Working 9-5....

We loved seeing all the cards you showed us for Tracie's "Starting from Scratch" dare - such a fantastic variety of cards, thank you to everyone who took part.



This week it's my turn (Jo) and I'm going to dare you to use bits and bobs from the office for your cards.

It's been a while since I had a 'real' job - other than being a Mum and of course playing with bits of paper...

Reminiscing... I would like you to make a card using some thing that you would normally find in an office environment. Such as... staples, paperclips, paper fasteners, file folders, library cards, hole punches, lined paper etc you get the drift.



Bety has joined us again this week as a Guest Designer and it is fabulous to have her with us.


Don't forget to leave us a comment with your blog link to show us your interpretation of the dare. If you haven't got a blog don't worry you can still join in, send a photo or scan of your card to the team at daringcardmakers@hotmail.co.uk and we will add it to our gallery and share the link right here on the blog.

Fantastic challenge and gorgeous cards from the team.
Mine took me a while to sort out as I could find any paper clips or anything remotely officey although there is some here here somewhere.
I'm hoping that I can scrape through with my effort on the Dymo tape and tag......lol!!!

Gorgeous work girls - I am definitely up to joining in - have missed my weekly fix of DCM! I will be back soon with a card! I have been wanting to use up all of those clips and file folders that were fashionable in scrapping a few years ago which I never got around to using! Leisa

Hello everyone - determined not to be late this week, so mine's on my blog now. Lovely efforts from the design team as usual.

If you get time, do please look at last week's effort too. I did upload it just in time - late Thursday evening, but it seems to have been missed off the list and I guess everyone was too busy doing this week's to go and look.
