We're Folding

Thank you so much for sharing all those fabulous cards you made for Jo's Tartan It Up! dare.
It was good to see you all rummaging through your crafty stash to find those little bits of tartan ribbon, paper, fabric etc to use on your cards. We know how hard it was!

We have lots of news to share before we announce this week's challenge so here goes.

Please welcome our brand new Guest Designer,
Janice, aka Serial Crafter. Janice is a long-time follower of the DCM and one of our most regular contributors so we were thrilled when she agreed to come on board for the month of October. We hope you'll enjoy seeing her lovely cards on here and that you'll be sure to visit her blog to see what else she's been up to.

Just as Rein is getting better after her fall, we have another casualty - we'd like you to join us in wishing our lovely Sue a very speedy recovery from the emergency eye surgery she had earlier this week. Poor Sue has to lie very still for at least a week while everything settles down, so we wish her well and we're sure you do too.

On a happier note we're absolutely delighted to announce that we have two new Teamies!
Lynda and Paula are both going to stay on as full-time DCM team members. We think you'll agree that they've both brought a "breath of fresh air" over the last few weeks with their innovation and often quirky styles. Right from the start (we're 3 years old this month btw) DCM has been all about having fun with card-making and hopefully we inspire other card-makers along the way, so we're sure Paula and Lynda will be helping us to continue our tradition of no-pressure, fun card-making into another year. And Finally we get to this weeks challenge!

Folding Up

It's "just what it says on the tin", we'd like to see some folds on your cards this week.
Fold the whole card, fold some paper, fold some ribbon.
Do some origami, teabag folding or just fold over a corner of your paper to reveal the other side.
As long as there's some sort of folding used as a feature of your card then it counts. Any subject, any theme, any reason.

Please come and let us know where we can see the cards you make, we do love visiting your blogs.

Here's what the DT have come up with this week to help get you started
