10 Minute Craft Dash

So yesterday I decided to attempt my first ever 10 Minute Craft Dash (what the heck was I thinking!?) The colors were just too beautiful to pass up though, and I figured I might as well give it a shot…

I think this is a great challenge, especially because sometimes you’ll need to whip up a card for someone in about 10 minutes, you don’t always have time to putz around.

Anyways, here is my card…

The colors just look like a baby card to me. I have to be honest, I’m not too proud of this card but I just keep reminding myself it was my first attempt at a 10 minute craft dash and to not be too hard on myself. I kept it (obviously) very simple. The card stock is all just scraps I had laying around (oddly enough they were right by each other..what a coincidence!) It is probably hard to tell from the photo but the center panel is navy, it’s a fairly dark navy but navy none the less. I heat embossed the sentiment ‘hey diddle diddle someone new someone little.’ on the light blue card stock from an adorable stamp set that I bought at my local Michael’s (I can’t seem to find the packaging at the moment) and did the same with the cute little onesie on the pink card stock (the onesie is from a different stamp set and I’m afraid I can’t find the packaging to give you a name for that either…talk about disorganization!) Finished it off with some pink and blue twine (I’m pretty sure it is Doodlebug Twine) and that is that! It took me 8:22.6 minutes to put this card together. I think in the future I’ll just try and slow down and take my time a bit more, I might have better results.

I wanted to post this last night but I finally got my act together and talked myself into being somewhat productive. So I went down to my car to go grocery shopping (shepherd’s pie for dinner last night) and my car wouldn’t start. (Doofus me left the light on and killed the battery >.<) Luckily my boyfriend was almost home and he came to the rescue. But, by the time we got my car going and got home from the store and I cooked dinner it was pretty much bedtime.

But anyways, hope you all enjoyed my pitiful attempt at the 10 minute craft dash challenge (I’m sure it made you chuckle) and I’ll be back later today with some more challenges. I’ve found so many great blogs! 😀
