10 mins = 1 card and a whole lotta mess!

thank you stars


I may not be American, but I'm joining in the Pre-Independence Day celebrations with a 10 Minute Craft Dash Challenge! Clearly Besotted Stamps are sponsoring the challenge and as part of the CBS DT I'm joining in the fun too.

The theme for the challenge is 'Stars' and seeing as it's July 4th soon, I figured that I'd make my card fit in with the Indpendence Day theme with some stars and stripes. Now if you've never done a 10 minute craft dash before let me assure you that it's fun but amazingly chaotic. You'll surprise yourself at how much you can create in 10 mintues and the mess you can create in that short space of time too! Ha!

I had no real idea of what I was going to create as I set the timer on my phone. The only things I had prepared was I had my set ready, some inks and card and decided upon a mini 3x3 card. It's not cheating, but a 3x3 card just seems easier to whip up in a time restricted challenge for some reason. :)

I was cutting it pretty fine with this challenge, finishing in 9 mins 53 seconds. Next time I may plan a little more in my head beforehand! 

Be sure to play along if you can; it's not only fun, but this challenge has the added bonus of being sponsored by Clearly Besotted Stamps so one lucky participant will win 2CBS stamp sets of their choice! :)

Having so many of your Clearly Besotted girls join in this challenge made me so giddy, but also nervous! You all are incredibly talented and I KNEW your creations would be amazing. You all did such a fabulous job- 3 x 3 or not, this card is perfect, Aimes!
