LOVE & Challenges

14 February 2013

Hi, I hope your having a great Valentine's day.  I had some time while my toddler was having his nap today so I thought I would make a card and attempt the Pretty Pink Posh, 10 minute craft dash for the first time.  I am a VERY slow crafter so this was definitely going to be a challenge for me, but I made it!  Lucky my card is made up of a lot of die cuts!  My time was 9 minutes and 23 seconds,  I wanted to keep moving things about but with the time restraint it made me leave it alone :)  




I am also going to put this card in the 'Red' CASology Challenge and the CAS on Sunday Challenge 'Be my Valentine'.




Thanks for stopping by, and for those with partners I hope you have a nice romantic evening :)

    1. Thank you. I'm sure you could Sian, I thought the same but you just need to plan your card first which is not something I do normally. It was very nerve racking having to watch the time but in the end I really enjoyed it!
