Well I'm back again this week! Don't get used to this super frequent blogging - work will catch up with me sooner or later.....! Speaking of which, y'know the whole tea-stained timetable thing of Monday? Well I was given a brand spanking new one the next day due to some changes that had been made - the whole glass half full approach pays off sometimes I guess! :)
But enough of me spilling tea over everything. You came for a card, right? Today I present a card that came with a challenge...a 10 minute challenge. I'm participating as a guest designer for the 10 Minute Craft Dash!
This fun challenge is hosted by the sweet Paulina and Ginny. Challenge #2 is a colour challenge with the colours in the graphic above. For a slow-coach like me, time was a real challenge but the colours are so fresh and inspiring that once I'd got a sketch in my head and got my supplies ready (including a random paper clip thingy on my desk), I hit start on my timer and just kept going no matter what.
I finished in 9 minutes 32 seconds so had a few seconds left to ummm and ahhh a little over gem placement :)
Now this challenge has made me think that it is possible to squeeze in crafty sessions if I'm super organised and have an idea in my head already. I actually had more fun than I imagined and didn't stress out at all!
So I challenge you to join in the 10 Minute Craft Dash Challenge too! If you do, not only may you surprise yourself, but you may win a $20 gift certificate for Neat & Tangled!
Thanks so much for stopping by today and thanks to Paulina and Ginny for inviting and challenging me to this fun idea!
Catch ya later!
