10 minute craft dash!


Phew!! Okay, that was a challenge! My sweet friend Paulina has started a new challenge called the 10 Minute Craft Dash. This challenge is *hard*, but it is so very awesome. I felt like I was on a crazy reality show. I think my husband thought I was nuts rushing around in my craft room. He was trying to talk to me, and I was saying "not now, 5 minutes left!" Haha!

I love this challenge! I take way too long to craft, and I think participating in this challenge is going to help me learn to make things a little faster and become a better crafter! This little card may not be my best, but I know the more I practice making things quickly, the better I will be at it!

This little guy took me 9 minutes and 20 seconds to complete. I stamped and cut out some Belinda's Borders scallops, layered them, added some buttons and some Bright Side alpha stickers, Stickles and rounded the corner! I wanted to use colors that were gender neutral so that the card would be super useful the next time I needed one!

Make sure to head on over and check this challenge out and see all of the details. I can't wait to see what you guys can make in 10 minutes!
Card stock: Neenah, Papertrey Ink
Stamps: Lawn Fawn Belinda's Borders
Ink: Memento, Jenni Bowlin
Etc: Lawn Fawn Bright Side alphabet stickers, Sassafras buttons, Stickles, Corner Chomper
Thank you so much for visiting!
Have an amazing day,
