Favourite Things

Hi there

we'd all like to welcome you to the very first dare of our 4th year here on The Daring Cardmakers. Before that though, we must say a h
uge "Thank You" to all who joined in with Lythan's fab "I Can See Clearly Now" challenge last week.
We saw so many wonderful cards and some very inspiring and inventive uses of acetate and other similar bits and pieces, so thanks again for playing along with us.

It's me (Kathy) here with a challenge this week and as we're still in celebratory mood I thought we should have as much fun as possible and make a card to share and show our most favourite crafting bits and pieces.

"These are a Few of My Favourite Things"

This is a chance to go mad with the papers, embellishm
ents, tools and styles you really love to use.
I'd like you to use at least 5 of your own personal favourite things on your card this week - if you can make it 10 then you can claim our DCM Gold Star - virtual, of course lol.

If you can't bear to give it away when it's full of all those treasured goodies, then make the card for yourself - you can always stick it up on your wall and enjoy seeing it every day!

That's it - any type of card, any occasion, any theme - just
enjoy using your favourite stash and have fun.
Don't forget to list those favourites you've used on your blogs and then leave a link so we can see your creations and compare our lists with yours.

Here's what the DT came up with when left to indulge themselves and wallow in their favourite things - head over to our personal blogs to find out more!

Happy Crafti
