This is my second post today, so if you are popping in for the Simon Says Stamp STAMPtember® blog hop then please scroll down a little :)


Are you ready for some fun! While on our Clearly Besotted Stamps girls weekend we planned on taking part in today’s 10 minute Craft Dash challenge!  Stephanie Wincott, Aimes Wanford, myself and Craft Dash DT member Caryn Davies all packed around Stephanie’s dining room table with our supplies and 10 minutes of manic chaos ensued LOL. Caryn videoed the spectacle but unfortunately the camera cut off at 7 minutes something :( However, all 4 of us completed our cards in under 10 minutes even if Caryn had only seconds left to stamp her sentiment and really took it to the wire LOL.

I was quiet apprehensive about my ambitions for this challenge. For a previous challenge I’d just used stamping, then for another I’d mainly used simple die cutting. For this card though I wanted to stamp AND die cut! Also I planned to throw in threading twine through a button and tying a bow. Crazy LOL. :) I was so pleased to get everything done, even if my twine bow is totally bugging me as it runs vertically and I wanted it horizontal LOL. However using the new and totally gorgeous Autumn Flowers and Autumn Flowers dies make up for it :)

If you fancy seeing the cards we all made and the video then you must pop by Caryn’s blog for the full embarrassing details!
