New Beginnings

Oh Wow!

You girls have surpassed yourselves this week……….what a beautiful array of dotty cards you came up with for Vanessa’s dare. Every week we love seeing your creations and are amazed at how different they all are.

This week sees me (Sue) setting the very last dare of the year, as we’ll be taking a little break until January 8th.
After this week we'll also be saying goodbye to our lovely guest designer Vicky (AKA Dolly), who's been with us since the start of November. It's been great having you with us Vicky and thanks for letting us share your beautiful creations with everyone on the blog.

Now on with my dare:

New Beginnings

As we are coming to the end of the year and fast approaching the start of not only a new year but a new decade, I’d like to see some cards celebrating something new.

It could be the New Year, a New Home, a New Addition to the family or even a New Day, I’ll leave that up to you but what ever you decide, don’t forget to come back and leave us a link to your blog so we can come a see all your creations.

Following are a few cards that the design team have made to give you some inspiration, but before I go the whole team here at the Daring Cardmakers want to thank each and every one of you for your continued support during 2009.

We wish you all a very Happy Christmas and a Healthy and Peaceful New Year.
