A Sunflower Bouquet

Before we announce this week's new dare, we'd first like to thank you all for sharing your fabulous "Inchies" with us. It was astonishing to see just how many ways there are to use those tiny squares on our cards - gave us all something to think about!
This week we'd like to introduce our newest Guest Designer, Lynda to you.
Lynda is a regular Darer and her cards are fantastic so we're thrilled that she's agreed to join us for a while and it made our day when she said: "DCM was the first challenge I ever entered and you all gave me the confidence to do a little more."
Welcome to the Team, Lynda!


We're very happy to say that we still have Paula with us too - you can't have too much of a good thing and we're sure you're going to enjoy seeing more of her gorgeous cards on here.

So, this week it's Rein's turn to set the dare and the theme is simple and straightforward;

SUNFLOWERS


We love their happy, sunny appearance, somehow seeing them never fails to cheer, does it?
So we'd like to see lots and lots of glorious, cheerful sunflowers on your cards.
Poor Rein has had a nasty fall and is very sore and bruised, so hopefully a great big bouquet of sunflowers will cheer her up and bring a smile back to her face.

Here's what the design team have made this week to try and inspire you to feature sunflowers on your work this week Please join in, and once you've made your card, come back and let us know where we can see it.

Have fun
