10 in 30 Around the World on Wednesday

10 in 30 Around the World on Wednesday

Blackberry Beauty Ephemera Pack is the main focus of this set of 10 cards created for Around the World on Wednesday blog hop.

Welcome once again to Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop, travelling around the world through every time zone.

This month, my blog post for this hop is a shambles. Angie threw down the challenge to create 10 cards in 30 minutes. WHAAAAT!!!! I knew right from the outset that I would fail miserably at this …. and I did.

I really did try, but 10 cards in 30 minutes is a bit of a stretch for my creative exercise. It took me quite a few hours to design the cards and cut all the pieces (somewhere around 4 hours … lol).

It’s a bit like a recipe which says “10 minutes cooking time”, but fails to mention the 2 hours required to chop and measure all the ingredients! 😉

So creating my cards had all my ingredients chopped and prepped and sitting in little bowls, waiting to be miraculously assembled.

I rose to the challenge and video’d the creation my 10 cards …. but alas …. I went way over time. Cue the failure buzzing noise!! Instead of 3 minutes a card, I took just over 5 minutes per card. Now if you have seen me create in my facebook lives, you know how miraculous that actually is!

Here are all the cards created in order ….

  • Oh Cheryll! You are a complete marvel! LOVE, LOVE your cards. I couldn’t cope with the time limit either – I did it but only through dumb luck!

    • Hey JoAnn, thank you! I didn’t really make it in the 30 minute time frame! It took me 50 minutes in the end, plus all the designing and cutting time. So let’s just say …. 10 cards in a long time! ;-). But for me, it is probably the quickest I have ever put together 10 cards!! xxx

    • lol … I misunderstood the brief! I thought the challenge was to do 10 slightly different cards … so I don’t feel quite so bad about not making it in 30 minutes now Aurélie!! 😉 xxx
