The concept is to create a card in 10 minutes or less. You can pull all your supplies out ahead of time, and start the timer when you actually start crafting... easy enough, right?
10 Minutes goes by pretty fast, my friends.
I started with one card - which I'll show you at the bottom of the post - but had to give up on it for this challenge.
So I started over.
I've been playing with my Pink Persimmon stamps, so that is what I reached for. Oh, and Crate Paper. Because you can never go wrong with Crate Paper!
My time? 10 minutes and 30 seconds. That's right, I went over! But I could have stayed under the time limit if I had been able to give up on tying my button with twine.
The first time around, I sat down and started casually making my card using the challenge colours. Then, about halfway through I remembered that I was supposed to have been timing myself. Oops.
Sometimes, I am *so* out to lunch.
So, I finished card number one, completely giving up on the challenge:
This one is for a friend at the gym who is just about to go on her maternity leave with her first baby:
It doesn't qualify for the challenge, but at least I got something done for her... and actually, I *love* the colour scheme for a neutral card (she doesn't know what she's having). So it was, of course, a happy accident!
So there you have it... a new challenge to try out! It's really fun, and gets your heart rate up, which is an added bonus!
I hope your week is off to great start, and thanks so much for popping by!
