Beady Eyed

WOW! We so enjoyed seeing all your cards for this weeks LE as well as your fantastic creations for Rhi's dare. Every week we are blown away by the amazing talent and creativity that we see.

Well this week is my dare (Saffa). Its quite a simple challenge really. All I ask is that you make use of beads on your cards. They can be seed beads, big chunky beads or little sequins, whatever takes your fancy.

We can't wait to see your designs....I hope you don't go all beady eyed by the end of the week!!

We have another new Guest Designer joining us for the next couple of weeks> We're
thrilled to announce that the immensely talented Sheila (manicstamper) has agreed to join in with our dares. Sheila is an inspirational stamper and regularly teaches and demonstrates cardmaking techniques - she's even appeared on TV - so it's a real honour to have her on the team.

Don't forget to leave us a comment with your blog link to show us your creations. If you haven't got a blog you can still join in by sending a pic of your card to the team at daringcardmakers@hotmail.co.uk We will add it to our gallery and share the link right here on the blog.

Here's the Design Team's Cards to get you inspired!
