10 Minute Craft Dash Birthday Bash!

Hello, everyone! We are so excited about today's 10 Minute Craft Dash birthday hop! The hop features 20 special guests and the Craft Dash DT with 10 minute birthday creations. In addition, there will be a coordinating challenge, too! You should have come from Rachel Izakowicz's blog, and you can also start the hop, here!

  I had so much fun with this birthday theme! I just love this challenge because it makes me feel like I am on a game show! I get all nervous and move way too quickly! It is a blast!

Confession time. It took me 10 minutes and 2 seconds to finish. I went over. If this were the Price is Right, I would not win the showcase showdown. Haha! The way I was able to get the card done so quickly (aka 2 seconds over) was the coordinating dies for A Birdie Told Me, Admit One, and Critters at the Dog Park! Anything that didn't have a coordinating die, I just stamped directly on the card which created some fun dimension! I also rounded the bottom corners and added some glitter to the balloon with a Wink of Stella glitter pen. These were fast little touches that added something to a clean and simple card!

Today's hop has some great prizes:  A $50 Ellen Hutson gift certificate + a prize pack for the winning creation. Also, there are prizes for random comments left along the blog hop.

So awesome! I hope you guys try this challenge out. It is so much fun! You are allowed to pull all of your items out before the timer starts, too!

Your next stop is Laurie Willison. If you want to start at the beginning go to Paulina's blog! I can't wait to see what you guys create!
Thank you so much for visiting!
Have an amazing day,
