Just made it!


Hope you all had a nice week so far.

Mine is all busy, busy, busy! However, I had a chance to have a go at the 10 Minute Craft Dash #31 the other day while my daughter was poorly at home. Here are the colours this week:
Colours: light yellow, bright red, green
I guess I am still in the Christmas mood so these colours just shout at me with Christmas cheer! Every time I play at 10 minute Craft Dash, I always feel like I am in some sort of game show. Nerve racking and exciting! My hands shake and my heart pounds fast, just to ensure that I stick to the 10 minute deadline. How did I do this time? Well, close! I mean very close! I finished the card in 9 minutes and 58 seconds. Phew~ and I made it!! ^_^ Here is the finished product:
10 minutes is not long. So die cuts and embossing folders certainly help to speed up a few things. I used:
  • Nellie Snellen multi frame's (MFD 020) - used the negative part 
  • Cuttlebug D'vine Swirls embossing folder
  • Sizzix Sizzlits Wreath die 655259
  • Sequins bought from pound shop
  • Chip board sentiment free from craft magazine

I love this colour combination. Very bright and cheerful! Now off to make my daughter's birthday card. You might just see that in the next couple of days! ^_^

  10. Hi Julie, apologies for missing this post and only getting round to commenting now! My Christmas was hectic and I got very behind with commenting - I'm trying to be better this year.

    Your card is fab and how you made it in under 10 mins I don't know!! It takes me a day most times to put together just one card!!!

    Best wishes for a great 2014.
