Thinking of you - Ten Minute Craft Dash

Hello~

{WooHoo - So Honored that this was the Winner of the 10 Minute Craft Dash - Thank you ladies}

Sneaking this on quickly!

I took a break from doing various DT projects to participate in the 10 Minute Craft Dash, but I used my husband's computer to pull up the page today because it was handy and I forget how different the monitors are. So, I hope it's a pass that the blue is a deeper turquoise. :-)

This project was started with a Lunch Bag Kraft Cardbase. Taking a panel of Whisper White I stamped the peacock from WPlus9 Magical Moments and paired a sentiment from Mehndi Medallions.  The red paper is from my snippet pile using the Upper Crest Border.  A Ric Rac border was made from Lunch Bag Kraft Cardstock and added to the center of the red patterned paper. After last week, I didn't learn my lesson with twine and time. I wanted to add some twine, so a length of red baker's twine was added however it kept wanting to roll away and almost cost me my time!!! 
Total time for this slow stamper was 9 minutes and 36 seconds
Since I am the slooowwwest crafter ever...I have enjoyed this push to step out of my comfort zone and create differently and FASTER. I seriously start sweating at the 8 minute mark. (Thank you twine) 

If you have 10 minutes you should give it a try! Check out the deets here
 

Playing in the playground again at Pixie's! All snippets used here!  Moxie Fab World - Thinking of You Challenge

That's it for me tonight. I have a few more things to work on before I crawl into bed. Another long day tomorrow and that alarm will be going off before I know it.

Hi Tammy - sheesh, this is amaaaazing. Even with everything to hand, cut and all lined up I'd take way more than 10 minutes to make such a lovely card. It's great - and the peacock just off the page is a fabulous touch. Way to go taming that twine as well! Good to see you playing in the playground again.
