Welcome to The Daring Cardmakers.
We are a team of card-makers from the UK and mainland Europe, who'll try to inspire and encourage you to make some wonderful cards.
Every Friday at about 10am UK time, one of our design team will post a new dare/challenge, along with our creations to get you inspired.
So go on, give it a try - we dare you!
Leave us a comment with a link to your card so that we can view your lovely creations too!

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.
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)

Yes, we know we've done similar challenges in the past, but some things are good to revisit and this is one of them - it gets us looking at stuff we might be throwing away and asking ourselves if there's some card-making mileage to be had from it.
And besides, it's FREE! If you can use something rescued from Christmas rubbish (scraps from cards, decorations etc) - then you get double points! lol

We bet you're now ready to put away all that Christmas stash, at least for a while - but there's something which must be done before the present-giving season fades into memory, and that of course, is to say Thank You properly for all those gifts we so enjoyed opening.
So this week's Daring Cardmakers task is to get those Thank You cards made and sent - see how we like to help you get things done (hehe)?
Anything goes this week as long as that all-important Thank You" message is there.
Don't forget to come back and tell us where we can see your "Thank You" cards - we love to see what you've made and it's always inspiring to see how everyone responds to the challenges.
Here are some cards from the Team - and btw, we'd all like to say a great big THANK YOU to every single one of you for visiting the blog and joining in with the dares during 2008.
We'd also like to wish you a very happy, healthy and craft-filled New Year!
