Here's my card, I've gone for a 'Faux Fabric' look with some pleated and scrunched Daisy D Paper, and the 'Faux Printed Paper' made myself with some Stampin Up Ink that was brushed onto wet cardstock, and then sprinkled some salt on top to make an interesting pattern (this paper was used on the bottom handcut scallope, and threaded through the buckle)
other bits I've used are K&Company chipboard buckle, K&Company Sticker, and my own handcut flower from a lovely scrap of PP, and ofcourse my sewing machine :O)
So have you Dared to DARE yet?..... Come on I dare you!!!!

it's my turn to dare you all
"Your card can be any theme you like, just as long as it's got something you'd find in a Haberdashery Department on it
Alright then, grab that old sewing basket of yours or raid your sewing machine drawer, have a look at what creative bits are hidding away there....maybe it's buttons, a zip, hook & eye's, ribbons, braids, Dressmaking patterns, tape measures,Pins & Needles, lace, safety pins or embroidery thread....
so many wonderful little treasures just waiting to be added to your next card :O)
I'm going to add one more rule...
Yes you may stitch on your card, but that can't be your only haberdashery item...."
so happy to have you join in the fun
So here is my card, I've given into my 'lust for rust' on this card, and used a rusty old 'overalls' buckle and some ribbon for my 'Habby' items.

definition... the main body of matter in a book or manuscript. the actual wording of anything written or printed, short passage of scripture, etc
We'd like you to somehow incorporate text into your cards this week - not just one word.. but a portion of TEXT... like a poem, or newspaper print, Caligraphy, Even rip up an old text book and use some of the paper from it, there are masses of possibilities here, so let your imaginations run riot and let us see you texting to your heart's content!

We'd like you to have a go at making a cartoon inspired card! You could use the colours and patterns (eg Minnie Mouse's dress would mean a black, white and red spotty card; Winnie the Pooh red and um, honey coloured) or symbolic (eg using an anchor inspired by Popeye).

it's our Saffa's turn to dare us all...
Its quite a simple challenge really. All I ask is that you make use of beads on your cards. They can be seed beads, big chunky beads or little sequins, whatever takes your fancy. We can't wait to see your designs....I hope you don't go all beady eyed by the end of the week!!
We have another new Guest Designer joining us for the next couple of weeks> We're thrilled to announce that the immensely talented
Sheila (manicstamper) has agreed to join in with our dares. Sheila is an inspirational stamper and regularly teaches and demonstrates cardmaking techniques - she's even appeared on TV -
so it's a real honour to have her on the team.
So the above card is my take on this weeks Dare
I used some scrummy Decoupage paper for this one, the Japanese lady and writting are from the sheet of paper, and I also used some Basic Grey PP, the bead is the gorgeous little hummingbird bead on the tassel, organza butterfly, Also used is my Stampin Up Delight in life stamp, and Fancy Pants Rub-on.
I've been to Taree to teach a workshop at
Scrap A While
But I arrived the night before for the Midnight scrap
So I'll catch up this week with everyones blogs,
