DCM weekly dare - I can see clearly now This week at Daring Cardmakers
our Kel is setting you an UNREAL dare.
are you ready ?? Kel says- Okay, this week I would like you to use some acetate, vellum, plasma or anything else remotely 'see-through' on your card. That's it!

As you know, Bety has been with us for the last couple of weeks as Guest Designer and has done a fantastic job. Many, many thanks Bety for your support and your beautiful work on the Daring Card Makers Design team....we've loved having you with us.
Which leads us on to our next Guest Designer- who we are very proud to announce will be with us for the next couple of weeks......and that lovely person is KIRSTY WISEMAN. So, please join us in offering Kirsty a huge welcome, we (the design team) are really looking forward to working with you over the next couple of weeks.

Cool bits for my Card this week I chose to use - Basic Grey Numbers Transparency, Heidi Swapp Chipboard Numbers, Creative Imaginations Journaler's notebook page (that's the white stripe paper with the brackets under the transparency), Stamp-It Australia PP (thats the lovely script pp you can see under the transparency), ACME label maker, los tres caballeros stamp (I just cut up the stamped image and only used one of the chaps) sorry can't remember which brand this stamp is..., Versa black ink, and ofcourse my sewing machine.. have a great weekend everyone!
So have you Dared to DARE?...Come on I dare you!!!

WOW - lovely card Gillian.

I just stopped by to also say THANK YOU for the beautiful card and items you sent me as part of the Daring Cardmakers challenge prize. You even parted with Heidi Swapp - definitely above and beyond the call of duty - he, he!!!!!!
I was a big surprise to get a parcel from Australia.

Thank you, once again.
