Ribbon for men!
Thats the theme of this weeks dare by the Daring Cardmakers. This one was great fun, and with so many cool ribbons out there to choose from it was a great excuse to aquire a few more to add to my collection. Mens cards can be really difficult so I hope you find this challenge inspiring and make some fab cards for the men in your lives too. Rather embarassingly, all the ric rac for the happy birthday card and more was from my stash. Now why do I have 6 different colours of blue ric-rac. Not sure how that happened but it must have been for a very good reason!
The playstation one is made partly with ribbons already in my stash with a few extra from Little Silver Hat. the controllers and screen are glossy accented which is fast becoming my new favourite thing, well after ribbons and patterned papers anyway. I'm really looking forward to seeing your creations, remember you can still join in if you dont have a blog by emailing us, details are all on the dare blog at the top.
Other exciting news today, our very own Daring Cardmaker Jo Kill is up for Cardmaker of the Year in Simply Cards and Papercraft mag. If you havent placed your vote yet you can find the form on the SC&P link. Congratulations Jo and best of luck, not that I think you need it, your work is stunning!
