Ok, I did it - finally!


I entered the 10-Minute Craft Dash.... hosted by Pretty Pink Posh at her blog - it is my first time but I have wanted to do it for a very long time... I just love to see what people are creating in less than 10 minutes and thought I could NEVER do it, but sure enough......

9 minutes and 3 seconds!!!! But take a look at my table....

Yikes, what a mess!  I was scrambling at the end... those who know me, realize this is a very simple card for me.  I might go back and embellish more before sending it to a loved one, or I might just enjoy it for the simplicity is it!

For the card, I used my new Wplus9 stamp set Pretty Patches: Tree and the coordinating die (which I discarded after starting (pushing me back a little time-wise).  The paper pad 25th and Pine by Basic Grey along with my Hero Arts ink pads in Cup-o'-Joe, field greens and punch chalk.  For the embellishments I grabbed my stash of bling and also the Candy Dots from Stampin Up to use as the ornaments on the tree.  The focal panel was die cut from Lawn Fawn's Journaling Tag (my all time fav at this moment).

Hope you all get to try this craft dash - now that I have gotten over the initial shock, I will be doing more and more of them for sure!

happy Crafting
