Sponsored dare - Sparkle and Bling

Wow it's Friday again and we can't quite believe that it's November! Just where has this year gone? Before we get going with the new dare we would like to introduce you to our guest designer for November - the fabulous Ruth (Tip Top). We were thrilled when Ruth accepted the invitation to join us this month. Do make sure you check out her blog it is well worth a visit!

This week its Jozza's turn for the Dare and as its Fireworks week here in the UK she has gone all sparkly - so the brief was lots of bling!! We are sponsored this week by Louise Brigden (the designer of Dottie and George plus a whole host of other fabulous images) and Charmed cards and Crafts (the shop who sell the downloadable images).

Louise was kind enough to supply us all with a selection of Dottie and George images and it's fair to say that we are in love! As it is a sponsored dare this week, we will choose a random winner who will win 2 download collections of their choice or the Dottie and George Christmas download. In addition to this fabulous prize, Karen who owns Charmed Cards and Crafts is going to put together a little something extra from her shop making it 2 prizes up for offer this week so it is going to be well worth taking us up on the dare to be in with a chance to win! The download can be won by anyone worldwide, but sadly the extra prize can only be posted to within Europe as Karen doesn't ship worldwide. We think you should make your card just for us this time - so please, no combined challenges for our prize dare.

SO have a go and see what you can come up with with some sparkle and bling and leave us a link for a chance to win some fabulous goodies. Here's what the design team made...

Catherine said...

Can anyone join the dare?
Are there any rules, Sorry I'm new to this

Susan (Sue H) said...

Hi Catherine,

Yes, anyone can join in with the dares.

We set a dare every Friday and sometimes there’s a Little Extra on Tuesdays, so just visit our blog to see what our theme is. There aren’t any rules as such but if there is anything specific for that week all the information will be in our dare post, like this week…….if you want to be in with a chance of winning the prize draw this week your card has to made the Daring Cardmakers only and not linked to any other challenge blog.
When you’ve made your card, pop it on your blog and then come and leave us a message here, with a link so we can come and see your creation.

Apart from that, all we ask is that you have fun.

Hope that helps.
Sue
