So this time we'd like you to make "Get Well Soon" type cards. That's it - nothing too tricky or complicated this week, just a little nudge in the "Be Prepared" direction.

Firstly make a list of 10-20 crafty items you have in your stash, whether it be brads, ribbons, peel-off's, craft robo, dies, stamps, glittter, buttons, flowers, patterned papers, paint...
Next, ask someone non-crafty to pick 3-5 of your numbers or pieces of paper from your from your hat.
Finally, make a card using ONLY the items chosen. A card blank, some sort of sticky stuff and your basic craft tools are allowed If you want to make it really challenging, list plenty of items that you haven't used in a while, or thought you may never use again!

Oh man when I saw what Tracie dared us to do this week.... a cold sweat come over Me! I had a lookie at what I normally do... it struck me that I never use white cardstock, I rarely use rectangle cards, have never used white ribbon on anything, and esp never combine any of the before mentioned...I always use lots of Printed paper, lots of embellishments... lots of coloured cardstock and always, always, always... SQUARE cards.....
So with this knowlege I set about to create my 'out of MY comfort Zone' card.... and here it is... This card is actually all white, I've just got it sitting on a pink bit of paper for the photo.
We were also asked to discribe how it felt to make a card 'out of our comfort zone'... I've gotta say to start with I felt a bit grumpy...not being able to play with all my fav things... But when I started playing, it kinda felt fun, and even thrilling... like making my very first card all over again... and you know I even liked it when I was finished... LOL!!!!!
Go and check out what the other girls have come up with....This dare really stretched us all I think, so thanks heaps Tracie.. it was fun...
So Have you DARED to DARE Yet?.... COME ON I DARE YOU!!!!!
Oh almost forgot, the reason I'm posting this late is we've been away for the weekend.. my Father In Law's 70th B'day, Remember the card... he loved it... and had a wonderful chuckle at the bible verse used...and was particularly taken by the farming newsprint Printed Paper...
HAPPY BIRTHDAY PA....
