The Speed Craft Challenge

Hi everyone,

Today,in conjunction with these wonderful ladies: IngridPamelliaNikkiKeren,I am doing a speed craft challenge.Basically,seeing how far I can get in 10 minutes! Please pop along to the other luscious blogs to see how they all got on....probably far better then me :))

These ladies are not only uber talented but lovely to know also,thank you all for being you! A special thanks to mega talented Pamellia who designed our new logo,gorgeous isn't it.

We were allowed to gather all our supplies together first then hit the I used my beloved IPod. Now what to do....a tag or a card? Fresco paints or distress inks or sprays? Headache? Yes? Would I do it again.........YES!

Of course I couldn't take pictures as I went along for obvious reasons but my cat can vouch for the fact it was done today in 10 bribery of  fishy treats were offered to her......honest......

Its amazing how much your heart starts beating when you are under pressure....and how much aggravation you get! Like a numpty I decided to do this now.....I have included a pic of my cat because she was a complete pain this morning resulting in me giving her a sponge brush to quieten her down so I could get crafting! Considering it all, I am pleased with the outcome.

Well here it is.....TA DA






Whew,seriously worn out now but all good fun. Its amazing what you achieve in that time though and cuts out all the dithering too!

Hope you like it and what my lovely blog buddies have produced for you all too :)

  8. This is brilliant Donna, and in under 7 minutes, it takes me that long to clear a space on my table before I start. I love how you've used the paint strokes, perfect for your chosen stamps. Obviously it was 7 minutes spent that you should have been petting your cat - you can see that by the look on her face lol. Fabulous card! xx
