I can see clearly now.................

So so sorry for the delay.....you have no idea what has been going on behind the scenes here with our 'FRIEND' blogger...anyway..let's not dwell, we'll move on....

Once again, we have been amazed by how many of you have stepped up to the challenge and joined in with the dares. The response to Jo's dare entitled 9-5 was just fab...and then again with the Little Extra on Tuesday.....well what can we say ? 32 comments - just wonderful...thank you all. We love seeing all your creations.

As you know, Bety has been with us for the last couple of weeks as Guest Designer and has done a fantastic job. Many, many thanks Bety for your support and your beautiful work on the Daring Card Makers Design team....we've loved having you with us.

Which leads us on to our next Guest Designer- who we are very proud to announce will be with us for the next couple of weeks......and that lovely person is KIRSTY WISEMAN. So, please join us in offering Kirsty a huge welcome, we (the design team) are really looking forward to working with you over the next couple of weeks.

So, with out further ado, lets move on to today's dare. Its Kel's turn to set the dare.......are you ready ??

Kel says- Okay, this week I would like you to use some acetate, vellum, plasma or anything else remotely 'see-through' on your card. That's it!

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.

Esther - we're up to 43 now!. How does everyone find the time to look at all the others. I'm not I'm afraid - sorry ladies. I have taken a peek at about half of them, but if I left comments on them all, then I'd never get mine done. Some lovely interpretations out there.
