Card under 15 minutes!

Have you ever timed yourself making a card? I found the funnest (is that a word?) challenge over at a new challenge blog called Friendship's Garden (love, love, love this blog--- more details on that coming next week!) The challenge was to make a card in 15 minutes of less and I thought, that's easy, I can do that, no problem!

Well, it wasn't as easy as I thought because I started my timer and before I knew it, it was already up to 8 minutes and I was just starting! I had to hurry! This was such a fun challenge and really stretched me. Here is my official timer (yah, I just barely made it!)


And here is my card:


This card is based on this sketch from Card Patterns:



Definitely check out Friendship's Garden and see if you can make a card in 15 minutes or less!

Hi Jamie! Thanks for joining us again! I love your enthusiasm so much! And your card is so pretty! Is that bingo paper from Authentique? If so, I have that same paper, but haven't used it yet! Thanks again and blessings, Becky
