Di’s sketch this week provided some inspiration for a friend’s birthday next week. Actually, I like the linear, simple lines of this week’s sketch, I can see quite a few cards *different but inspired by*
I also used felt, which is great because it means I’ve managed to complete a DCM dare as well. I like 2 birds.
Ok, I’m late with this one – both in terms of doing it and blogging it. I completed the card itself on Monday night (whilst watching Bones…. now that is heating up a bit, don’t you think??!) and I can’t remember if Monogrammatic was last week’s lil extra, or the week before. Anyhooo, it’s here now – and in the safe hands of the recipient Tuesday just gone.
That at least I got done on time!
Oh yay! Look what I found at the DCM blog - a mid-week dare to make a male card…. oh yay! I can join in this one – I’m making a few boys cards of late!
Look a bit lower down, there’s a baby boy card I made for a swap.
Then this one was made for the C-man (Mr 5′s best mate) who turned 6 just a couple of weeks ago.
And I AM going to be making another baby boy card in teh next day or two – so I think I can include myself in this challenge! So, hello all you DCMers!
I’ve been taking in the good folks over at DCM for a while now. Some of my cards have seemed to have met their challenge for the week so I’ve linked them back here. However, this is the FIRST time I have actually produced a card based on their challenge.
This week we’re joining forces with the wonderful team of Scrapbookers over
on the Everyone is Speshal blog. We’re daring each other and you to make a
Really Romantic Scrapbook Layout – but on a card!
Scrapbookers are challenged to downsize your usual a 12×12 LO onto a teenyweeny one – maximum of 6×6, which can be sent safely through the mail.
Cardmakers – you’re used to working on a small
space, and you know all about the ribbons, brads and other bits and bobs – but
can you take on board all the other little touches that are used on a scrapbook
page – the titles, the journalling, the photographs etc?
My card is a 4×4 layout – the first time I’ve worked on something so small! It was quite fun – only just enough room to do what I wanted! I chose to do a photo-less lo as I felt the title and the journalling explained all.
Anyway, I know someone that was definitely challenged by this one – and she did a great job. Go on over and take a look at all the lovely cards the DCM girls do. Then why don’t YOU have a go too?
