10 Minute Craft Dash

I am not sure if it is because I am having an awesome start to my week or because I am just tired and dopey today, but my ability to concentrate is pretty much non-existent.  I can't seem to do the simplest thing.  I am struggling writing this post...so bear with me... :)  If you want to know why my week has started so well, I will tell you...BUT you have to wait until after today's card.

So with out further ado, today's card is for 10 Minute Craft Dash #19 over at Pretty Pink Posh by Paulina.  That is a whole lotta P's people! :)  I love this challenge because honestly, I struggle to make a card in 10 minutes.  I seriously have to have all my wits about me, a design in mind and my supplies in order.  If you asked me to make one today...well fat chance that would happen!  Anyway, I love this color combo and thought it was perfect for the Home Sweet Home set from Lawn Fawn and these adorable bird houses.  I was also going to submit this for this weeks Lawnscaping Challenge for which the theme is coloring.  I did do some coloring here but not much so not sure it really qualifies.  I can decide later right?!  So here is my card made in 9 minutes and 22 seconds.  Just thinking about that time pressure makes me sweat. :)

My mind is rambling, so I better make this quick, but here is why my week is fabo so far: 1) I was "A Cut Above" at The Paper Players (see post below), 2) I was chosen as a random winner from last weeks Be Inspired Challenge over at TAWS and 3) I was "Pin Perfect" over at Pinspired Challenges from last week's challenge.  All big YAYs for me!

I have been working very hard at my card making and feel that my skills have grown leaps and bounds in the last 6 months to a year and these accomplishments supports that feeling! Now off to try to find a way to simply concentrate and get through the day! :)

Thank you for your visit!
