10 Minute Craft Dash #17 - Mother's Day 2013 Card

I decided to give the 10 Minute Craft Dash on the Pretty Pink Posh blog a try since I was a big fan of the colors this time around.

My card, for Mother's Day this Sunday:

My time:

Ten minutes was definitely tough (and a bit stressful) and wouldn't have been possible without planning and getting supplies ready. I sketched out the card design beforehand and wrote down all the measurements so that I would know what pieces needed to be cut out. I also laid out all the stamps and ink that I planned to use so I could just grab and use them right away. I'm usually more of a perfectionist, but ten minutes doesn't give you any time to fuss. Maybe all my cards would go faster if I did as much pre-planning for them as I did for this card.

    1. Sounds like a plan for the next exchange!

      Yes, but it took more planning than I'm used to. I couldn't be all wishy-washy about what to use or what it would look like I normally do. :D

  5. I bet you spent more time planning than actually executing.
