Snowdrops and Carnations.....

Happy New Year!

It seems such a long time since we celebrated Christmas "Down-Under" style with Keryn's beach themed challenge, but a big thank you to all of you who threw off the Winter chill and enjoyed some fun in the sun with us. It was great to see your cards.

So, on to a whole new year of DCM dares, we're hope you're ready and raring to go!

Once again we've decided to set aside the first dare of each month to feature a theme that will run throughout the year. For 2011 we'll be taking inspiration from the flowers associated with each month, and the flowers associated with the month of January are the Snowdrop and the Carnation.

So we'd love to see cards made using one or both of these flowers as the starting point for your creations..


You can use the flowers, their special features or maybe do a little research and use the stories and symbolism associated with them as your inspiration.

We're looking forward to seeing your creations, so please come and let us know where we can see them.
Here are some cards from the team to help get you thinking
