Lacy Days of Summer


Thanks to all those brave souls who rose to the challenge and entered a card for our "Flip-Flop, or Swing" dare last week.
What a fab array of cards, we loved seeing them and we hope you enjoyed trying something a little different as much as we did.

This week it's me, Kathy, here to set the dare and I think you'll find it a little easier than that one was - though of course if you're still in the "Swing" of swing and flip cards you could always make another one and incorporate this new challenge into it!

My challenge consists of just one word really and that word is;
LACE

You're free to interpret "Lace" in whatever way you like; you could use the actual word on your card, stamp or cut a lacy design or maybe use one of these dictionary definitions to inspire you:
1. a net-like ornamental fabric made of threads by hand or machine.
2. a cord or string for holding or drawing together, as when passed through holes in opposite edges.
3. ornamental cord or braid, esp. of gold or silver, used to decorate uniforms, hats, etc.
4. a small amount of alcoholic liquor or other substance added to food or drink.

Please come back and let us know where we can see your cards as we love to see your creations, and please don't forget to give The Daring Cardmakers a mention on you blog!
Here's what the Design Team have been making this week
