Elephant Hugs

Did you all enjoy the snowy Monday yesterday?
I hope that if you had the day off, you found
a little time to get crafty! :)

I did.
In fact, I think I did the craziest crafty thing
I have ever attempted in my life.
That's right, I participated in the 10 Minute Craft Dash

That Paulina is one crazy chick, I'll tell ya!
And of course I mean crazy in the sweetest,
quirkiest, most super-fun way. ;)
I mean, you'd have to be crazy to invent a challenge
where you have to complete a card in less than 
10 minutes, right?
That's what I thought!

But then, I'm sort of a crazy chick myself.
And of course, I mean crazy in the sweetest,
quirkiest, most super-fun way.

Could this girl, who normally takes an hour or two
to finish ONE CARD, seriously complete one 
in under 10 minutes?

Here's the card I made:

As for whether or not I got it done in time,
well, all I can say is, watch and find out. ;)

By the way, I will also be sending out this card
to my friend Winter Sims, who is hosting the
Cards For the Heart Drive for the kids at St. Jude's.

AFTER I remove that button -- choking hazard! 
I forgot.
Please head over to her blog and check out the details
to participate in this very worthy cause.
And get your kids involved!

And if you participate in the 10 Minute Craft Dash,
let me know! 
I'd love to see what you made!

Thanks for stopping by!

    I just tried my 10 minute challenge. Uh... let's just say-- it ended up being 13:19. LOL.
    When i put the blog up... I'll let ya know so you can LAUGH.... (I took a photo of my desk-- HOT MESS!)

    1. Hey, 13:19 is still pretty good! I can't wait to see what you made! :o)

  6. Aww! That elephant image is so cute!

  7. Just too cute - love the way you made Washi grass! Thanks so much for sharing this with us at the Simon Says Stamp challenge!

  8. Super adorable, girlie!! And the best part.... it's a quickie. Lol...

  9. This turned out so cute and sweet. Thought about you the other day when I could have really used one of those pick up tools for adhesive instead of an eraser. I now have to get one after you recommended it in one of your crafty haul videos.

    1. Lol. Always happy to enable! It's called a Xyron adhesive eraser. :)

  10. This is adorable, great video :)

  11. Hi Christy
