Bling and Beads

This week's challenge is set by Lynda and I want you use... Bling and Beads. You can use micro beads or threading beads. Any sort of bling: glitter, sequins, crystals brads etc. Have fun!!!The Design Team have again worked really hard this week and have produced beautiful, creative and sometimes amusing work!

For anyone who hasn't joined in before, there are two ways to show us your creations:

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 also 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.

Here is my first effort for 2007.
I can't believe how tired I am after my first week at work & thought I'd start off simple.
I have missed these challenges.

Great dare! I even managed to use some of my first scrapping stash - those wonderful Embelleez beadz! I just love a bit-a bling. :oD

Anyway I've just finished off mine and uploaded it to the blog with a close-up as I suspect the scanner was a bit overwhelmed by all the dazzle thrown at it since the scan is a bit bad! hehe

Hi Girls,
I've just done a card that might just come under your bling dare. It's inspired by one of Keryn's techniques.
It's on http://muffwaisstuff.blogspot.com

Susan said...

Hi all and it's so nice to see some new people joining in for the DCM dares! Welcome from me :-D

I have only been doing the dares for a little while too - it is fun and all of the ladies here are so kind, encouraging and inspiring! I just finished my beady bling card for this week's dare if you want to have a look....

Kathy said...

Moving to "new" blogger seems to have lost some of the names on the comments. If you've joined in with this dare and your link isn't on the links list please let us know so we can sort it out
