i {heart} u!

Pin It

Ok, so a couple of weeks ago, I participated in my first 10 Minute Craft Dash over at Paulina's blog.  And I learned a few things:

  1. You gotta be organized.  I mean, seriously.  You gotta have your *schtuff* together!
  2. You gotta have a plan.  You gotta work your plan.
  3. There will be no need for cardio exercises after -- this will for sure get your blood a-pumpin'!
  4. You're gonna make a mess.  Deal with it!
But I had so much fun (there were a few things I would've changed about my card, but really, how particular can you be in 10 minutes?!?) and couldn't wait to do it again!  :)

So here is my latest Dash effort:

Well, that's everything I could accomplish in 9:36.8!  My rows are a little wonky and my hearts somewhat askew, but I just ask that you kindly keep in mind I only had 10 minutes!!  :)

{I swear, next time I'm gonna set a timer on how long it takes me to clean up after one of these -- now that'll tell the WHOLE story!}

There you have it…  Another Dash come and gone…  Hope you'll consider playing along -- who doesn't have 10 minutes they can spare???  ;)

Hope your week is off to a great start -- see you tomorrow night!  :)


  1. Wow girl, that is just flat out awesome! You rocked the 10 MCD!!!! Wonky, don't really see it, but that is what makes it special and handmade! This is so fun and cool!

  2. my brain completely freezes up when I even consider trying to actually make a decent card in 10 min!!! LOVE yours, the colors are so fun, love the washi behind. And I didn't notice anything off about your rows until you *made* me go back and stare for hours and hours ;)

  3. This is adorable & I can't believe you did it in under 10 minutes! I've only tried once & didn't have a timer, but now I realize I could use the one on my oven (but would have to run from the kitchen to my table--could be dangerous--LOL!) Anyway, this is terrific!

  4. You're too funny! I was breathing hard right along with you! You did pick a rather ambitious card for the 10MCD, Jennifer!! Your hearts don't look wonky to me - is that saying something about ME?! It's just adorable! I'm swooning over the plaid epoxy heart!!

  5. FAB card Jen - LOVING all your hearts! Totally agree with the "be organised" and "thank goodness the planning & tidying up time is not included" LOL!
    So glad you joined in the fun at the 10 Minute Craft Dash - hope to see you again soon :)

  6. I know what you mean about the adrenalin rush... a little scary at times! Your design is awesome--bet there was a lot of glue to clean off your fingers (21 hearts to stick in place!) as well as cleaning up the work area.

  7. Awesome card! Thanks for joining us at the 10 Minute Craft Dash!

  8. How fab is that!? There is absolutely no way I could contemplate spending only ten minutes on a card! I've seen the beautiful things that you guys turn out and I just know that I would embarrass myself if I tried! Ha ha! Maybe I'll give it a go one day, if I'm feeling brave...I can always choose not to enter/post it I suppose! ;)
