Almost Dashed...

I thought I'd set myself a somewhat less ambitious card for this fortnights 10 Minute Craft Dash, so as the timer started I was much more relaxed - BIG mistake, as "Dash" and "Relax" are two words that should not share the same craft space LOL!

I had rather leisurely scored my cardstock base, and trimmed my checked Pink Paisley paper and kraft cardstock to size, adhered my checks to the cardstock base and nicely rounded the corners, fetched some washi tape to hold my MFT heart die and branch dies and WPlus9 bird die in place as I cut them, laid out my ready to be assembled card on the table then looked at my stopwatch in horror, just under three minutes to go!

I really pushed this one to the wire, as I umed and ahed about whether I had time to stamp my sentiment, and it did not stamp as crisply as I would have liked, I grabbed my brown marker and handwrote over "some" to try and rescue my stamping efforts - and JUST scrapped in at 9 minutes 58 seconds!  Next time I know not to relax til AFTER my card is created LOL.

FAB prize for this fortnights 10 Minute Craft Dash is:



  1. aww this is cute.. love those birds..

  2. Love the way the patterned paper is peeking it!!

  3. Such a beautiful card!
    And your describing of the crafting process just made me laugh - thank you so much!

  4. Well for 9 minutes and 58 seconds you sure did an awesome job Lyndal! haha! This is super cute! Looks like it took hours! It probably would have if I had made it!

  5. I refuse to do the dash challenge because I can't come up with an idea this cute in 10 minutes - let alone get it made!

  6. Wow...under 10 minutes! Congrats...awesome card! I would NEVER have been able to do all that you've done...for some reason, when the time is ticking I feel like I'm in s-l-o-w---m-o-t-i-o-n...LOL

  7. So cute. Great job on the under 10 minutes. Thank you for playing along with the Addicted to CAS wings challenge.
