Do they appreciate me? yeah they do...
Will they do it again? probably...
My, 12 minute "but I need it NOW!" card!
