10-Minute Craft Dash 17


I’m not sure this challenge is for me.  Or it could just be that I chose to do my project during the lunch hour.  With 3 children around.  Who are hungry and eating lunch.  And who keep needing refills on their drinks.  Maybe I just wasn’t prepared enough.  Maybe I should have eaten all my lunch first.

Whatever the reasons (all of the above, no doubt!), this 10-Minute Craft Dash challenge really made my adrenaline go crazy!

10MCD-17-timeBut I did finish it.
In a frantic pace.
With only seconds to spare.
But no sanity intact.
Just sayin’.

And here is what I can create in less than 10 minutes, including 2 breaks to refill lunch glasses with lemonade:


Thank goodness this Tulip Border folder makes for a quick decorative background frame!  That quickity-quick Vagabond machine really came in handy for this card, too.

I used one of my Lil’ Inker Stitched Mats Rectangle dies for the focal panel, sponging the edges with some Aqua Mist ink.  Used images from the Tremendous stamp set and a sentiment from the Beautiful Butterflies stamp set.  I stamped the dark flowers using Berry Sorbet ink and then ‘stamped-off’ to create the lighter-colored flowers.


Thanks for stopping by today. 😉
