10 Minute Craft Dash | Challenge #25

Hi guys!

Yesterday I had a chance to play along with this week's 10 Minute Craft Dash challenge. This challenge always stresses me out! But it's fun to create something in a short amount of time. I have had this great wood anchor in my stash for a couple of months and really wanted to use it on a card. I paired it with some paper from Glitz and a stamp from Waltzingmouse:


 (Supplies - Stamps: (Waltzingmouse) Ocean Bound. Ink: (PTI) Dark Chocolate. Wood shape: Glitz. Patterned Paper: Glitz. Cardstock: (PTI) Harvest Gold, Aqua Mist. Die: (PTI) First Place. Enamel Dots: My Mind's Eye. Twine: (PTI) Dark Chocolate.)

Total Time: 9:35.7. I did it! Under 10 minutes. I really saved myself a lot of time by choosing a patterned paper that is colorful, has a lot of details, and didn't require me to do anything except trim it down and adhere.

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend! Evan has his first soccer game of the fall season tomorrow... he is very excited. Unfortunately the uniforms are not ready so he will be in his practice jersey, but we will make it work. :)

Thanks for stopping by!
