Oh my! Yet another week has passed and I’ve managed to miss another Daring Cardmakers launch day with my card.
Actually the girls had prior notice that I would be late with my card this week because I had a very special house guest coming all the way from Switzerland to stay for the weekend, ……..my wonderful friend Nicki.
As you can imagine, there was no crafting going on.
What little time we had was spent chatting, eating and going to the Christmas Sing-A-Long at the Royal Albert Hall on Saturday afternoon, the main reason for Nicki’s visit.
I had mentioned that we go every year and what a great start to the festivities it always makes and because Nicki had never been to the Royal Albert Hall she decided to come over for it.....how great was that!
We had a fantastic time but before we knew where we were, it was over and Nicki had to return home. Still, I will cherish the wonderful memory of Nicki being the only one standing up in the Royal Albert Hall while singing Frosty the Snowman…….ok…it may have only been for a second or two but it was funny!
She sends her love and says ‘hi’ to those of you from Crafts By Carolyn and anyone else who knows her.
Anyway, with the weekend over and Nicki no longer here to distract me (my excuse) I was able to start catching up with things today.
The week before last I said I was going to update my blog but I never got around to it because things have just been so manic. I’m still up to my armpits with Christmas preparations but at least I’ve managed to make my card for this weeks dare…….well I’ve made two as it happens!
But before I show you those I’ll show you the card I made for the previous dare. The card was on the DCM blog but I just didn't find the time to put on here.
The brief was to make a card in around 10 minutes which was perfect for me considering how little time I seem to have at the moment.
My card was very plain and very simple.
Now this week’s 'team' dare was a bit more of a challenge.
It’s easy to use just Gold or Sliver on a card but much more difficult to incorporate them both together.
For the first card I made I took the easy option and just used Gold on its own.
Then I decided to have another go and used both the Gold and Silver.
So there you have it!
There’s no dare next week and the way things are going I’m not sure how much time I will have to get on here anyway.
I would just like to thank everyone who visits my blog and those that leave wonderful messages. Believe me, they are always appreciated.
I would also like to say a big thank you to all of you who have supported The Daring Cardmakers since it started a little over two years ago and made it as successful as it is today.
I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and enjoy the holiday in whatever way suites you best
Lots of Love
