10 Minute Craft Dash - Congrats

Hi, everyone! Hope you've been having a great week so far... I'm so excited to be participating in today's 10 Minute Craft Dash! Paulina is one of the sweetest blogger's around, and I was thrilled when I received her email inviting me to join in the newest challenge.

Today's challenge is featuring the color red.  Sounds easy enough, right?? :) Well, I am generally one of the slowest. crafters. ever.  LOL, it can take me over half an hour to make a very simple card.  I think part of my issue is that I don't really create with a sketch/layout in mind, then I hem and haw and second guess myself every step of the way.  Haha, it definitely makes the process go that much slower!

For today's card, I decided that organization was the name of the game.  In order to stand a chance of finishing my card within the 10 minute limit, I needed to go into it with most of the details already worked out (color scheme, general layout, etc.).  That made a huge difference! :) My card was completed in 9 minutes and 56 seconds! WOOT! And had I not decided to heat emboss my sentiment, it would've been done even sooner. :)

Thinking about playing along? All you need to do is create a card within 10 minutes featuring the color red, and post your results! :) For more information about the challenge and the fabulous prize pack up for grabs, please stop by Paulina's blog! :) 

Have a great one!
