DCM weekly dare - Beady Eyed...

This week at Daring Cardmakers
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.
Alrighty then, I've been away from my computer for a couple of days,
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,
thankyou for all the lovely emails & comments on my blog
I've received while away

So I wanted to make the ladies who attended the workshop an ATC each
and here it is, thought you might like a little lookie
Now Kathy asked me to show what I bought while I was there

and Mel is always asking me to show some either some stash or my scrappin place...

So here are the goodies I bought... some oooooohhhhhh so scrummy Li'l Davis paper, chipboard borders, letters and some delightful little arrows.....I haven't quite finished the LO I've made with these goodies yet, will post it soon....
AND.....

Have a lookie at these STAMPS will ya!!!!!!!

ooooooohhhhh I can't wait to get them all inky!!!!

Well I'll be back soon with some picy's from the class...

I had such a fun time I felt like I was a grown up again...

Big Thankyou to Lauren from Scrap A While

and to all of the other Gorgeous girls who made it soooo much fun!!!

What great ATC's. Very pretty.
The stamps you bought are divine -- who makes them?

Nancy Maxwell James said...

gorgeous ATC's Gillian - love the swirl in the background and your new stamps are just sooooo yummy! have fun getting them all "inky" because I KNOW when you do it will lead to a "scrummy" creation! :)
