Welcome to the Birthday Party! My friend, Paulina, over at the 10 Minute Craft Dash invited me to participate in this blog hop to celebrate the first birthday for her challenge. I hopped on it (pun intended!) and said yes in a hot minute! What an honor!
If you are hopping along with the blog hop celebration, you arrived here from Laura Bassen.
If you are not familiar with the 10 Minute Craft Dash, it is an every other week challenge hosted by Paulina. The kicker is that you only have TEN minutes to make the card!
You heard me right. 10. Minutes.
I knew that I wanted to make a video for this occasion. I didn’t realize at first what that really meant. I don’t usually create with a time limit! I laughed at myself the whole way while breathing hard and breaking out in a full on sweat! View the video and maybe you’ll laugh, too!
7:28 – I did it!
Yep, I hit a couple snafus while filming. Now, by looking at the photo and the card in the video, can you guess what other snafu I ran into?
When it came time to photograph the card, I COULDN’T FIND IT!
I recently cleaned some stuff out of my room and shuffled things around to make way for this beauty here and in the process lost the card. oh em geeee!
sooo….I remade the card…this time it took me less than five minutes! I decided to place the masks on more of an angle and have it bigger on the bottom than the top. I encourage you to try your hand at this sponged masking technique. It’s fun. It’s quick. and boy, what an impact!
I hope you all enjoy this birthday card and are inspired to join in the challenge as well.
Let’s look at some of the deets of this Birthday Celebration!
