One for the TMCD

A couple of things before we get down to the business of newly made cards. First, this card, was chosen as a TMCD Favorite! Thanks so much Paulina and also to the DT! Ever since Paulina started the TMCD, I've loved it, and have tried to play when time and inspiration allowed. Next, this card, was chosen as one of the Top 3 Featured Members this past week over at the Muse challenge. Thanks to all who voted for this card. I'm truly honored that my fellow card makers liked this one. (insert huge smile here!) (Twice!)

And now to the card... I've already mentioned that I really enjoy playing at the 10 Minute Craft Dash. It's really fun for me, and getting something made in under a 10 minute time limit is right up my alley!  Paulina chose a trio of killer colors, and a ping went off right away. So I gathered up my supplies, and in 5:53 minutes this little beauty was done. (Hands Up) I CASEd my Muse card (see above), which was a CASE of Laurie's Muse card last week. (got that?!) First are the colors:

Nice, huh?! I know you can see why I had to play, and hmmmm....you should too! And here's what took me just under 6:00 to make:



Under 6:00 minutes, you ask...yep! Under the terms of the challenge, one can gather up supplies before beginning to craft, which is exactly what I did. Hit the scrap boxes (one is cs, the other is dp), and found the three scraps I needed. In my tackle box, I've got all my brads and eyelets, and knew I had a yellowy/goldie brad, so found that right away. Grabbed my LF stamps, and PTI ink, and off to the races it was. Put the flower together, trimmed all three scraps to size, tape-runnered onto base, stamped sentiment, pop dotted flower, and then at the last minute, added a bit of Wink of Stella to the red leaves of the flower. Hands Up, Done! And I'm finding I rather like this one. Hope your day is warm and wonderful. Happy dances everyone!

First of all a double dose of a large WOOO HOOO for snagging the TMCD Favorite title as well as a Top 3 honor at MUSE. I do have to apologize for not voting...it has been crazy here, especially with the 12 days of projects!

Now, about this speedy beauty you created...I'm finding that I rather LOVE this one! You must have been a blur but I would bet that you were in your glory, racing against the clock. What a rush!

These colors are gorgeous together! Of course, you had me at the polka dots. The Poinsettia...out-of-this-world beautiful - especially winking the way she is !

Yep...we're looking at another winner, winner here dear friend!

Congrats on all your card recognition so well deserved.
Love this 6 min. card! Don't you wish they could all be that fast. Love the way it turned out sure doesn't look like a six minute card.
Congrats again!

Ahh, my dear friend, I've fallen from the 'be prompt in commenting' tree (have a editing/proofreading task to complete), but here I am to add to the chorus of "LOVE this"! Fabulous card and under 6 minutes adds to the impressive factor! Echoing Geri - this one will stand as a proud winner next to the other well-deserved accolades that have come your way of late! Congrats to you!! Hugs ~
