Hey, y’all!  Welcome to the 10 Minute Craft Dash Birthday Bash! No doubt you’ve arrived via  Andrea Garland’s delightful blog–YAY!!!

I’m excited to be playing with so many of my crafty friends and haven’t the creations been totally fabby so far? WOOT!

Be prepared to git yo’ par-taaaay on and leave a comment at this and all the other blogs along the hop! Here’s why:



And, if you play in the coordinating challenge, looky here:





Now, on to the rest of my post:

Our mission was to create something with a birthday theme, and with only 10 minutes, I opted for an OLC (one-layer-card), of course! :)




True to the theme, I went with cake… :)

WARNING: Mini hi-jack ahead >>>  If you haven’t seen Jim Gaffigan’s take on cake, you just GOTTA. It is hysterical!!!

Hi-jack over!

So, I know it’s supposed to be created within 10 minutes, BUT, I didn’t make it.  I thought I could. I thought I would.


But, the card’s a win. And, I likey! ;)

Stamped the cake onto my fav-o-rite paper for stampin’ and watercolorin’, then trimmed it out and mounted it with foam dots to a simple white card base.  I die cut the candle and then stamped and water-colored it, as well. Hand-wrote the sentiment… And, I’m bettin’ if I hadn’t gone the extra mile with the Glossy Accents on the frosting, and Stickles, of course, I actually might have finished within 10 minutes… But I knew it would look so cool and couldn’t seem to sit on my hands this time around. Oy.

Next stop on the hop is the sweet and extremely talented:

Enjoy the hop!

  2. such a sweet design! i love the watery colors…perfection!

  3. Love the card. Very sweet (pardon the pun). Loved the sentiment and went hunting for the stamp. Then I came back here and read your post properly and realised you hand-wrote it! LOL! Too busy gobbling the eye candy (more pun pardons) to read the post carefully. Thanks!

  4. Adorable card!
