10 Minute Craft Dash #9


I’m so excited about today’s challenge! Remember how I said I wanted to make December super fun for the Craft Dash? I put together an ultra talented group of designers in the last challenge and for this one I’m “teaming-up” with my friends over at the CAS-ual Fridays challenge!  Both of our challenges feature a holiday theme, so one of your handmade creations can fit into TWO challenges. What’s even better, you could potentially win two separate prizes!

NOTE: their challenge starts at noon– only a couple hours away, but I wanted to be sure to mention that. :)


Just like the last 10 Minute Craft Dash challenge, there isn’t a specific color palette. The requirements? Create some sort of holiday goodness, stay within the 10 minute time limit* and post your time in your post.
* If you aren’t able to stay within the 10 minutes, you can still link up your item! While it won’t quality for the winners spot, it might still be featured in the favorites!

Now onto the fun prize! Michele over at CAS-ual Fridays recently started her very own stamp company called CAS-ual Fridays Stamps. Here’s a little background on her new endeavor:

“Founded in 2012, we are a small company with big ideas located in beautiful Colorado.

CAS-ual Fridays Stamps are made of the finest clear photopolymer available, and proudly made in the Heartland of America.  Our stamps are created with Clean and Simple designing in mind, however, whether you are a CAS enthusiast, or lover of all things layer-licious, you will have a blast getting inky with them!”

    This is my first attempt at the 10 minute craft dash and I was surprised at how quickly my tag came together. Using washi tape and self adhesive rhinestones helped!
    Love your adorable holly jolly card!
