Get someone else to make it!

Hello all, Jo here this week to dare you.... Thank you for joining last week's dare, it was fabulous to see bits being recycled and turned into card embellishments.

This week starts nice and easy...

Any card, any theme and any colour scheme of your choosing - but the catch... some one else must actually make and assemble the card for you... (with your supervision)!

Friends, relatives, or if there is no one close to hand, why not send instructions via email.

The Daring Cardmakers have had loads of fun getting someone else to make their cards for this dare. Have a good week and I can't wait to see what amazing cards you all come up with.

Jo (with the enlisted help of Jason)
Jozza (card assembled by 7yr old Abigail)Keryn (made by Cathryn)
Sue (BoJangles refused to help so Lythan assembled my card for me)
Lythan (who swapped with Sue)
Kathy (made by Lisa, following my written instructions)
Vanessa, put together by her DD
Rein (made by neighbour, aged 2yrs)

Hello ladies, I like your blog, hope you don't mind me contacting you all as a group like this – I'm looking for Easter cardmaking stories for Cardmaking & Papercraft magazines. We're looking for Easter themed reader stories to feature in Cardmaking & Papercraft magazine. Do you have a special reason to send a card at Easter (it doesn't necessarily have to be an Easter card). Or perhaps you work with disadvantaged children and you're involved in an Easter Parade, making cards and bonnets with them? If we feature your story you will win a craft prize worth £100 – please email katrielcostello@originpublishing.co.uk – I've love to hear from you.

May i say that Abigail has done a fantastic job and just ages 7 as well.

What a great challenge
I got my DH to make a card for his Mom's birthday.
He did a great job - sewing, inking, stamping. I even made a digital page of him doing it.
Great challenge
His card is on my blog

What a fab challenge girl as for many of us we don't have another card maker around to assist... and my nearest & dearest friends well one of them has a sick daughter at the moment so no chance there and the other well she has her own DT work on top of everything else...

Would you believe I somehow managed to convince my DH to help with this... he had to pick me up off the floor afterwards...

Anyway HERE is his creation....

Happy crafting
