Me and My Shadow !!

Hiya fellow darers, Jane here ! How are you all ? This weeks dare is a hard one !! Sorry everyone, but it had to be done !! :)

I want you to create not just one but TWO cards ! But wait........there's more ! I want both cards to contain the same embellishments and papers, ribbons etc- but arranged in a different way for a different occasion....the only thing being different is the wording....I'll let you have different wording ! (How nice of me eh?) I'm well aware this is a really hard challenge, and that I have thrown everyone into 2008 off the deep end....but go on- give it a go - I DARE YOU !

We're very happy to welcome Sue Hyde as our Guest Designer for the next couple of weeks, Sue's work is always beautiful and her attention to detail is second to none. We're delighted that Sue agreed to come on board and hope you'll enjoy seeing her work both here and on her blog

Now as always, you can share your beautiful cards with us in one of two ways, either leave a comment and include the link to your card /blog or drop us a line at daringcardmakers@hotmail.co.uk with your piccy and we will add it to our DCM gallery, for all to see. Now, we are making a few slight changes in 2008, we have some fresh and exciting new ideas coming through mainly to do with our Mid week dares. The main weekly dares will run the same as always, but from now on we may not neccessarily be asking you to make a card for the 'Little Extra something' which happens mid week. Some of the team are going to be doing tutorials, we might be setting up some double dares, and we will be introducing some undividual interviews on both the team and our contributors....so watch this space ! Now off you go and make a card (or two) - I can't wait to see what you all make of this challenging dare ! Good luck !.

you've set a hard one - but I have Tilda allready cut out twice in the same colour so all I need is to find the papers and twiddly bits!

Susan (Sue H) said...

Hi Guys i thought this was a great challenge, i'd made my cards by Tuesday and planned to put them on my blog Wednesday but we had a family emergency and my mind ended up else where.
Anyway i thought they'd turned out OK so i decided to post them even though the challenge was over....
