Raid Your Wardrobe

Well you have all started the New Year magnificently. It is wonderful to see all your wonderful work. And before we show you what is up our sleeves (ha, ha) this week we have some Big News of our own!....


we have a new Design Team member. So a warm welcome to the wonderful, highly talented and just plain gorgeous Gillian Hamilton! It's a priviledge to have you on board Gillian.

This weeks dare is to look in your wardrobe for inspiration. It may be the pattern on a skirt, the style of a shirt, the pattern on a jumper or the fringe of a scarf. Your card could be clothing shaped! Just go with your creative flow.

Here we are modelling our creations... You will need to visit our blogs to see what the clothing inspiration was.

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.

Have just been for a tour of the design team cards and found you girls so inspiring! Will have a go at this one maybe on Sunday/Monday as hubby is taking me fishing tomorrow....

What a fabby challenge!! I've uploaded mine to my blog (www.sprogpaws.typepad.com) and may well have another go later in the week, as I have a top that's just begging to be 'lifted' if you know what I mean! ;oD

Gorgeous cards everyone!

Congrats Gillian!

I've been rather inspired by my lovely gold sequin bag and the spare sequins included with it. Also the GinX paper I used I hoarded for a while hoping I'd find a nice item of clothing to go with it... just for a good photo op! Never happened - nearest I got was a nice silk scarf.

Anyway, it's a very simple afair and up on my blog. :oD
