All Checked Out

Well Hello !! Friday has come round again soooo fast ! Its my turn (Jane) to dare this week. Okay -are you ready ? For my dare you can choose any theme for the card BUT it must incorporate 'Checks', whether it be gingham paper or ribbon or squares, any thing really as long as it incorporates some kind of shape with 4 equal sides....... so go on- I dare you to think outside the square/step out of the box ..............easy as, eh ?!!

Thank you so much once again to everyone who joined in with Lynne's Pockets dare and the Little Extra- you all produced some absolutely gorgeous cards ! Well done. We are so looking forward to seeing what you put together for this dare.

Don’t forget to leave us a comment and your Blog link and we’ll come over to check out your creations. You can still join in the fun if you don’t have a Blog. Just send a pic/scan of your creation to the team at daringcardmakers@hotmail.co.uk and we’ll add it to our gallery for all to see.

Here's what the design team has come up with to give you a little inspiration.

I don't know how everyone gets their cards done and on here so quickly! I always seem to be near the end. Anyway, mine's up there now. Just to yet again repeat the obvious - the Design Team cards are brilliant as always. A real good variety this week.

Off to do a bit of blog surfing.

Wow! There are some amazing cards from the design team again this week. I don’t know how you all keep come up with these fantastic designs.

I’ve not had a chance to check out all of the other cards yet because there’s so many but the ones I’ve seen are terrific and I intend to spend some time tomorrow having a nosy at the rest.

I’ve just added mine to my blog
