Special Guest at the 10 Minute Craft Dash

Good Morning!

I had the honor of being asked by Paulina Nakamura to be a Special Designer for her 10 Minute Craft Dash Challenge that she host on her blog Pretty Pink Posh.  I delightfully accepted as I love this challenge, but I also let her know her challenge scares me. :-) Most of you know I have professed how SLOW I am when it comes to crafting. I love this challenge because it CHALLENGES me. Which is what a challenge is suppose to do!

Paulina wanted to make the 10 minute Craft Dash in December EXTRA special. She has asked some very TALENTED ladies to join in the fun!  If you didn't see the sneak on her blog yesterday, then you can find the list and links to their blogs below!

So here is the new color palette for the new Craft Dash:


I will show you my card first and the talk about the process! :-)


Note you can pull out your supplies before you start as I have done here!  It's a good idea to have in mind what you want to do before you start the timer.  

Wreath stamp - Inkadinkado 
Sentiment Stamp - DeNami Designs

And my final timer! Can we say EEK! 
I stamped my wreath on a white panel in stick candy green.  I stamped the wreath again in real red to fussy cut the bow.  I then added twine to look as if it was hanging. All little touches that take a little extra time, but could be omitted. I added my rhinestones last as I kept one eye on my timer! *wink*

Time to complete: 9 minutes and 54 seconds
So don't let the 10 Minute Craft Dash scare you - You can gather your supplies first! :-)))) Paulina has a helpful Tips & Tricks page you may want to check out.

The Challenge runs from December 5th 6:00 a.m.  PST till December 15th 11:59 p.m. PST.

Be sure to check out the details for the 10 Minute Craft Dash on Paulina's Blog.  There is a HUGE and fabulous prize up for the winner. She has been collecting and working on this for weeks. :-)

Now for those very talented ladies participating, you may want to check out their work.  I am always curious how others create with the tight timeframe.
