10 Minute Craft Dash Birthday Bash (8-7)

CD_23Hi everyone!

Celebrating, playing along and blog hopping today with the good folks from the 10 Minute Craft Dash and friends.

If you have been hopping with the crew, you should have arrived here from the blog of the talented Thuy Bui. If you are new to the hop, welcome! 🙂

If you are new to the 10 minute craft dash, here’s the scoop on this fun little challenge. It’s a good one! You start by  pulling out whatever you want to use and then you get 10 minutes (just 10) to go to crazy town and make something crafty good!

So the challenge this time is a birthday theme Here’s what I came up with in 9 minutes and 10 seconds.


I sorta lived on the edge with that “Thinking of You”sentiment (from Simon Says Stamp!). But you do think of people on their birthday, right?

The funky frame of sorts was cut with a hexagons frame die from Simon Says Stamp! I just die-cut it twice, snipped off the edges and layered it together. It’s funky, but it works! 🙂


Alright, that’s all I have!

Next stop on the hop is the blog of sweet Cristina “Yainea” Nunez!  Take it away, Yainea!  (And if you get lost, just hit Pretty Pink Posh, which is also the home of the 10 Minute Craft Dash.)

By the way, be sure to comment as you hop! There will be some random prizes!


And be sure to take part in the challenge, too! There’s a “spiffy prize” up for grabs for one grand prize winner! (You can take part in the challenge by linking it up on Pretty Pink Posh.)
