Our Mid Week Tribute !

Hello everyone !

Thank you once again for rising to the challenge so brilliantly and coming up with so many beautiful cards for the 'Me and My Shadow' dare. I was amazed at how many people took up the challenge and produced some absolutely gorgeous cards. Well done everyone !

Now, as you are probably aware, both Lynne and Gillian sadly stepped down from the Design team recently, and all though the DCM team's door is always open for them, we thought it would be nice to pay a little tribute to them in appreciation for all their wonderful work during their time on the DCM design team. Lythan came up with an idea that we make a card in the 'style' of either Lynne or Gillian's cards. Or maybe pick your favourite of theirs and use an element from their cards on your own card. Everyone has their own style- we thought it might be a little challenge to try out a different style for a change!

Once again we on the design team would like to wish Gillian and Lynne well on their new ventures and hope to maybe see them joining us for the occasional dare in the future, time permitting.

Now as always, you can share your designs 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.

Now here's a few from the design team to share with you from Rhi, Lythan, Keryn, Sue, Jo and Rachel...

hi,

just posted my card onto my blog - hopefully in the style of Lynne. This was really difficult to try and think what someone else would do but at the same time I've really enjoyed it. Good luck Gillian and Lynne for all your future things.
