10MCD #10 ~ God Bless You!

So I thought to myself last night why not have a go at the new 10 Minute Craft Dash colors and start my weekend off with a frenzied few minutes in my little art studio! Whew...this challenge really gets you movin and groovin!!! I couldn't pass up the colors this go around, too pretty. So here's my hold your breath, jump in with both feet, have no fear, but...the clock is ticking card.


I started with my gray card base and layered on this cute colorful daisy panel of Lasting Impressions cardstock. Added a paper doily topped with a scrappling of a felt heart border that's been laying around here far too long. Stamped and punched my sweet little SU bird. Lost the wing somewhere in the shuffle...panick set in...don't look for it punch a new one!!! Added the sentiment praying it would be straight ~ no turning back now. Sparkle...it needed sparkle. The silver backing of the gems was peeling off all wonky and uneven, what's up with that it almost put me over the time limit. But I made it tah dah!!!


Enjoy your weekend. I hope you'll stop by on Monday for the debut of my monthly special feature for DeNami  ~ Button Boutique! ~Lisa

You did this beautiful card in 10 minutes?? I'm not sure I could pick the paper out in 10 minutes? (Let alone find my bird punch!)

This card is SOOO SWEET, Lisa!!! LOVE all of the layers and how you made use of scraps you had sitting around!!! I just played along in this challenge for the first time too. Haven't posted my card yet, but let me just say I almost had an anxiety attack just knowing that timer was ticking away! HA!

Geez Lisa, that does sound like a mad rush but look what you made! How totally fantastic! Love the heart border and that bird is fabulous (I have it too)!

LOVE this card, Lisa! LOVE how you used the PP for the wing and that big lace doily!

Lisa , I only believe you did this in under ten ...because you show prof. ( I am just kidding ,I love how you show us the time)
This is adorable , love the bird and felt hearts. I used the heart border on my card the other day because it always looks so sweet on your cards, you inspire me.
Do you have everything ready before you start timing? Looks like fun!

Oh my goodness, I am speechless. I am SUPER impressed you were able to finish all of this and still had .3 seconds to spare! No one would ever guess this card was made within 10 minutes- it's such a beauty!

Thank you for playing in the 10 Minute Craft Dash, Lisa. Can't wait for your post to go live tomorrow on the DeNami blog!

That almost was over 10 minutes:) LOOOOOOOOOOOOVE the turn out--totally worth running the clock all the way!! Beautiful colors and that birdie is just precious:) LOVE x10000!

LOL! :-D I don't mean to mock your pain, but that was quite a descriptive narrative. I'm glad you made it in time! ;-) And nicely done, too. This is a pretty, pretty card. I love the elements you used. I hate it when the gems slide around on the glue dots - so irritating. Nice job on this one! ;-)

Jinny Newlin said...

LOL! You rock, girl! LOVE your crafty description! Your bits of felt and shine are the perfect finishing touches, too!

Kelly Griglione said...

Ooooh, those colors are divine!! Swooning over that lime green felt!

Colleen Dietrich said...

Amazing, sweet card, whether it took you 10 minutes or 100!

Colleen Dietrich said...

Absolutely adorable! I love the feel of this, the way you placed everything, even the way you used an upside down mini tag for that masked bird. :)

Jill Norwood said...

So beautiful! I love the bird and the sweet paper! So cute that you posted your phone and the timer! Made me smile...I haven't tried this challenge yet but am hoping to!
