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.
Stamps: Fancy Pants,MSE,PaperBag Studio
Patterned Papers: Basic Grey Mellow Collections
Ink: Distress Ink ( Ranger Industries),Versafine( Tsukineko)
Punches: Marvy Giga Scalloped Circle Punch 3",Marvy Mega Circle Punch 2 1/2"

I really love this card, because the child looks vintage, the ribbon looks vintage too, and the rub-on, make the card so "old" :-)

"O Christmas Tree. O Christmas Tree" Want to guess what needs to be featured on your cards this week? Yes, we want to see lots and lots of Christmas Trees - that should help you get those stocks of cards looking a bit healthier.
and Arty Girls
This week's challenge is 'stitches'...feel free to interpret our theme's any way you choose.....you could do real stitching, faux stitching, use the word 'stitches', sew a button on your project...it's entirely up to you ;)
I don't have my sewing mechine, yes, I know my mother has one, but that one is really old, Singer, product in 1969!! Dad bought it for my mom when they married! Really really old and BROKEN, it's antique now:-)
So I use faux stitches, just pierce holes with a needle!Very simple, but need to do on the back of the card.
Supplies Used: Patterned paper from American Craft, Basic Grey
