I've been AWOL. (absent without leave...military term. air force brat. sorry) There are just not enough hours in a day since I've been working extra hours at the museum. It's hard to work very part time, then go to full time days when you're not used to it. Two more weeks of crazy hours. And my weekends have been busy too. With another busy one coming up! All I've had time to do as far as blogging goes, is to sneak peeks at those I follow without leaving comments. So many pretty creations from you ladies out there, and I promise that I will get back on track soon. Just know that I'm impressed and inspired by what you've done.
I wanted to play with Paulina's 10 Minute Craft Dash. If you haven't tried it, you really should! It sounds alot harder than it really is. Get your creation "made" in your head, gather your supplies, and go like mad! Often, I do a test card. If it turns out well enough, I make sure my supplies are ready then I make a real card. Sometimes, it needs a little tweaking, so then it's another sample. Today's card needed a little tweaking. It was hard to line up the stamps, but once I practiced, and got in the groove, it went much faster. This took 9 minutes 46 seconds to make. Really. Head on over to the 10MCD and play. Since I was last month's winner, Paulina let me help choose the colors for the current Dash. I wanted pink and green for the coming spring, and gray for the January days we're in right now. You really need to go over and see what amazing creations have been posted, and all made in less than 10 minutes!
First I lined up my supplies. Cut and folded white SU card stock. Cut Bazzill pink card stock 3" by 51/2",
stamped with an SU stamp (Bliss) using Memento London fog then attached to base. Stamped "happy birthday" from PTI's Birthday Basics set in the same gray ink. Slipped a slide onto skinny white ribbon, then attached it to a wider piece of green SU ribbon, then stuck them to the card. That's it. It looks better IRL. Happy dances everyone.
