10 Minute Craft Dash!

I feel like I just ran a marathon! LOL! I played along in the new challenge: 10 Minute Craft Dash!

The challenge is to come up with a craft project- start to finish- in under 10 minutes. I have to admit, my first attempt turned into an hour long craft session.... lol! I saw my stopwatch hit 10:00 and I looked down to see a bunch of parts and NO card. I tried to color... just sayin'. Probably not the smartest concept in under 10 minutes! LOL!
Here's my second attempt- much less complicated! HAHA!

I kept it very clean and simple this time and turned to my background stamps for some help in the time area! I stamped the new ABC Background in a muse Navy ink onto white cardstock and inked up the edges to give it more of a distressed look. I matted that with Smokey Shadow cardstock and stuck it to the card base. Didn't take more than 5 minutes! Woohoo! Haha!
Then, I pulled out the My Thoughts Exactly set for a quick focal point- the bubble and "Thanks!" sentiment are stamped in a muse Slate ink and the sentiment "you're the best!" (from Teacher Notes) is stamped in Ranger Archival Jet Black ink. I adhered the bubble with foam tape and called the card DONE!
Total time- 9:47! I did it!
The 10 Minute Craft Dash challenge is super fun- I hope you'll run over and check it out!
