Ok, this card is for both Unity's Friends with Flair blog hop and the new 10-minute Craft Dash.

I stamped the boots from Unity's Brave Girl Boots and created the sentiment from Carnivale Alpha.
 Instead of tying a ribbon bow I wound some natural twine around to mimic a rope.

Now, the whole premise of the Craft Dash is that you get the entire project done in 10 minutes! You can collect your supplies beforehand but then you only get 10 minutes. I made mine in 8:52.

Well, when it came time to glue the twine I could not find my liquid glues! Not my Zip Dry nor my Tombow. Ugh. So I used Crystal Effects. Which would have been fine except that it has a tendancy to spread. And to be glossy. Hence that be gloopy mess under my rope. I will probably take it apart and remake it now : (  So this is the mess I'm capable of making in under 9 minutes. It would probably help if I cleaned my desk once in a while.

But on the bright side - I love those teal boots!

Thanks for stopping by!
