Here we go - DARE 2 !

Well, we had a wonderful 1st week, we really enjoyed your beautiful cards, well done everyone !Thank you so much for all your support and encouragement- we really do appreciate it. This week’s dare was set by Jane and is entitled 'USE THE KITCHEN’.

Basically, you can have ANY theme- but the card must have either an item from your kitchen featured on it or would have used something in the kitchen to make it (oven, iron etc)! Bit tricky eh ? Well it wouldn't be a challenge if it was easy now, would it! The design team has come up trumps with some truly wonderful cards once again. We hope they will inspire and encourage you to join in on dare No. 2 The team have all put details of what they have used, techniques and so on, on their individual blogs, so don't forget to check their blogs to find out all the trade secrets ! lol !

Good luck ! Here's our efforts, after a lot of mess making and trial and error apparently!


Lynda's card



Jo's cards, using, coffee label and bean , and tap washer on second card !






Keryn's serviette card



Deb's cards, using Bird seed and cup cake holders



Bondgirl's card. Using wax candle and food colouring, cereal box and cake deco.



Lythan's teabag and food colouring cards

Right well my first attempt is on the blog - not totally happy with it - but I like the idea - Im sure you girls could do something great with it!. BTW Charlotte age 5 thinks Im mad going around the kitchen looking for things, and kept asking "mummy what are you looking for exactly" hehe. Thanks girls I have a pile of stuff I intend to try out! xx

I have finally done it - the card looks much better 'in the flesh' than the piccie, but atleast 'I've done it!' Looking forward to the next challenge now.

Jane said...

Hiya Ann ! just wondering what your blog address is ? it isn't showing on your profile ? I'd love to see your card ?

Debbie said...

Ann - I have tried to look at your card on your blog but the link on your name takes me to your profile but then I can't get into your blog :-(

I would love to see your card :-)
