Are you ready for Dare 3?

Well, you certainly rose to the challenge this week, we loved seeing your cards for the "Use the Kitchen" Dare. Such a fantastic variety of ideas and inventive use of materials and kitchen equipment. Thank you to everyone who left us messages and joined in with the challenge, don't forget to check the links list for the blogs where you can see all the cards entered for the last couple of Dares. . Hopefully the kitchen will no longer be such a scary place for crafters to venture into:-)

This week - Kathy's Dare - A Stitch in Time....

I'd like you to continue in the Domestic Goddess vein and do some sewing. Your card this week needs to feature "real" sewing (none of that cheating by drawing crosses with a gel pen...). It can be by hand or machine but there must be some sort of sewing on there - I'd also like you to get your sewing box out and see what you can find to use on your cards; tapes, braids, buttons, zips, trims - anything goes.

Now TWO ways to show us your cards
1. leave a message on the blog and we'll come and look. We'll also add a link to the sidebar to make it easy for readers to visit your site and see what you've been up to.
2. We now have a gallery ready and waiting for non-blogger's cards. Just email your pictures to
daringcardmakers@hotmail.co.uk and as soon as they've been OK'd they'll appear on the gallery. Please remember to add your name, the dare your card is for and your website info if you have one. If you can tell us how you came across The Daring Cardmakers that would be great too.

So, are you ready to play? Got your needles at the ready? Here are some of our ideas to get you going, there are more to follow during the coming week, so don't forget to come back for another look. We'll all post the pics again on our own blogs, along with more information on how we made the cards and the stuff we've used, plus maybe some extra bits and bobs - so don't forget to check them all out.
