It's a Girl Thing!

Hi everyone!

It's Nat here, ready to share my first ever dare with you!

But first, thanks to everyone who took part in Lynda's "Layer it Up" dare last week. :o) There were some truly fab cards and the winner of 3 of Teri's Delicious Doodles (chosen at random) is:-


Congratulations Sally - could you please e-mail Lynda (you can find her e-mail address in her profile on her blog here) and she will organise your prize for you.

For this week's dare, I'm taking inspiration from the Card a Day book by Papercrafts. It's amazing just how many National xyz Days there are out there, some I never knew existed, but with August just around the corner, there are two very worthy celebrations ahead!

August 1st marks Girlfriend's day - a day to celebrate that very special friend in your life, and Sister's day just happens to fall on August 2nd.

So the choice is yours, you can make a lovely card to give to your best friend, or send something to your sister - or maybe your best friend is like a sister to you, she could even actually be your sister! ;o)

Once you've made your card please add a link to it in your comment so we can all see what you've made!

Here's what the Design Team have made this week:
