Meet me under the Mistletoe!

Happy Christmas Eve!

The presents are all under the tree and I am ready for the Christmas cheer to begin!

For my husband's pressie I have got him tickets to see a concert. Today I decided I would make him a Christmas card to put the tickets in. I was expecting to spend my time doing this but then he called to say he would be home early! I remembered the '10 min Craft Dash' at CAS-ual Fridays and decided to give it a go. This Christmas my favourite stamps have been the Merry-Kiss-Mas set from CAS-ual Friday store. I have found they have really suited my style. Therefore they seemed the best set to choose when making a card in 10 mins-something I don't think I have ever done!
I got my idea ready in my head, collected the supplies I needed and set my timer. Because I went with a red card I had to decorate the inside-oops! And  I did it......inside and out in 9 mins 49 seconds!!! I must challenge myself to this more often, it sure makes you focus!
This is a first for me. And all before hubby got home.
I have to say I am rather chuffed with myself!

Here is the front:

And the inside:

And CAS-ual Fridays are running this challenge alongside the Pretty Pink Posh 10 min Craft Dash. I will enter my super, quick card in both of these.

Have a Merry, Merry Christmas xx
