Cafe Chic!

Good morning everyone, my name is Vanessa, aka Ellepiggo, I've been cardmaking for several years now and I'm delighted to be part of the Daring Cardmakers team. This is my first time at setting the dare and as we're on "firsts" I thought about the first thing that springs to my mind every morning - Coffee!! LOL!

Yes, I'm a bit of a cappuccino/latte macchiato girl, so I want to see lots of cards inspired by coffee!! Coffee colours, cup shaped cards, card inspired by a coffee jar label, using coffee beans on your card, coffee shop logos on your cards etc etc.....

So, why not get creating those cards then pop back here and leave your link so we can come and see your fabulous work. In the meantime, here are a few cards that the Design Team have come up with :-

Stop press - we have now used a random number generator to pick the winners of the dare sponsored by Download Dottie and Charmed cards and Crafts!

The winner of either 2 downloads or the Christmas download is Michele of "my little space on the WWW"

The winner of the surprise prize from Karen at Charmed Cards and Crafts is Caz of "A load of old blogocks"

Could you both please email putting "DCM winner" as the subject and let Karen know which prize you've won. Congratulations to you both and a huge thank you to everyone who took part. We'd also like to thank Louise and Karen for sponsoring the dare :o)
