Where the Wild Things Are

Thank you all so much for joining in Jane's "Make and Send a Postcard" dare of last week. Hopefully all the UK darers who've been suffering from the Postal Workers strike action will have managed to get their cards sent in the gap before the next strike starts!

We have very much enjoyed seeing your cards for this dare and every single dare we've set over the last year. This is dare 52 and next week we will celebrate our first anniversary with a very special dare......
On to this week's challenge then


Hellooooo, Kathy here to set you a really Beastly dare this week! The theme is ANIMAL and you can use anything that's animal inspired - not those diddy little ones like bugs, birds and butterflies (though you can include them in your design of course) but what I'd really like to see is bigger, wilder, more fabulous or fantastic creatures So you could maybe use animal die cuts, animal prints on paper or fabric, or maybe animal words or phrases "grrrrr get down tiger"!!!! You could invent your own wild and wonderful beasties, or go back in time for dinosaurs, or into the world of mythology for all sorts of incredible creatures. How about a card in the shape of a tiger, elephant or monkey? Now, there's a challenge for you.... I'd love you to all go really wild over this one and have loads of beastly fun

Please come back and let us know when you've made your cards so that we can visit your blogs to see how your animal instincts got to work - and if you don't have a blog, - no problem, send your photos to daringcardmakers@hotmail.co.uk and they'll be popped onto our wonderful gallery for all to see.

Great fun cards from the DT, but what a stinker of a challenge - I don't normally do animals!!! However, a challenge is a challenge, and my effort is on my blog.

Since I'm such an animal lover this theme really thrilled me and so I made two cards. Here is my second card for this fun challenge that I call "Let Heaven and Nature Sing."
