You Big Softie

The cards shown so far for Lythan's fab Welsh Barbers/Dai Cuts/Die-Cuts (we'll leave it to you to choose which title you prefer....) have all been wonderful. The "Naughty Corner" - where we send all those who push the boundaries of our dares is the busiest it's ever been, mind you! Not sure which one of you is the ring-leader but we have our suspicions. hmmmm - answers on a postcard please....Really though, it's great to see you having fun with the challenges and dares and we love to see the results on your blogs and your links on our list, so keep them coming. We're being really gentle on you for the Little Extra this week (which might indicate that there's a "stinker" in the pipeline for Friday, of course.....), in fact we're feeling so soft and fluffy that that's going to be our theme for this one:
"You Big Softie"
We want you to use something
soft on your card feathers, velvet paper, fluffy fibres
all that soft, strokable stuff counts for this one
and that's it, easy-peasy, lemon-squeezy!

As usual, post a message here with your link and we'll come and see what you've come up with - remember, even if you don't have a blog you can still join in and send a photo of your card to our Gallery by emailing it to thedaringcardmakers@hotmail.co.uk
Here are a few cards from the team to get you t

These softie cards are great, I love the balloon one, such fun colours.

Juliet said...

I really enjoyed this one too. Mine is on my blog. Must go an tidy up the feathers now - they get everywhere!
Thanks for another great dare.

Sadie said...

Thought I'd have a go at your dare, but I might have pushed the boundaries on the soft stuff. I used Flower Soft for my card!!!!!
It is fun to use, but gets everywhere as any fluff would do.

Thanks for the challenge.


Sarah said...

Just finished my card. Love the design team cards!!


stamp and scrape said...

I remember rubbing my face in mohair jumpers 'cos they were soft. So that influenced my card. (I also remember the itchy feeling on my neck...)
Here's mine.
