10 Minute Craft Dash Birthday Bash!

Hi all!
Today we're celebrating the first birthday of 10 Minute Craft Dash challenge!! I'm super excited of joining this blog hop with an amazing group of people and lots of inspiring (and quick!) birthday projects.

If you're coming from the blog of the super sweet Teri Anderson you're on the right place! If not, I know you won't miss this! Start on the Pretty Pink Posh blog for all the details and the full list of participants


The theme of the challenge is Birthday, of course! So I decided to make a birthday tag because what's a birthday without presents? And... You know every pretty present needs a tag ;)

I must confess that I had to make it twice because the first time it took me almost 15 mins to finish it! So I simplified it "a bit", no shading on the coloring, no background stamping, and so on.... well, at least I could finish it in time on my second try :)


I love the Lawn Fawn yeti from the set Yeti, Set, Go (that will be available on late August) used as little colorful monsters, are they cute or what??
If you have any question about how I made it, just ask in the comments or send me an email
I hope you like it! It took me 9:20 to finish it, phew!


After I finished the tag I wanted to make a card too. But this time I prefered not to look like a crazy girl while making it so I went for a simple, happy and easy desing and I had plenty of time to finish it


This one took me 07:44 and yes, it was a way more relaxed crafty time :)


Paulina has prepared a big celebration full of giveaways for random comments on the hop:


And a GREAT prize for this challenge's winner: A $50 gift certificate to Ellen Hutson's store plus an amazing prize pack:


I hope you feel inspired by all our creations and jump into your craft room to make something for the challenge!
