Charity Begins at Home

Hi all, Gillian here this week it's my turn to dare you all, but first I'd like to welcome our latest Guest Designer - we're so pleased to have another of our regular Darers join us for the next couple of weeks as GD - this time it's the fabby and very talented
Rachel Booth
who's coming to play with us!

OK, here's this weeks dare:
Let's go Charity shopping
or Op shopping (as we call it in Australia)

I DARE you to visit your local Charity Shop & make someone else's

TRASH your STASH!

.........and make a GORGEOUS card from what you find.
You'll be amazed at the special little treasures you'll find if you only take the time to look with CREATIVE EYES

As usual the DT have an amazing array of designs to get your creative juices flowing
and we are all looking forward to seeing what special treasures you not only find but how you use them on your Card

What a fun challenge ... my card background is the back of a Little Golden Book I picked up at the Goodwill store. It made the perfect birthday card for a two year old.
