Ready, set, GO!

In taking a little time to blog surf this morning, which is a rarity for me, I came across a fun new challenge blog. 

So how fun is THAT??? Yep, the challenge is to make a card in 10 minutes or less....Actually that is not an easy task. My card came in, in just under 10 minutes. 9:56 to be exact. Just under the wire. Hmph, I didn't have time to add any extra doodads or glitter, but I like the way it turned out.

Now the truth be known...... did I actually spend just 10 minutes on this card



It took me 9:56 to create the card


the rules say:

You can gather your supplies first.


SO I had an idea


it took me 20 minutes to clear my desk

10 minutes to gather my supplies

and then I got a great brainwave......can you visualize the steam emitting from my ears? Yep, a GREAT idea. I KNEW I had some Designer Paper that would match the colours in the challenge. Found the pad rather quickly, flipped through and YES, it was a perfect match. Got SO excited about that, I spilled an entire bottle of my fave Bevvie.......(NO, I wasn't drinking beer THIS early). Diet Pepsi, sweet nectar of the morning! Ha! Sooooo, it was ALL over my computer desk....the flood quickly moving towards all the good things I have on the desk: My card reader, Kobo, Memory Cards, Sticks etc....and WAY worse than that, my Touch Twin Colour Chart, that I so painstakingly made after losing the first one.....hmph, I guess the third time is a charm.

So, after taking care of that sticky old mess (well actually I piled and dried stuff, but I still have some work to do here!) I sat down to create my card. Fun Stuff, Fun Challenge. I think you should check it out!!! Word of Caution: Start with a tidy craft area
