i love you

Have you tried the 10 Minute Craft Dash Challenge?  

I think I'm hooked!
Plus, the new challenge consists of a fun color combo which was hard to resist.  As Paulina said so herself, "...a fresh color palette that can be used for all sorts of occasions."

The current sketch over at Retro Sketches looked really fun.  So, I decided to combine the challenges.  I don't know about you, but I haven't made a square card in forever!

With sketch and design in mind, I gathered up some supplies & tools, hit start on the good ol' iphone stopwatch, and proceeded to make my card.


With this card, I really tried hard to go at a normal pace instead of the insane speed I used the first time I tried this timed challenge.  However, when those minutes started accumulating, my pace certainly began to pick up as well.  (haha!) 

Plus, I thought I'd use my foam dots instead of cutting foam pieces from a roll to save time... Not so much.  I found that I have a harder time getting the backs off of the dots.
Oh well.  I learn something new with every challenge.

Thanks for stopping by!
