Daring Cardmakers

Those of you who have followed me for yonks know that my favourite challenge blog is Daring Cardmakers - I love the variety of the dares, and the way they think outside the box, I have done a few guest designer spots, so when Kathy asked me if I would like to join the team on a permanent basis, I decided I could really do with a bit of creative stretching and said yes

Here is the first challenge of 2017 - elemental inspiration, and this is the inspiration photo........

 To be honest, I found it a bit of a challenge, mainly because after all those Christmas cards, I am a bit over snow and fir trees, and because I have been very short of time for the past couple of weeks, so I turned to my (neglected) Cricut, and cut out this pinecone from the Winter Woodland cartridge, added some frantage snow, and a few sequins. Be sure to check out the teams efforts here and join in with the dare - I bet there will be some pretty cool interpretations of the dare that will make me think 'ah ha! Why didn't I think of that.....'

I am doing a spot of baby sitting this weekend - cuddle time with Molly, perfect! Have a great weekend xx


  1. I love the difference in our terminology. "Yonks" - never heard that one. Awesome. Back to the card. The inspiration would have stumped me. I love the background/paper of the card. I've never heard of this blog and I'm going to go check it out now. Ta! - Kathy Wyatt

  2. Yep ... I'm one of those that have been following for "yonks" ... and I've loved every post, just as I love this card too. And it's actually still very appropriate for the season (at least here in the US) as parts of our Country are deep in the throws of winter. However, as you already know, "winter" is a forgotten word to those of us in Florida. OK, now I'm off to check out the other creativity offered for this inspirational image.

  3. A great winter card Enfys congrats on the new DT post. Enjoy your babysitting and have a lovely weekend x

  4. Lovely take on the pic Enfys, wintery without being too Christmassy!

  5. I think you did a great job with this challenge. I love all the pics of Molly you have shown so far! Can't wait to see more of your design challenges!!!

  6. Yay! Welcome to the team. Your card is super cute and not too christmassy at all ;-)

  7. Welcome to the team and fantastic to have you share your projects with us. Great winter wishes card.


I love reading your comments, thank you for taking the time
