Happy Birthday Daring Cardmakers !
It's the wonderful Daring Cardmakers Blogs birthday and they have challenged us card makers to make a card with a Friends theme, here's the full challenge:
The subject is, as in our original dare "friends", but this time the title is
CIRCLE of FRIENDS and we'd like you to incorporate at least one circle into your card.
I really enjoy joining in when I can with the challenges and get lots of inspiration from the wonderful cards that the other darers create so I couldn't miss out on this special one now could I!
I am frantically making cards and designing demos for my impending Create and Craft debut and this fitted wonderfully into an idea I had had earlier in the week. The papers are from my CD Funky Seasons they are from one one the summer collections. I used three different papers two to layer up as backgrounds and I cut a large circle from the third. I decided that it needed to be a bit more interesting so I cut around it with some fancy scissors, it ended up not being as circular as it originally was due to my bad cutting skills but with a bit of inking and faux stitching it fit the bill! The letters are cut from the matching large Alpha that goes with the paper collection that is going to be released on the new updated versions of the CD to be launched on C&C.
My parents are visiting us this weekend so I have loads of cleaning up to do..bathrooms are calling but so is my craftroom.. I wonder which one will win??!!
