Speed craft challenge #3

Hello everyone,

Welcome to another instalment of the madness called The Speed Craft Challenge,where we create a little something in 10 minutes or under. My teamies in this one are  IngridPamelliaKeren (  Nikki is taking a little break from this one but don't worry she'll be back). Please hop over to their blogs to see what wonders they have created.

The theme for this challenge was selected by Keren.....and she has made us suffer! Boy,was this one hard! This is the image we worked from 

See,hard huh?! What to choose? Colours? Shapes? Help?!

Well,I picked out the acorn shape and some of the colours so ran with that. Before I started I carved out an acorn shaped stamp as I don't seem to have one already, I quite like how it turned out,will maybe use that again!

supplies ready
ooohh just under the limit this time

I have some exciting news too, we are currently in the middle of creating a challenge blog for the Speed Craft Challenge. We will soon have badges to award for the winners and runners up etc. We would love to have you all pop over there and join up and participate,so we can see what you have all been creating in 10 minutes. It really is fun and can work as a great mojo kicker too. We will always have a theme to inspire you all too....what more could you ask :)
