Who's pushing your buttons!

Hi its Keryn here and it's my turn to set the dare this week. But before I do that thanks so much for the fabulous cards you've made for Jo's Frilly Dare and the Dots and Dashes little extra. We really enjoy looking at your cards.

I know you've all got buttons stashed away somewhere, whether they've been purchased at a cardmaking store or you thriftily snipped them off DH's old shirt. I'd like you to find those buttons and use them somewhere on a card. They can be real buttons, craft shop buttons, die cut buttons, faux buttons or another type of button, surprise us all.

We're very happy to have not only the usual NZ, Aussie and UK contingent this week, but also cards from Germany - from our latest, very talented Guest Designer, Rein, and from Sylvie who's kindly stayed on for another week and adds a French flavour to the blog.

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.

And now here are the cards from the team:
Keryn
Lynne
Rein
Kathy
Sylvie
Jane
