{ 10 Minute Craft Dash }



Paulina and Ginny are starting a brand new bi-monthly challenge called the "10 Minute Craft Dash". It's exactly how it sounds, you will have ten minutes (after you gather your supplies) to create a crafty item. It can be a tag, card, project, just has to be under 10 minutes.

Paulina asked me to participate in their first challenge and here is my card.

Time to complete: 9:47

I am usually pretty fast, but 10 minutes! It was a challenge. I used bits and pieces left over from other projects that I keep on my desk in a little container. All I had to do was stamp and cut out the image and words. I even had few minutes left over to sew, and that includes removing the  large brad because I couldn’t sew with it in place. I did move a little faster than normal and I kept looking at the timer.
I am using a brand new stamp set called Eat Chocolate by Technique Tuesday.

This was really fun. I hope you give it a try.

Paulina has all the details on her blog and links to other participants in this challenge: Pretty Pink Posh

Challenge starts: Wednesday, August 15th.
Deadline: August 25th, 11:59pm, PST.
