Circle of Friends

Friends are so important to me and because of them , I understand myself too....thank you for all who are my friends, or wish to be my friends, from anywhere around the world ! :-))

Here is my entry for DCM, it's glad that I still have some spare time to make this card this week, as we have final exam and I need to revise the lessons with my son:-((

Here is the challenge and congrats to DCM for the first anniversary! It sure has so many sweet memories there:-))

Our Amazing Circle Of Friends
The group of friends who got together to form the Daring Cardmakers back in October 2006 has developed and grown into a huge circle of crafting and blogging friends who come together from all over the world to share their inspiration and their talents so enthusiastically, and are always so supportive of each other's cardmaking.
In honour of all of you who've helped make this blog so successful, and such a friendly place to "play" we've decided to revisit our very first dare for this our first anniversary, but with a twist.
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.

Supplies Used:

Stamps: Fancy Pants,MSE,PaperBag Studio

Patterned Papers: Basic Grey Mellow Collections

Ink: Distress Ink ( Ranger Industries),Versafine( Tsukineko)

PS Have you tried IrfanView (http://www.irfanview.com/) ? it is a free softwear you could use to adjust photos. So you could downsize your header. (Just a suggestion, hope you don't mind) :)
