Another thank you goes out to Suzanne over at the cardyard. Many of us played along with her Ugly Card fun on April Fools Day, remember? We uploaded our cards and laughed all day! It was just a hoot. She also, without telling us beforehand, put together a prize package that went to one random winner. Wasn't that sweet?! I was so surprised when my number came up, and even more surprised when the package arrived. Chock a block full of enough goodies to make my head spin. So thank you Suzanne.
Before I started blogging, I was numbered among those who thought it was weird to hear people refer to their "blog friends". They (the people in the blogosphere) weren't real to me, and I didn't understand all the fuss. Then I started blogging, and found it to be a very real place full of wonderful, kind, and special friends. So a big thank you goes out to all of you in blogland for making this a great place to spend time in. Glad I'm getting to know you.
Today I saw Paulina's colors for the super fast, super fun 10 Minute Craft Dash, and a bit later I saw the sketch over at CAS(E) this Sketch. I wondered if I could play at both challenges with one card. Yep. Totally possible. Here are the colors and the sketch:
Whenever I play at the 10MCD, I think awhile first. Then I go gather my colors; in papers, in embellishments, in washi, in buttons, in ribbons...you get the idea. At first I tried making a flower intending to use a big bling or brad for its center. That thing hit the recycle bin really fast. Bleccchhhh! Once I concentrated more on the sketch, having gotten my supplies piled high, it was a bit easier. Except for the smaller focal point of the sketch. Then, ping!!!! Could you hear the reverberations? I laid out my supplies in logical order and did a dry run. Bam. Set the timer and did it for real. Took me 8 minutes 13 seconds. Dang, how easy was that?! You should try these together, way fun.
White Bazzill card base, a scrap of coralish, a polka dot scrap, and two pieces of kraft. One for the circle which is stamped with the Avery Elle Bright Days sunburst, and the other is beneath the polka dotted strip. I punched out the sunburst smaller than it really is, and mounted a layered brad from MME on top of it, added one section of some random lace and adhered it to the panel. A PTI sentiment from Birthday Bash with SU ink, and that's it. Sooo fast. Soooo fun. You try it now. Happy dances everyone.
