Hey Chickie in a flash or is it dash????

Hey,

**Woohoo So Happy My fun little Chickie card was a favorite on the 10 Minute craft Dash...quite the honor considering I can NEVER make a 10 minute card thanks ladies for liking my card I am honored**

Well, I had no more than 10 minutes to spare today on my papercrafting hobby. It was a full day, so I retreated to the crafting space to get it out of my system I guess. :-))) It's hard for me to create quickly and create CAS, but here it goes.
With a white card base as a starting point. I used the 10 minute craft dash colors as my inspiration and knew which paper stack I owned to work from. I added a strip of patterned paper to the bottom adding some pink twine just above. It was one of the things that almost tripped me up as well as the twine bow on Miss Chickie's head. The twine didn't want to stay nor did it want to lay straight! 

I stamped Miss Chickie and fussy cut her out and added her to a punched scalloped circle and trimmed the edge. (I figured it would be faster to punch my shape rather than mess with die-cutting). I tied a tiny twine bow and added a pearl to her head. All that was left was to stamp the sentiment. 
My old school smart phone with sticky prints from little sticky fingers! :-)))
As you can see, I almost didn't make the challenge time. It opened my eyes as to how fast 10 minutes goes.

As mentioned, I used the 10 Minute Craft Dash as my inspiration.

Card Makin' Mama's : Be Punny

It was hard for me to not add more, and I very well may have if there had been more time.

Thanks for letting me share my quick make with you. I sure need more practice at CAS and timeliness! :-)))
Have a fantastic weekend,
~Tammy~
