We have our 'Beady' eyes on you!

Hi all, it’s Sue here and it’s my turn to set the dare for you this week but before I do I’d just like to thank everyone who took part in our ‘Animalia’ and mid week little extra this week. The team have had their ‘beady’ eyes on you all and have been checking out all the wonderful cards that you’ve made. If you haven't already taken a tour around the cards on the comments lists then can I suggest that you take a few minutes to check them all out because you really don't want to miss seeing them - they are fab.

Now, that fact that the team have had their ‘Beady’ eyes on you brings me nicely to my dare this week.

I’m sure that most of us girlies had a bead box when we were little and if you were like me, would spend hours sorting and swapping them with friends. Come to think of it, things haven’t changed that much because I still have a box of beads and I’m hoping that you do too.

For my dare this week I would like you to make a card that incorporates beads somewhere in the design…..it’s as easy as that!
It can be one bead, lots of beads, big beads, and small beads, whatever you like as long as there’s at least one on your card somewhere.

Don’t forget to leave us a comment and your Blog link and we’ll come over to check out your creations and even if you don’t have a blog, you can still join in the fun. Just send a picture or scan of your creation to daringcardmakers@hotmail.co.uk and we’ll add it to our gallery for all to see.
