Nine Minutes & Twenty-three Seconds!

CD_16I was inspired with entries I saw in Blogland for Paulina's Ten Minute Craft Dash challenge.  I participated in one previous challenge, but needed a better way to time myself.  Finally, it dawned on me that I could use the oven timer.  I planned out my card in much more detail than last time & it really made a difference.  The stamps are ODBD and the inks are Memento Cottage Ivy, Grape Jelly & Lilac Posies.  I like to cut my foam tape with scissors, but when I heard the 1 minute warning beep, figured I better just tear it.  Heart racing (does that make up for no aerobic exercise?!) but done with 37 seconds to spare!  My thought was to make this card work for 2 other challenges, as well--MUSE & ODBD. However, I wasn't completely satisfied with the card, so you'll have to check my next post to see the final version for the other 2 challenges.  Thank you for coming by--love hearing from you.
