10 Minute Craft Dash #2

hi everyone!

if you're here in the States, i hope you had a lovely Labor Day... I know that i did--full of fun times visiting with a college roommate and doing all sorts of tourist-y types of things!  i'll be posting pictures of those adventures later this week, so stay tuned.

BUT, today is all about the second 10 Minute Craft Dash!  Paulina and i are so excited about doing this another time--there were so many awesome entries for the first one, we can't wait to see what you do this time around!

so, here's the details if this is your first time with the challenge:

Challenge starts: TODAY, Wednesday, September 5th.  Use the colors above & post the time it took to create your project.  Don't forget to link up too!
Deadline: the challenge will run for 10 days, the deadline is September 15th, 11:59pm, PST. 

we have such an awesome sponsor and prize, so you're going to totally want to join in... and this time we're using certain colors to narrow down your 10 minute options.

honestly, i thought that having colors to incorporate was a blessing... made my decision making that much easier.  and when you only have 10 minutes to work, you have to make some decisions in a split-second!

so here's my card creation.  you might have seen a sneak peek at Paulina's blog, if so, i'm so glad you stopped by! 

time to create: 9 minutes 39 seconds

even though i think the colors limited my choices (a good thing!) i wish i had realized how hard "fussy" cutting the bike would be.  i have this awesome Schwinn cruiser that pretty much looks exactly like this Lawn Fawn stamp, and i love it... been biking a lot recently.  but when you only have so much time and you're going for two colors/ fussy cut images--EEK! :D

washi tape came to the rescue again, as well as a DeNami "love you" sentiment and some Studio Calico patterned paper.

i'd love to hear what you think, thanks for stopping by, xoxo
