Visit to the Haberdashery Department

Thank you for all the wonderful cards you showed for last week's Text dare, as always it's amazing to see how mant different styles and ideas you come up with, we love to see them all. This week we'd like to welcome another Kiwi to the team - Donna has kindly agreed to be our Guest Designer for a couple of weeks, Welcome Donna, we hope you enjoy your time here and we look forward to seeing your work on here.

G'day all, Gillian here, and it's my turn to dare you all this week
Your card can be any theme you like, just as long as it's got something you'd find in a Haberdashery Department on it
Alright then, grab that old sewing basket of yours or raid your sewing machine drawer, have a look at what creative bits are hidding away there....maybe it's buttons, a zip, hook & eye's, ribbons, braids, Dressmaking patterns, tape measures,Pins & Needles, lace, safety pins or embroidery thread....
so many wonderful little treasures just waiting to be added to your next card :O)
I'm going to add one more rule....
Yes you may stitch on your card, but that can't be your only haberdashery item....

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!
