Use some ribbon for the men in your life

Well what a fantastic selection of cards for Tracie's language card challenge. We really do enjoy seeing all your creations so please keep them coming

This week is Debbie's dare and it is called

Use some ribbon for the men in your life

It isn't as scary as it sounds though :-) Lots of us cardmakers struggle a little bit with men's cards so the dare is to make a card for a man - any theme or technique - but the design must include at least one piece of ribbon. You can use as much or as little ribbon on your card as you like - even just a little ribbon tab counts and you can use ric rac too.

There that's not too bad, is it!!

Now there are 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.

We can't wait to see all your creations - have fun everyone.

Here are the team's cards

FAmazing cards, ladies! So many clever ideas fro using ribbon on a man's card!! The tie one really struck me - love it :-) Thanks also for the invitation to join you. I have made a couple of cards for men lately - does twine count as ribbon?? If so, here is the link to my blog. Scroll down to the turtle card.
